Tires are the single most important safety feature on your car. They are the only thing that connects the car to the road, and life-saving technologies like antilock brakes and electronic stability control cannot do their job if the tires don't have a good grip on the pavement.
As the adage goes, nothing lasts forever. Car owners still need to replace their tires a few times or more throughout the life of a typical vehicle. Despite advances in longer-lasting tires, actual tread life will vary by car type, tire type (such as all season or high performance), driving aggressiveness, and even road and weather conditions. Proper maintenance and responsible driving can maximize the mileage in a set of tires.
We offer these services to help you prolong the life of your tires.
Wheel alignment (or simply alignment) is standard car maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer's specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and the steering systems operate at their desired angles - this reduces tire wear. Alignment is a complicated process and not all mechanics get it right. To have experts handle your car's alignment, visit Friendship Complete Automotive Care.
If you feel excessive vibration in the car, or wobbling of the steering wheel, your tires may be unbalanced. Friendship Complete Automotive Care has the professional equipment and technicians to measure the balance of your vehicle's tires and make necessary corrections. Call us at 770-945-5527 if you have questions, or contact us so we can evaluate your tires.
An incorrectly repaired tire could pose a safety hazard to you and your passengers. At Friendship Complete Automotive Care, our tire experts will determine whether your tires are able to be repaired, or if they need to be replaced. If the tires are repairable, our certified technicians will make sure they are repaired correctly and get you back on the road.
It is recommended that tires, including the spare, be periodically inspected by a tire service professional during routine maintenance intervals such as oil changes and tire rotations. We will inspect the tire tread and sidewalls for irregular tread wear, cracking, scrapes, bulges, cuts, snags, foreign objects or other damage resulting from use. We will remove any stones, glass, foreign objects, etc. embedded in the tread to prevent further damage. Even minor damage can lead to further injury and eventual tire failure. Tires with excessive cracking on the tread or sidewall(s) should be removed from service. This is typically caused by under inflation, over loading, improper storage, and/or improper long-term parking.
Tire rotation is the practice of moving the wheels and tires of an automobile from one position to another, to ensure even tire wear, which extends the useful life of a set of tires. Rotation is important because each tire on a car carries a different amount of weight, making them wear at different rates. By rotating them, you basically even out those differences. Your owner's manual will tell you how often to rotate your tires, but as a rule of thumb, it should be done every 5,000 to 8,000 miles.
We Offer Most Major Brands of Tires
At Friendship Complete Automotive Care, we understand that tires are an important part of your car. The quality of tires and material used on them highly affects the vehicle's performance. Their main purpose is to protect the wheel's rims and improve vehicle performance. For this reason, we only deal with brand name tires. Also, we offer fleet tire management services to ensure you are getting the best value, fuel economy, and life from your tires.
Once a need for new tires is determined, it is necessary to identify the best tires for your vehicle and driving demands. Look for tires that do well in tests for braking, handling, and resistance to hydroplaning. Winter traction should also be considered, if applicable. Let tread wear, ride comfort, noise, and rolling resistance be tiebreakers. Trust the tire experts at Friendship Complete Automotive Care to help you choose the right tires for your vehicle.
We offer most major brands of tires. These are a few of our preferred brands.
Friendly, professional and explained to me what needed to be done to repair my car. I dropped it off and picked it up that night. Definitely will recommend this family owned business for your service needs.
Super friendly staff! Took the car for an oil change and was really impressed .
Family owned business where they ALWAYS take good care of you and your automobile. We have 4 vehicles entrusted with Friendship Automotive in Suwanee!
Found myself unexpectedly with a day off and needed an oil change. They were able to get it done in about an hour. Friendly service, reasonable price. Danny and Schylar were very nice. Glad to see a family run business.
Friendship Auto has taken great care of my commercial vehicles and are always there to answer any questions you might have. Great folks to deal with!!!
They are fast, efficient, knowledgeable, and have provided us with great prices! We definitely recommend!
I had a hood alignment problem, my hood flipped up and shattered my window. I came in freaked out and they reassured me, fixed it in 24 hours and had me on my way. I will be back. Great Company!
We were volunteering with OCC/Samaritans Purse and had car trouble. Not knowing anything about the area, and not wanting to get stranded, we asked a local volunteer. Friendship was recommended as a trustworthy operation and I can say it was a very accurate recommendation! Everyone was very kind, personable, and extremely helpful. What could have been a very stressful experience turned out to be easily resolved with Friendship's help! They are a blessing!!
They're the best! The first time I came to Friendship my car's hood wouldn't open, and instead of writing me off or pushing me to a body shop they sat there, stopped what they were doing and put real time and effort into my rinky-dink versa. Not only did they get the hood open, but they rigged it up to open free of charge! 4 years later I'm now taking my 2017 mustang to them exclusively for any routine maintenance or serious issues!
I needed to have a deep scratch repaired that someone bestowed upon my nearly new car. Dropped it off one morning and picked up it up the next afternoon good as new! It was freshly washed and smelled like new. They even cleaned my floor mats. While they might not have been the cheapest, they were not he most expensive either. Of course no one wants to pay for a repair like this out of pocket, but at least I felt comfortable with the friendly staff, and they provided me with a good service experience.
I highly recommend this shop!! Friendly and quick service. They explained to me what was wrong with my car, and patiently answered my questions. I felt very valued as a customer and will absolutely return!
