A Lost ArtBy Jerry Cohen
Question: Have you ever heard of the term “tire truing?”
Some of you have and I bet most of you did not know
that it is still done today. Well it is, but very few people
have the skill and the equipment to do it.
The word artisan is overused today, but I can’t think of
another term to describe what Roger Campbell does with
his out of production equipment to an out of round tire. Maybe the proper term would be tradesman.
A few years ago I had a problem with out of round tires.
Luckily, I found Roger’s Tire Truing at 904 Valleydale
Road in Charlotte. You can go to him or he has a mobile
tire truing unit, he also does race car tires at his location
utilizing a different piece of equipment.
Tire truing is shaving tissue thin layers off of the out of
round portion or raised part of your tire tread until they
are truly round for a smooth ride. Not only does it ride
smoother, but the round tire wears longer. It is hard to
believe that you will have any tread left when you see
the rubber coming off . After Roger is done it is a good
idea to have your tires balanced for that glass smooth
Below is Roger applying his trade.

Tires are not naturally round, instead they are slightly oval or egg shaped. The inability to produce perfectly rounded rubber tires creates the need for weights to balance tires and wheels. Tire truing does not eliminate tire weights; instead it eliminates the oval on the tire. The process of truing will provide a much smoother ride, longer lasting tires, better tire wear, and more efficient fuel mileage. You will save gas by having your tires trued.

Tires and wheels that are unbalanced damage the vehicle and provide an uncomfortable ride. A balanced tire and wheel will save on gas, tire wear and costly damage to some of the steering components of a vehicle. Balanced tires and wheels have an even wear and require replacement less frequently. Wheels still need to be rotated in order to maximize the life of tires. Roger’s Tire Truing offers complete tire rotation and balancing.
Proper alignment is a crucial factor in the overall health of a vehicle. Improper alignment will destroy the life of tires, steering components and impact the life of a car, truck, van or trailer. Roger’s tire truing offers wheel alignment and truing for most vehicles. This will improve the life of the tires, wheels and vehicle. Roger’s mobile services can come to your home or office to perform the alignment service. Service charges apply to mobile repairs.
Trailers take tons of abuse during the work day. Often times, the axle can become impacted and damaged, causing it to become slightly bent and irregular. Roger’s tire truing has the experience and equipment to straightening axles, thus returning them to proper standards. Bent or out of alignment axles, will greatly reduce the life of tires. We work directly with many of the Race Teams, straightening the axles on the car haulers and trailers.
