TIRES

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 antilock 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.


Repairs
An incorrectly repaired tire could pose a safety hazard to you and your passengers. At Jimmy's Automotive Center, 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.

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 Jimmy's Automotive Center.

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.

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.

Balancing
If you feel excessive vibration in the car, or wobbling of the steering wheel, your tires may be unbalanced. Jimmy's Automotive Center has the professional equipment and technicians to measure the balance of your vehicle's tires and make necessary corrections. Call us at 828-658-3030 if you have questions, or contact us so we can evaluate your tires.

We Offer Most Major Brands of Tires
At Jimmy's Automotive Center, 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 Jimmy's Automotive Center to help you choose the right tires for your vehicle.

    TJ and Jimmy's Automotive are fantastic! TJ is always very helpful when I take our 12 year old van in for service. On my last visit he went above and beyond and I am extremely grateful. Thank you, TJ, and go SC State Bulldogs!


  • -Erin O.

    I continue to be blown away by the service, prices, and positive demeanor of the employees at Jimmy's. This is the first time I have EVER written a review about anything and its because I feel obligated to write about quality like this. Mom & Pop shops and common human courtesy are a thing of the past in Corporate America, so experiences like I continue to have at Jimmy's are very refreshing to me! Go see for yourself! You won't be disappointed.


  • -Lynn C.

    My husband and I have been customers of Jimmy's Automotive since we moved to Weaverville. They run a well oiled business (pun intended). They are so professional. They treat me as a woman with respect and never look down on me for all my crazy questions! They have even helped us with printing off invoices for our taxes!! TJ is amazing! You should take all your auto troubles to Jimmy's!!


  • -Lisa G.

    Our family has been coming to Jimmy's for years. We have three vehicles and have taken them all to Jimmy's for maintenance and repairs. TJ and Brian are so helpful & friendly. They go out of their way to accommodate! We have had some major repairs done over the years but when these guys are done the problem is fixed-they really know what they are doing! I highly recommend the mechanics at Jimmy's.


  • -Wanda G.

    ...Waiting room is CLEAN; internet service is available, so I could check email and facebook while I waited and Brian was very friendly and helpful as I checked out. I am so GLAD and RELIEVED to have them near by for help and service!


  • -Teri N.

    Having recently moved to NC, and having had the most wonderful mechanic for over the past 20 years in my old hometown, my husband and I wanted to find a garage we could trust. We seem to have found it at Jimmy's! They are AAA approved and came with lots of recommendations from others we have met. We have had to take two of our cars there for repairs within the last couple weeks, and we found TJ to be very friendly and helpful. Before any work was done, he explained the cars' issues and what the cost would entail (which was also very reasonable). He talked with us as if we were long time customers, and with a respect that indicated he appreciated our business. Both of our cars turned out to be emergency situations, and Jimmy's was able to fit us in and get the work done asap. Wonderful garage! Highly recommended!


  • -Julianne A.

    I love this shop because they are honest. I had engine mounts replaced a bit over a year ago and the car was starting to shake again. They told me the warranty had expired for the mounts, but that mounts should last longer than a year and they picked up the cost of parts and labor to put 3 new ones in. I know nothing about cars and I didn't ask them to pay for it. They offered because they take pride in their work, want to do right by people, and have a business model based on providing exceptional, honorable service. They have been keeping my 2005 Mazda 3 road worthy for three years now and I couldn't be happier.


  • -JD G.

    ...Great service, professional in every sense yet very personable. When I came in for the service, I mentioned I was starving and hadn't eaten breakfast and I was told about a local diner. They didn't have to tell me, but they genuinely care about their customers. Give them the opportunity to earn your trust and your business. You won't regret it!


  • -Carolyn S.

    In the 15 years that Jimmy has serviced my cars, I have had not one complaint. They are always honest as to what is needed and discuss the cost before they do any extensive repairs. I really appreciate their professionalism. I recommend them highly!!!


  • -Dennis M.

    Got inspected in no time, without an appointment. Great shop.


  • -Anonymous

    I've taken a few vehicles here for alignment. Done correctly and on time.


  • -George Z.

    Brian & T.J. answered all my questions and where helpful in explaining what needed to be done on my Saturn. Both T.J. and Brian now and in the past explained what need to be done. I have confidence in your technicians to resolve problems with my car. We have confidence in your auto center to repair put us back on the road with a safe car for our family. From beginning to end thank you for your quality service.


  • -Brad F.

    I moved here from Southeastern PA almost three years ago. A neighbor recommended Jimmy's to me when I need a car inspection. Best advice I have gotten since moving here. Very easy to work with, honest and good service too.


  • -George K.

    It was found that I needed more work. I was given a ride home and picked up later that day.


  • -Happy Camper

    We have been very satisfied with the service and care Jimmy's has given us. We have been going to them for about three years and have had two cars serviced consistently over that time. We appreciate that they only do the work that is necessary. They have provided loaner cars for us as needed too.


  • -Dan C.

    I have been going to Jimmy's for the last four years. I am always very satisfied with the professional work and their customer service is exceptional.


  • -Bryan Y.

    Very friendly and fast service. I highly recommend them if you need auto repair in Asheville


  • -Jim S.

    I'm a new loyal customer - Best auto repair experience since moving to Asheville 8 years ago. My 2004 GMC Envoy needed new A/C compressor assembly. Expensive item, but I trusted Brian's knowledge and "no pressure" style explaining my options. In fact, I found the entire staff to be professional, friendly and proud of their excellent reputation - Keep up the good work, guys!


  • -Toni

    Nice people and efficient service. I had expensive repairs, but they made it as painless as possible. I was unable to get estimates from other shops, so I don't know if their prices are comparable to other shops or not. But they took the stress out of my experience and that is valuable. The loaner car was a tremendous help. I wasn't inconvenienced while waiting for repairs. They only did repairs I authorized but did give me a list of repairs I may need later.


  • -Bud S.

    A first class operation in all respects. They go out of their way to be helpful in providing needed information. The quality of their work has always been 4-5 stars.
