STARKVILLE, Miss. – (WCBI) AAA Auto Club estimates 36.1 million Americans will travel 50 miles or more from home. Of those traveling for Memorial Day, 31.8 million will go by automobile.

Before you hit the road for the long holiday weekend, you might want to make sure you vehicle is in top shape.

A hometown business with family roots. Crews at R&M Tires in Starkville have been keeping cars in line for more than 25-years. What began as his father’s business is now in the hands of Jim McReynolds. Jim says a little bit of maintenance can keep your vehicle rolling much longer.

“I recommend having your tires rotated every 5,000 miles. If you have your oil changed every 3,000, then do it every other oil change. If you buy tires from us, you get your tires rotated for free,” says McReynolds.

When the crew member rotates your tires, they are also looking for damage to the rubber. Whether it be a nail that has gone undetected or general wear, they fully inspect every tire.

Its important that you share any changes you might have noticed. Jim can help you pinpoint the problem.

” If its vibrating, it could be out of line or your tires may need to be balanced.”

Several thousand miles later, you will eventually have to replace your tires. Bridgestone, Michelin, BF Goodrich– the number of brands on the market have expanded. Jim is here to help you pick the perfect model and tread for your car, truck or suv.

Whether you are in the market for new tires, rotation, balance, or an oil change, R&M Tires on Hwy. 12 in Starkville is a one stop shop for all your vehicles needs.
