Balancing and Alignment
We are experts in tires, balancing, and alignment, and our specialty is matching the right tires for your
car, your budget and your driving requirement.
Our Tire Machine is designed especially for low profile tires and will clamp wheels up to 23 inches
in external diameter. Special tools and a pneumatic blade makes the tire change secure and protects
the expensive alloy wheels against scratches and abrasions.
Our Digital Wheel Balancer has all the parameter settings to read dynamic, static, and performance
alloys with an accuracy that your Porsche or Exotic Car requires to develop full performance.
Today's high performance tires are much more durable than they were a decade ago, but they still
wear faster than their tamer counterparts and are extremely expensive. Their benefits include very
high adhesion on both dry and wet pavement and rapid response to steering inputs. They also provide
very high stability at speeds that reach far beyond those allowed on Canadian roads.
Tire safety is a hot topic these days. Everyone is worried about getting a blowout, not to mention
getting stranded with a flat tire. Fortunately, there are a few easy steps you can take to reduce your risks.
Tires must be replaced when the tread is worn down to 1.6mm in order to prevent skidding and
hydroplaning. Built-in tread wear indicators, or "wear bars" which look like narrow stripes of smooth
rubber across the tread will appear on the tire when the tread is worn down to 1.6mm. When you see
these "wear bars" the tire is worn out and should be replaced.
Visually check your tires for signs of uneven wear. You may have irregular tread wear if there are high
and low areas or unusually smooth areas, indicating that your car might require 4-wheel alignment and/or geometry check. We are available to assist you in your tire inspection and alignment.
Tire safety starts with good maintenance and it includes having the right tools for the job. At RSP-Motorsports we answer all of the frequently asked questions about tire safety, and help you find
the products that will keep you safe, suit your lifestyle and help keep your tires in tiptop shape.
