My car just went dead wile I was driving, what could have happened?

This could be many things and we would have to inspect your car to be sure, but this would sound like a bad alternator. If the alternator is not charging the battery then as you drive your car is drawing down the energy from the battery untill there is not enough left to keep the engine running.

Is it OK to mix tire brands on my car as long as I keep the same size?

The size is important, but you need to keep the same tire and tread design on the same axle, in other words the tires can be different front to back but need to be the same side to side.  The best thing is to have all the tires the same brand and tread design front and rear. What happens is each tread design reacts differently in water or any road conditions to keep the car stable you want each tire reacting the same.

Do I need to have the brake rotors resurfaced when I have my brakes replaced?

The answer to this question is yes you should, now if you don’t will the brakes still work yes again, they will work, not as well as they would if you resurface the rotors, as well you may end up with a brake pulsation or noise. If you want your brakes to work at 100% and who wouldn’t, get the rotors resurfaced or replaced as necessary when do brakes.

Why would my car ride smooth until I reach 65 mph, then start shaking?

Many times people confuse this problem with an alignment issue, actually the problem will be a bad tire or a tire balance most of the time. Best course of action is get your car in to your service center for a tire and ride inspection they should be able to determine the problem quickly.

Why do my tires wear more in the center then on the edges?

Each car as well as each different tire has a proper air pressure it should be operated at, this pressure is stated on the tire itself as well as on the driver’s door post of your car. If the tire is over inflated the center gets harder than the sides of the tread thus the tire wears more in the center likewise if the tire is under inflated the center gets soft and the edges of the tire will wear more. Your tire pressure needs to be checked once a month to keep them at the proper inflation.

My cars brake peddle is hard to push down and the brakes don’t work.

This is usually a problem with power brake booster, there are two common types of boosters vacuum operated or fluid operated if the booster fails or the vacuum or fluid that operate the booster fail the brake pedal will be very hard to push down, almost impossible to push. You will need to have the car towed in for service, many times this will be a one day repair.
