The Best Tire Shop in Wilmington

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.

Alignments
Wheel alignment (or simply alignment) is standard car maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer's specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and the steering systems operate at their desired angles - this reduces tire wear. Alignment is a complicated process and not all mechanics get it right. To have experts handle your car's alignment, visit Lunar Low Automotive.

Balancing
If you feel excessive vibration in the car, or wobbling of the steering wheel, your tires may be unbalanced. Lunar Low Automotive has the professional equipment and technicians to measure the balance of your vehicle's tires and make necessary corrections. Call us at 910-769-0994 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 Lunar Low Automotive, 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 Inspection
It is recommended that tires, including the spare, be periodically inspected by a tire service professional during routine maintenance intervals such as oil changes and tire rotations. We will inspect the tire tread and sidewalls for irregular tread wear, cracking, scrapes, bulges, cuts, snags, foreign objects or other damage resulting from use. We will remove any stones, glass, foreign objects, etc. embedded in the tread to prevent further damage. Even minor damage can lead to further injury and eventual tire failure. Tires with excessive cracking on the tread or sidewall(s) should be removed from service. This is typically caused by under inflation, over loading, improper storage, and/or improper long-term parking.

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 Lunar Low Automotive, 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 Lunar Low Automotive 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.

What People Say About Us

Wilmington
  • Took a chance on these guys based on the good reviews they had on multiple sites. I'm so glad I did, they definitely deserve all the 5star reviews. First let me say my issue with my Jeep Wrangler (the dreaded death wobble) was going to be costly no matter where I took it, but Lunar Low was very upfront about what needed to be done and how much it was going to be, and honestly they came in at a lower of a price than I thought it was going to be. Wayne (one of the owners), was very thorough about why each thing needed to be replaced and what was more important if I couldn't do it all at once....I was so impressed I decided to buy my new tires there as well. If you have a Jeep or a 4x4 of any kind this is the place to take it. Lunar Low has earned all my future business

  • David and his team are fantastic. We took in a used vehicle we were considering purchasing for a pre-sale inspection and they quickly identified some key issues that saved us from making a big mistake and ultimately saved our wallets too! Very friendly, pleasant to work with, open and honest communication. I can't thank them enough!

  • We were vacationing in the area and discovered an issue with our Jeep Wrangler. My husband called this repair shop and they were able to get us in the next morning and took our vehicle first since we were on vacation and had no other vehicle. We needed brakes, rotors, and caliber replaced. We were nervous to take it to a place we didn't know but knew it wouldn't be safe to drive it home to Pennsylvania. They did a fantastic job. They called with details and cost before completing the work and called a day later to follow up to make sure everything was working right. It was of course, and the price was very reasonable. We recommended them to our family who is local to the area. We appreciate them taking care of our jeep.

  • Would recommend this place honest fast comfort little pricey but well worlth the service and warranty
