Fixed-price tire change in Tallinn - fast and safe at the CAREXPERT service center
A car rim already has a tyre mounted on the wheel. The advantage of changing a wheel is that it is quite simple and very quick. Most cars need to have their wheels changed twice a year. Just before summer and just before winter. If the wheels are still in good condition, they can be used for the next season. Good wheels are stored until the next change.
Using the right set of wheels - always safer
When changing wheels, make sure you use exactly the right wheels for the model specified by the manufacturer. The correct size depends on the exact specifications. The correct wheel dimensions can be found in the side of the driver's door. Only with the correct set of wheels can you drive safely in summer and winter. When the wheels are stored, it is also advisable to balance them. If this is not done, the steering wheel may start to "wobble" the next time you drive fast.
Wheels perform several functions on a vehicle:
> They transfer engine and braking energy to the ground, enabling the car to start, move and stop.
> They allow you to steer the car precisely and thus change direction while driving.
> Together with the chassis, the wheels also compensate for uneven ground for a comfortable ride.

When should you change your winter tyres?
Legislation obliges drivers to always use tyres suited to road conditions, i.e. summer or winter tyres. The law provides for "tyres suitable for weather conditions". According to the law, winter tyres (with adequate tread) may be used instead of summer tyres, even if their tread is not optimal for winter in summer. Failure to comply with the regulation will result in serious fines. It is therefore advisable to change tyres at least twice a year. Mid-October is a good time to go to the workshop to replace your summer tyres with winter tyres. This will ensure a flawless and safe change of any type of wheel.
When should you change your winter tyres for summer tyres?
It is advisable to change winter tyres for summer tyres at Easter.

Changing tyres - how is tyre fitting done?
To change the wheel, the car is placed on a lifting platform in the workshop. A special tool is then used to fit the wheel. First the old wheel bolts are loosened and then the entire wheel is carefully removed. The new wheel is fitted in its place. It should be noted that the wheels must be fitted and repositioned exactly according to the manufacturer's instructions and in the correct direction.
What happens if the wheel is fitted incorrectly?
If the nuts are too tight, the threads can be seriously damaged. The flange is then dismantled and the resulting costs are incurred. If the fitting is left too loose when the wheel is mounted, this poses a serious safety risk when driving. The wheel is not optimally locked. The wheel can no longer perform the above tasks properly. In the worst case, for example during emergency braking, this damage can be life-threatening.
