Subaru Service Center in NJ Helps Drivers Keep On Rolling

We’ve all had them: not quite accidents, or even incidents, but little mishaps on the road that do not-so-great things to our vehicles. Since our wheels are where our vehicles make contact with the ground, the unfortunate reality is that it’s often our wheels that take the brunt of these little oopsies.

At our Subaru dealer in NJ, we know that these little mishaps can—and do—happen. When you’ve felt your wheel grinding into the curb while parking a bit too close, have hopped the curb a bit, or have encountered an unexpected pothole, these scrapes and scratches can leave some undesirable marks behind. Is the damage just cosmetic, though, or more serious? It will take an expert opinion to make that call.

Do I Need to Replace My Wheel?

Our Subaru tire and wheel professionals in NJ know exactly what keeps your vehicle rolling, so when in doubt it’s best to pay us a visit and let us give your set of wheels a once over. Don’t worry, though; we’ve got some tips to help you figure out just how serious your issue is!

The key thing to keep in mind with wheels and tires is that the bead of the tire needs to form a seal with your wheel in order to keep air in. If the wheel isn’t round, the bead can’t set and the tire will fail to hold air. This is obviously a big problem!

If your damage seems like it’s just a scrape or scratch to the wheel’s surface, there’s a good chance that that’s all it is. You can still fix it for cosmetic purposes, but it may not be necessary to repair or replace the wheel just to keep going.

If the lip of your wheel is dented, bent, or cracked, it will soon fail to hold air in the tire (assuming that it hasn’t already). If this is the case, we suggest replacing the wheel with your spare and coming to see our experts for a professional opinion!
