Services That We Offer

At our Volvo Tire Center in Midlothian, VA, we have truly seen it all. Sometimes your Volvo vehicle needs something as simple as a tire pressure fix, and other times you need brand new Volvo tires for Volvo XC60 vehicles. No matter what is going on with your vehicle, we are here to assist you with fast, efficient, and knowledgeable service. Here are some things we can help you with:

Tire Alignment

There are many things that can cause your tires to become misaligned. And when you don't have a flat tire, it can be hard to tell when your tires are out of alignment. Have you recently hit the curb or run over a ditch by accident? Have you noticed that your steering wheel vibrates or your car favors one side when you brake now? If so, your tires may need to be realigned. Tire alignment ensures that all your tires are hitting the road the proper way. If you aren't sure, come visit our Tire Service Center. We will happily diagnose the issue for you.

Tire Pressure Issues

Have a flat tire? See that annoying tire pressure light illuminating on your dashboard? Time to come visit us! Whether it's a simple patch up, adding or decreasing pressure, or getting you new tires altogether, we will help you figure out what your Volvo vehicle needs. And unlike a quick-repair shop, we have the OEM tires that are specifically made to fit your Volvo vehicle model and trim. Should you need a replacement, make sure to ask about our service specials. We continually have coupons available to help you pay for different services and repairs. That way, you won't have to worry about saving money and risk receiving incorrect service at a repair shop that doesn't know the ins and outs of your Volvo vehicle.

Tire Tread, Wear, & Replacement

Sometimes, you don't even have to hit or run over something to run into tire issues. If you have had your tires for many years and notice that the tread is balding, it might be time for new tires. Driving with worn tires can pose a huge risk to you and your loved ones. Tires without proper tread impede your ability to stop properly.

Sometimes all it takes is a tire rotation. This is a service that should happen during routine maintenance like an oil change. By rotating your tires, you are evening out the wear between the tires by changing each one's position. This prevents a potential blowout or accident from happening.

If you have simply driven too many miles on your tires or they are worn down due to extreme weather, tire rotation may not be enough. The good news is that we have a great selection of tires at our Tire Service Center. We have Volvo tires for Volvo XC90 vehicles and every other model too. We will make sure your new tires are installed properly the first time so that you can drive safely and securely. And, if you don't want to come to our Tire Service Center, you can even shop Volvo tires online! If you need help selecting the best option to complement your driving habits, feel free to give us a call.

Frequently Asked Questions

What brand tires should I get for my Volvo vehicle?

Your Volvo vehicle can utilize tires from many major brands, including Continental®, Michelin®, Hankook®, Pirelli®, and more. When you visit our service department, our technicians will find the right match based on your car model, year, and trim. If you have road hazard coverage or the Volvo Tire and Wheel Protection plan, they can also apply it to eligible tire replacements to help you save money.

How do I reset the tire pressure warning in a Volvo vehicle?

The exact steps you need to take differ based on what Volvo model and year you have. This information should be in your owner's manual, but you can also talk to one of our service technicians. They can demonstrate how to adjust the tire pressure and the steps for calibrating the tire pressure monitoring system so that the warning light goes off.

How often should I change my tires?

Many factors affect when tires need replacement, such as the kinds of roads you travel over, whether you do any off-roading, how heavy of a load the tires are supporting, and weather conditions.

Maintenance also plays a crucial factor. You should get your tires rotated regularly, especially if you have front- or rear-wheel drive, since the front and back tires will get worn quicker in each situation, respectively. However, the general rule of thumb is that you should get new tires approximately every six years.

Visit our service department sooner if you notice a low tire tread of 3/23" or lower. Cracked tires or obvious and unusual tire vibration should also be taken as warning signs. Tires that are past their prime cannot provide adequate traction on the road, affecting your control and ability to come to a safe stop, so they need to be addressed ASAP.
