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 Fussell Tire.
If you feel excessive vibration in the car, or wobbling of the steering wheel, your tires may be unbalanced. Fussell Tire has the professional equipment and technicians to measure the balance of your vehicle's tires and make necessary corrections. Call us at 919-362-9094 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 Fussell Tire, 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.
Fussell Tire also offers good used tires for sale. These may be a solution for you if you need tires but can't afford new tires. Fussell Tire selects our used tires very carefully to ensure quality and safety to our customers.
We Offer Most Major Brands of Tires
At Fussell Tire, 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 Fussell Tire 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.

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.
