At Space Coast Tire, we want our Rockledge customers to have the opportunity to feel comfortable in their vehicle. You can leave the repairs and services to our professionals, but please don't hesitate to ask us questions about why a service is needed or how it occurred. Give us a call at 321-639-4008, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Space Coast Tire offers.
Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement
Brake pad problems can usually be identified by squealing brakes. If your brake pads deteriorate completely, you'll hear a grinding metal-on-metal sound when braking, meaning that it's too late and you're ruining your rotors or drums! Those with knowledge of auto repair may be able to fix this at home, but you should always see an auto repair professional immediately if you have brake problems.
In a disc brake system, rotors are attached to your vehicle's wheels. When the brake pads grip the rotor, they bring both the rotor and wheels to a stop. However, the friction causes grooves and cracks to appear over time. Resurfacing brings the rotor back to a "like-new" condition, reducing squealing and wobbling. Space Coast Tire will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.
The brake caliper houses your brake pads and fits around the rotor like a clamp, pressing the pads against the rotor when you brake. A brake caliper problem could cause uneven braking, making your car slide forward when you brake. Uneven braking can also cause your vehicle to slide out of control in bad weather conditions, so contact Space Coast Tire as soon as possible.
A brake hose is a tube carrying pressurized brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. A crushed hose can cause a lagged or slow brake, and a leak in the hose can cause the brake, or the entire brake system, to fail. These don't need to be replaced often, but should be replaced at the first sign of cracking or wear.
Brake Fluid Flushes
Brake fluid will absorb water from the air over time, causing the brake system to become less effective and the fluid to become corrosive, possibly damaging the system. It is important to perform a brake fluid flush regularly to ensure that your vehicle is using fresh fluid. Talk to our technicians at Space Coast Tire about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.
Anti-Lock Brake System
Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) ensure that the wheels don't stop rotating during braking, preventing the car from skidding and offering greater control. If your ABS light comes on, visit Space Coast Tire where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.
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.
