The technicians at Space Coast Tire have years of experience working on standard 4-wheel drive (4x4) vehicles as well as all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicles. AWD is a full-time 4-wheel-drive system (all four wheels receive torque from the engine simultaneously) that employs a center differential that allows each tire to rotate at different speeds.
We understand the special needs of these vehicles. These are some of the services we offer.
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 Space Coast Tire.
The differential transfers the engine power to the wheels. One important function of the differential is to pass on power to the wheels while allowing them to rotate at different speeds - thus the name differential. When turning, the outer wheels travel a larger distance than the inner wheels do (also the front wheels travel a longer distance than the rear wheels). This means that all four wheels travel at different speeds during a turn and this is where the differential comes in to help. To make sure your vehicle's differentials are working properly, have them checked regularly. Contact Space Coast Tire today for differentials examination and servicing.
A driveline is a part of your motor vehicle that connects the engine and the transmission to the wheel axles. The driveline consists of the parts of the powertrain less the engine and transmission. Failure of the driveline means that the car would not move since energy cannot be transmitted from the engine to the wheel axles. Therefore, make sure that your car's driveline is regularly inspected and serviced. And, at Space Coast Tire, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.
Hubs, Seals, Studs, & Nuts
A wheel hub motor, also referred to as a wheel motor, is an electric motor incorporated into the wheel hub and drives it directly. You can have a safer and smoother ride today by replacing your warped and worn out wheel hubs. Let Space Coast Tire replace your worn out hubs today.
Properly working seals provide oil and grease sealing - offering enhanced performance in a wide range of temperatures and environments. Worn out or warped seals allow external contaminants to enter the bearing unit or let lubricant escape from the unit. This ultimately leads to premature failure of the bearing unit. To keep out contamination and retain lubricant in the bearings, have the seals replaced with new ones. To have the seals replaced by experts, contact or visit Space Coast Tire today.
Studs are the threaded fasteners that hold on the wheels of your truck. The wheel studs are permanently mounted on the wheel hub through the brake disk or brake drum. To secure the wheel, nuts (lug nuts) are fastened over the stud. Stripped wheel studs can be quite dangerous. Damaged wheel studs should be replaced with new ones immediately. To have your truck's wheel studs replaced with high quality ones, call 321-639-4008 or visit Space Coast Tire today.
A wheel nut or lug nut is a fastener for securing a wheel on the hub. A set of lug nuts are used to secure a wheel to the threaded wheel studs (which are fixed to a wheel hub). Worn out nuts means one thing - the wheel is not fixed securely on the vehicle which puts the vehicle at the risk of rolling over. To have your truck's wheels securely fastened to the hub, contact or visit Space Coast Tire in Rockledge, FL 32955 today.
A transfer case is a part of a four wheel drive system found in four wheel drive and all wheel drive vehicles. The transfer case receives power from the transmission and sends it to both the front and rear axles. This can be done with a set of gears, but the majority of transfer cases manufactured today are chain driven. The transfer case is connected to the transmission and also to the front and rear axles by means of drive shafts. Trust the automotive experts at Space Coast Tire for all your transmission repairs.
Transmission repair is not something to take lightly. The transmission is connected to key parts of your vehicle and needs to be working properly for your safety. Transmission services include replacing filters and draining fluids to prevent transmission damage. Typical transmission issues that may lead to repair may include shifting issues, slipping, stalling, fluid leaking, and the service light turning on. If you are concerned that you may need transmission repair, don't hesitate to schedule an appointment at Space Coast Tire today.
Wheel bearings are found inside of wheels, allowing the wheels to spin freely, and are connected to the brake system. They can become worn over time, causing a vibrating suspension and noisy rubbing as the car is driven. If they break completely, the vehicle will become very difficult to control and unsafe to drive. Replacement interval for wheel bearings varies greatly, but they should be checked for leaks and wear periodically. Space Coast Tire can make sure that your bearings are in good shape and let you know if they need replacement.
Very fair prices, small business :)
I had a nail in my tire and they were closing in two minutes and I called there. They stayed open to serve me and they were very nice. Reasonable with their prices. Thanks Space Coast.
Great people and tires!
GREAT!!!! Took my wife's car here after the Cocoa Hyundai dealership could not figure out what was wrong with it. Explained the problem with the guy in the office named Frank. He immediately said it sounds like a wheel bearing. They took care of it the same day. I will take my cars here from now on. Frank was honest and the price of the repair was very fair. I will recommend them to everyone who lives in the Brevard area. This is not a "Jiffy Lube" shop. They know what they are doing.
My family has used Space Coast Tires for years. I went to see them and Frank and the staff took fantastic care of my car! I highly recommend them! It's easy to find that trustworthy mechanic that does fantastic work as long as you look in the right spot! Thanks.
Brakes, alignment, front ends and more. These guys are awesome.
Excellent excellent place to take your car.
This place is awesome. Called in for a quote on a set of tires. Exact $ amount quoted was the exact amount paid and beat all the big name chains. Seriously!!! Time estimate was right on time as well. They were busy as all get out and still impressed the hell out of me. I'm definitely taking my business here from now on.
I have been using Space Coast Tire to get my car serviced and repaired since moving to Florida in 2004. They do excellent work, their prices are fair and I highly recommend them.
Great, friendly people. Great prices, and in and out with no hassles. Thanks for saving my day!!!
Honest friendly staff that helped me out in a pinch. Recommended highly.
My family has been coming here since I was a youngster and am 32 years old now. This is the only place my wife and I bring our cars to. Frank has always been there as long as I can remember and one of the few honest mechanics you will ever meet. If your local and need work done I would highly recommend it.
This place offers actual honest mechanics that will help you. This type of caring behavior is becoming foreign to the world. I will continue to use this place for all my cars. They treat you right, work really efficiently, and correct the problem the right way. No half measures here. Also the owner is a really good guy, helped me out multiple times. The best part has to be their pricing, it's almost like a common sense approach was taken here. This place is a hidden gem. If you are looking for honest, quality work at an affordable rate there is no other place, simple.
