Why Choose Vuletich Tyres
Your paying good money when buying tyres, you and your vehicle deserve the best!
Every tyre shop after fitting a tyre will balance the wheel before it goes on the vehicle. But Vuletich Tyres are the only tyre shop in New Zealand that not only balance the wheel they also carry out a computerised road test on it. This is extremely important and benefical for the customer as there is no such thing as two tyres being exactly the same, and no such thing as a perfectly round tyre. For example, if the tyre is starting to exceed limits for roundness and the rim is not perfectly round, the machine will determine the optimun place to put the tyre on the rim to make the least runout as possible in the assemble. This will result in better handling and comfort.
The road test also tells us if the tyre has beaded properly on the rim. Suryeys done have shown that one in four tyres fitted in NZ aren't beaded properly when fitted, and this often results in a shake occuring shortly after new tyres have been fitted. It is often thought that a weight has fallen off but in actual fact the tyre has finally beaded and in doing so moved its mass slightly causing the assembly to be unbalanced.
Also lateral pull is measured between each pair of tyres; it is extremely rare to find a pair of tyres without some lateral pull. When a tyre is made cords are placed on the case at a radial angle, if this angle differs slightly between tyres this will cause a lateral pull. We can use this lateral pull as an adjustment tool to make the vehicle hold road camber better, increasing driver comfort. In a set of non-directional or asymmetric tyres there are 12 different placement combinations. The machine allows us to work out the optimun postition for perfect handling. No other tyre shop can do this!
The machine is the only one in northland capable of balancing large wheels because it has a 40mm spindle intead of the standard 20mm spindle. Wheels have become larger and larger now and if you have a 4x4 or a car with larger wheels the 20mm spindle is not adequate for the job. It will flex and give inaccurate readings, which is why some of you can't get the shake fixed in your 4x4 or car with larger wheels.
When buying tyres from Vuletich tyres you receive all this technology for free, so why go elsewhere for less. Your paying good money when buying tyres, you and your vehicle deserves the best.
