Erie Potholes Killing Your Rims?

Typical Erie Weather – Sunny and warm in January. Freeze, Thaw, Freeze, Thaw. 75 degrees in March. Snow in mid-April. Perfect weather for pot holes; perfect road conditions for bent rims. We joke about having “Pot Hole Season” here in Erie, but the expense and safety risks associated with bent rims are no laughing matter.

Bent rims cause excessive tire wear and vibration and steering and handling issues leading to unsafe travel conditions for you and your family! Bent rims keep tires from sealing correctly – leading to tire pressure issues. Low tire pressure is an often unnoticed issue that will cause major tire wear and unsafe handling conditions. More than 50% of the tires that we dismount from a damaged rim have internal damage, rendering them unsafe.

New Tire Rims are Expensive!

Save hundreds of dollars with Dias Spring Service’s rim repair service. New tire rims for a family sedan or SUV have an average cost of $600-$700. If you have a BMW, Volvo or Mercedes, costs can be upwards of $1,000! And those prices are PER RIM. At Dias Spring Service, we’ve been repairing bent and broken rims since 1948! We’re experts at repairing your rims and getting you back on the road – safely and in a timely manner – and in most cases, under $100!
