Tire/Wheel Removal from Car
Your Goodyear service technician starts by removing the wheels from your vehicle. At this point, the technician takes a quick look at the condition of your brakes and suspension components. While this look doesn’t replace a full inspection should you be concerned about brake or suspension performance, the technician could spot something that will need addressed in the near future. The technician further inspects the lug nuts and wheel studs to make sure the wheel can safely be mounted back on the car.
Now that the tire has been removed from the wheel, the technician will inspect the wheel for any potential damage and clean the wheel of any debris or dust. Any damage to the wheel could affect both how well the tire seals to the wheel and how well the wheel and tire will balance once properly mounted. Once inspected, the bead areas (the surfaces where the tire touches the wheel) are cleaned to ensure a proper seal.
