Q - I’ve heard that when replacing two tires (when I don’t have different size tires on the front and rear), the new tires need to go on the back, can you share why?

A - Putting the new tires on the rear (when there isn’t a staggered tire size fitment), is the industry standard to help increase driver safety and to help prevent oversteer in wet conditions. Tires with deeper tread are more resistant to hydroplaning and this is why we place them on the rear. Please view these resources to learn more:

Q - How much does it cost to replace a TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) Stem?

A - For most vehicles, the TPMS Stem cost $43.99 each (as of 1/7/2022) with the TPMS Reset Procedure (with the onboard computer) at $35 (this charge is the same whether 1 TPMS Stem or all 4 TPMS stems are replaced)

Q - How long do TPMS Stem Batteries Last?  (Thus, when is it become more likley I should replace the TPMS Stems?

A - TPMS Stems have batteries, but since they are sealed units, the batteries cannot be replaced.  Thus, when the batteries fail, the TPMS Stem needs to replaced.  We are seeing, that on average, TPMS stems are lasting 6 to 8 years. 

Q - If my vehicle comes O.E. (Original Equipment - from the manufacturer) with Run Flat Tires, do I need to put Run Flat Tires back on my vehicle when my tires need replaced?

A - At Lex Brodie’s, we have made it our policy to replace O.E. Run Flat Tires only with new Run Flat tires. Many vehicles that come from the factory with Run Flat tires are not equipped with a spare tire. Vehicles engineered with Run Flat Tires are less likely to leave you stranded on the road with a flat tire.  

Q - I’ve heard I may need to replace all 4 tires for my AWD vehicle, is that true?

A - It is best to refer to your owner’s manual to verify the requirements for you vehicle, as most AWD Vehicles will have specific tire replacement recommendations. Please also refer to our LBU (Lex Brodie’s University) resource: I NEED TO DO WHAT? - A 4WD TIRE BUYING GUIDE

Q - Is it ok to change the Speed Rating when replacing my tires?

A - A tire's Speed Rating indicates how fast you can drive, at sustained speeds, without the tire failing.  Vehicles are engineered with tires to maximize that vehicle's handling, braking, and driving characteristics. Deviating from the O.E. Speed Rating can adversely affect driving characteristics. Please also refer to Lex Brodie’s Speed Rating Brochure: Click here

Wonderful, quick service. My low tire pressure light came on while driving to work downtown. I was able to make an appointment to drop off my car at lunch and picked it up after work. No charge for checking my tires and the employees were extremely friendly and efficient even though they were busy.

Have been going to Lex Brodie's for tire and alignment work for over 40 years and they have been outstanding. Sure, I've experienced a few "quirks" with them, but that also happens with any other best other shops taking care of them in good order.
