Glen Burnie MD Automotive Tire
A vehicle's tires rival the brakes as the most important safety device. Understanding the importance that tires play in your vehicle's performance and safety will go a long way in ensuring your ride in Glen Burnie is a safe and comfortable one.
Atlantic Transmission Service is considered by many to be the best tire center in Glen Burnie due to our expertise in helping our customers choose the best tire for their automobiles. Our tire experts take the time to explain to our Glen Burnie customers that most tires consist of 4 parts — tread, sidewalls, inner carcass, and beads. The tread is the part of the tire that meets the surface of the road and provides you with the traction needed when driving the streets in and around Glen Burnie under all types of driving conditions. The side walls are designed to be flexible and absorb loads when driving. The inner carcass serves to resist impacts from potholes and bumps. The beads are the part of the tire where the rubber touches the metal of the wheel. Aside from providing a comfortable ride in and around Glen Burnie, tires are designed to cope with the forces often associated with vehicle acceleration, braking, and steering. A common problem faced by many tire manufacturers is that no one tire is best for ALL the road conditions drivers in Glen Burnie experience. The tire experts at Atlantic Transmission Service know that your tires must be strong enough to resist damage while having enough flexibility to cushion impacts. Additionally, the rubber of the tire needs to be hard enough to provide for thousands of miles when driving on the hard road surfaces of Glen Burnie but soft enough to provide adequate traction when it rains and the roads of Glen Burnie are wet and dangerous. The design of the tire must be a compromise between these conflicting considerations.
