Are you looking for a reliable tire dealer in the Denver metro area? Look no further, DR Auto & Truck Repair will inspect your vehicles tires to check if any maintenance is recommended such as rotating or balancing the tires. Properly maintained tires improve the steering, stopping, traction, and load-carrying capability of your vehicle. We also offer free air pressure checks.
And if your tires need replacing, DR Auto & Truck is a tire dealer in Englewood that offers tires for all makes and models and will meet or beat other Englewood tire dealer & Denver tire dealer retailer's advertised prices. We have the latest Hunter tire mounting and balancing equipment as well as the Hunter Computerized Alignment system which we always recommend after having a new set of tires installed.
Your tire maintenance checklist should include:
- Tire Pressure - Under inflation results in unnecessary tire stress, irregular tire wear, and loss of control; all contributing factors to a possible accident. A car or truck tire can lose up to half of its inflation pressure and not appear to be flat. We recommend you have your air pressure checked at least once a month.
- Car & Truck Alignment - A bad jolt from hitting a curb or pothole can throw your car or truck's front end out of alignment and damage your tires. You should have your tire's alignment checked periodically. See our Alignments page for detailed information.
- Tire Rotation - Regularly rotating your car or truck's tires will help you achieve more uniform tire wear thus extending the life of your tire and ensuring safe driving. How often should you rotate your tires? Consult your vehicle's owner's manual for specific recommendations. The general guideline for tire rotation is approximately every 5,000 miles.
- Tire Tread - Advanced and unusual tire wear can reduce the ability of your tire's tread to grip the road in adverse conditions. Visually check your tires for uneven wear, looking for high and low areas or unusually smooth areas. Also check for signs of tire damage.
Maintenance TipAll wheel and 4-wheel drive vehicles must use the same tire (manufacturer and tread depth) on all 4 wheels to avoid difficulty shifting in & out of 4-wheel drive and possible transfer case damage.
Tread Depth - Over time, the tread on tires will wear considerably and could result in very hazardous driving conditions. Tires sold in North America are required to have indicators called "wear bars" (a line that runs across the tread pattern). When the wear bar shows, it indicates that the tread is worn down to 2/32 of an inch and it's time to replace the tire (according to most states' laws, tires are legally worn out when the wear bar is visible). You can also use the old school method of inserting a penny into the tread to check the remaining tire life. If Lincoln's head is visible, tires should be replaced.
Age - In addition to the tread depth, you should consider the age of your tire when it comes to safety. Old tires pose a safety hazard because the rubber compounds in a tire deteriorate with time, regardless of the condition of the tread. If you drive only 6,000 miles a year or have a car that you use only on weekends, aging tires could be an issue. This applies to spare tires as well as "new" tires that have never been used. If you are in need of a tire dealer (car tires and truck tires) in Englewood don't hesitate to call or stop by DR Auto & Truck Repair.

Great alternative to Courtesy Ford. Had my F-250 worked on by this shop and was happily surprised with the price and friendliness of everyone there. They are also very quick and will be sure to call you with any info on your truck. Feel like they love what they do. Was not even charged for dropping the truck off for an inspection, got it back before they closed. These guys are awesome.
This is the best repair shop I have ever visited the are fast friendly and do a great job of diagnosing and repairing any problem that I have on the 5 cars I drive
