Is It Time for New Tires?

When it comes to your vehicle’s efficiency and safety, tires play a significant role. Because of that, it’s important to replace your tires when the time comes. At our dealership, we aim to help our customers determine when that time is, and then provide them with the tools necessary to get new tires.

When Is It Time to Replace Your Tires?

Tread wear can be the best way to determine if it’s time for a change. We recommend using the penny test. We’re sure it’s something many of our drivers are familiar with. Place a penny head-first into a few tread grooves on each tire. If you can see the top of Abe’s head, it’s probably time to visit our dealership and get a new set of tires.

Tread is what helps keep your vehicle responsive, especially in rain and snow. If your tread is low, your vehicle may not stop quickly or respond to your maneuvers. The last thing you want is to lose control of your vehicle. Replacing tires when the tread runs low can help prevent that.

An additional factor is age and mileage. While your tires may have tread, exposure to harsh conditions can cause some extreme wear. In addition, most tire manufacturers recommend replacing tires every six years, regardless of wear. You’ll likely need new tires before that time though.

Find the Tires You Needs

If it’s time to replace your tires, schedule a service appointment with us. Our technicians will listen to your automotive needs and help you determine the right tires for the job. Plus, when you schedule your service, you can get your tires replaced on your schedule, not ours.
