Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)

Tire Discounters ASE-Certified Technicians Can Recalibrate Your ADAS.

Finally: An Alternative to the Dealer!

As cars get smarter, it becomes increasingly important to keep up with the latest technology.  At Tire Discounters, we have state-of-the-art technology and trained technicians able to service ADAS systems. 

What does all this mean?  We keep you safe for a fraction of the cost at a dealership.

Self-driving vehicles maybe a few years away from road domination, but advanced technology systems inside these vehicles are starting to be commonplace in new vehicles. These features are called Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and are designed to automate, adapt, and enhance vehicle systems for safety and better driving.

At Tire Discounters, we offer Dynamic and Static Recalibration Services across All Makes and Models

  • ACC - Adaptive Cruise Control 
  • LDW -  Lane Departure Warning 
  • FFC -  Forward Facing Camera 
  • NV - Night Vision (Available for Mercedes Benz, Volkswagen, Porsche, Audi, and General Motors)
  • AVM - Around View Monitoring 
  • BSD - Blind Spot Detection
  • RCW - Rear Collision Warning
  • Radar

These safety systems are specifically designed to avoid accidents by offering technologies that alert the driver to potential problems or to avoid collisions by implementing safeguards. From automatic parking to lane departure warnings to blind-spot monitoring, these new systems are improving safety for all drivers.

Located in strategic positions around the outside and inside of the vehicle, these systems have their own unique set of warning lights or sounds. Like blind-spot monitors, these are generally located on your side-mirrors and a warning signal lights up when a vehicle is in your blind spot.

One location specifically that has ADAS is your windshield. Advancement of technology and engineering has allowed our rear-view mirror to be more than a simple mirror. Cameras and sensors are now being built into the rear-view mirror which is attached to the windshield.

A very important factor to understand with windshields is that if your vehicle is not properly aligned to manufacturer specifications, your ADAS (safety systems) can be compromised. A replacement windshield that is slightly off, will significantly affect ADAS connected to your windshield.

When to have your ADAS checked

Manufacturers recommend that ADAS needs to be recalibrated if body panel replacement or repair on your vehicle, replacement windshield installation, or front-end repair. If you have any of these three things done to your vehicle you should have your ADAS checked.

The speed rating of a tire is based on U.S. Government standards for reaching and sustaining a specified speed. Typically, a tire with a higher speed rating results in better handling. Speed ratings apply only to the tire itself, and not to a particular vehicle. Putting a tire rated for a certain speed on a vehicle does not mean that the vehicle can be safely operated at the tire's rated speed.

The load range on a tire helps determine its ability to contain air pressure and its overall strength. Ranges are expressed using a number and the higher the number, the stronger the tire. These measurements are primarily for light trucks and SUV’s.

Tread depth is the distance between the top of the tread rubber to the bottom of the tire's deepest grooves.  In the United States, tread depth is measured in 32nds of an inch.

A tire’s maximum load is the maximum amount of weight the tire is designed to hold. The tire’s load carrying capacity is directly related to the tire’s size and amount of inflation pressure that is actually used. Each load range has a assigned air pressure identified in pounds per square inch (psi) at which the tire's maximum load is rated.

The total width of the tire, including any raised features on the sidewall. 

This is how many layers of rubber and other materials are in the tire.  

The measurement, in inches, from rim flange to the other rim flange. 

The maximum width of a wheel that a tire can be put onto. 

The minimum width of a wheel that a tire can be put onto.  

A tire's section width (also called "cross section width") is the measurement of the tire's width from its inner sidewall to its outer sidewall (excluding any protective ribs, decorations or raised letters) at the widest point. 

What makes up a tire; each ply, the sidewall, the tread, and bead.  

This number will tell you how well the tire will disperse heat buildup. 

This is how much weight a tire is rated to hold.

A tire’s maximum inflation pressure (PSI) is the highest "cold" inflation pressure that the tire is designed to contain. When measuring a tire’s max PSI, it is important the tire is "cold," because warmer temperatures can cause the tire pressure to temporarily increase resulting with inaccurate readings. This measurement should only be used when called for on the vehicle’s tire placard or in the vehicle’s owners manual.

The mileage warranty of a tire indicates the number of miles that a tire is estimated to last. If a tire fails to last for the number of miles indicated by the warranty, the customer will be given credit from the tire manufacturer toward a new tire based on how many miles short of the estimate the tire fell. Some restrictions apply. 

TD will repair flat tires as long as it can be done safely in accordance with Tire Industry Association (TIA) Guidelines.  Excludes: Under 40 series, run-flats, mud tires, trailer tires, off-road vehicles, and any tire over six (6) years old.  Other exclusions may apply.  See store for details.

Free Alignment with 4-Tire Purchase

National accounts not included.  Other exclusions may apply.

Our Nationwide Worry Free Guarantee offers FREE unlimited Tire Repairs for the entire life of your tires. If your tire can't be fixed and is over 3/32" tread, no worries, we will give you a replacement tire at any time, up to 3 years. We'll even help get your tire changed by including reimbursement for Roadside Assistance (up to $75) for the first 12 months at no additional cost. Effective: August 24, 2017. For complete details, see our warranty at any Tire Discounters location.

Components of the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) sensor wears over time.

A TPMS Service Kit is suggested each time a tire/wheel is serviced. If left unchanged, over time, these components of the TPMS may corrode, leak or fail.

Tire/wheel service is defined as when tire is removed from the wheel.

The represents the smallest and widest size wheels that are recommended by the tire manufacturer for the tire to be mounted on.
