At Fussell Tire, we want our Apex customers to have the opportunity to feel comfortable in their vehicle. You can leave the repairs and services to our professionals, but please don't hesitate to ask us questions about why a service is needed or how it occurred. Give us a call at 919-362-9094, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Fussell Tire offers.
Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement
Brake pad problems can usually be identified by squealing brakes. If your brake pads deteriorate completely, you'll hear a grinding metal-on-metal sound when braking, meaning that it's too late and you're ruining your rotors or drums! Those with knowledge of auto repair may be able to fix this at home, but you should always see an auto repair professional immediately if you have brake problems.
In a disc brake system, rotors are attached to your vehicle's wheels. When the brake pads grip the rotor, they bring both the rotor and wheels to a stop. However, the friction causes grooves and cracks to appear over time. Resurfacing brings the rotor back to a "like-new" condition, reducing squealing and wobbling. Fussell Tire will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.
The brake caliper houses your brake pads and fits around the rotor like a clamp, pressing the pads against the rotor when you brake. A brake caliper problem could cause uneven braking, making your car slide forward when you brake. Uneven braking can also cause your vehicle to slide out of control in bad weather conditions, so contact Fussell Tire as soon as possible.
A brake hose is a tube carrying pressurized brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. A crushed hose can cause a lagged or slow brake, and a leak in the hose can cause the brake, or the entire brake system, to fail. These don't need to be replaced often, but should be replaced at the first sign of cracking or wear.
Brake Fluid Flushes
Brake fluid will absorb water from the air over time, causing the brake system to become less effective and the fluid to become corrosive, possibly damaging the system. It is important to perform a brake fluid flush regularly to ensure that your vehicle is using fresh fluid. Talk to our technicians at Fussell Tire about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.
Anti-Lock Brake System
Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) ensure that the wheels don't stop rotating during braking, preventing the car from skidding and offering greater control. If your ABS light comes on, visit Fussell Tire where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.

I'm thrilled with the results of my recent alignment - thanks for making a 40 year old Corvette drive like new again. Only a family owned/local business can provide that kind of care, competence and customer service consistently. I look forward to doing business again soon.
Always a pleasure to find a local family business that meets my needs. Kent and Teresa are fine folks. All work done to my satisfaction.
I went in for an inspection. The lady at the front desk, Theresa was very kind and professional. She thoroughly answered all my questions which I had quite a few. The inspector Justin was very thoroughly and efficient. It was overall great customer service care and automotive service.
Love this place! Nice folks, can walk from my house and they always get me in and out quickly! Wouldn't trust my little truck "Tinkbell" to anyone else :-)
Service was so quick, my car was on jacks in less than a minute of me pulling in the lot. Everyone was friendly. Prices great. I will be back and tell friends.
