The Best Tire Shop in Iowa City


Tires are the single most important safety feature on your car. They are the only thing that connects the car to the road, and life-saving technologies like anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control cannot do their job if the tires don't have a good grip on the pavement.

As the adage goes, nothing lasts forever. Car owners still need to replace their tires a few times or more throughout the life of a typical vehicle. Despite advances in longer-lasting tires, actual tread life will vary by car type, tire type (such as all season or high performance), driving aggressiveness, and even road and weather conditions. Proper maintenance and responsible driving can maximize the mileage in a set of tires.

We offer these services to help you prolong the life of your tires.

Balancing
If you feel excessive vibration in the car, or wobbling of the steering wheel, your tires may be unbalanced. Dave & Pat Seydel Auto & Truck has the professional equipment and technicians to measure the balance of your vehicle's tires and make necessary corrections. Call us at 319-351-6805 if you have questions, or contact us so we can evaluate your tires.

Repairs
An incorrectly repaired tire could pose a safety hazard to you and your passengers. At Dave & Pat Seydel Auto & Truck, our tire experts will determine whether your tires are able to be repaired, or if they need to be replaced. If the tires are repairable, our certified technicians will make sure they are repaired correctly and get you back on the road.

Tire Rotation
Tire rotation is the practice of moving the wheels and tires of an automobile from one position to another, to ensure even tire wear, which extends the useful life of a set of tires. Rotation is important because each tire on a car carries a different amount of weight, making them wear at different rates. By rotating them, you basically even out those differences. Your owner's manual will tell you how often to rotate your tires, but as a rule of thumb, it should be done every 5,000 to 8,000 miles.

We Offer Most Major Brands of Tires
At Dave & Pat Seydel Auto & Truck, we understand that tires are an important part of your car. The quality of tires and material used on them highly affects the vehicle's performance. Their main purpose is to protect the wheel's rims and improve vehicle performance. For this reason, we only deal with brand name tires. Also, we offer fleet tire management services to ensure you are getting the best value, fuel economy, and life from your tires.

Once a need for new tires is determined, it is necessary to identify the best tires for your vehicle and driving demands. Look for tires that do well in tests for braking, handling, and resistance to hydroplaning. Winter traction should also be considered, if applicable. Let tread wear, ride comfort, noise, and rolling resistance be tiebreakers. Trust the tire experts at Dave & Pat Seydel Auto & Truck to help you choose the right tires for your vehicle.

We offer most major brands of tires. These are a few of our preferred brands.

reviewiconGreat Guys!
Iowa City, IA

Pat and Dave are the auto mechanics everyone wants: In addition to being great guys, they tell you exactly what the issues are, how much repairs would cost, whether the repair is necessary or something a driver can live with, and whether it's worth making repairs at all. I've been taking all our vehicles to them for 10 years and have always been satisfied. The location is also convenient if one works at the University of Downtown Iowa City, as it is a leisurely 15 minute walk away.
