Why Change and Rotate Tires

Tires naturally wear over time, some faster than others depending on your driving habits and location. Generally six years is the limit, after that point your tires will have worn out and aren't as safe or economical. A regular tire rotation every around every 7,500 miles will help your tire wear evenly, helping maintain both the longevity of your tires and your vehicle. Regular rotations will help enhance ride quality and road manners. 

Tire Types

Each class of vehicles, driving lifestyle, and season can require different tires based on their individual needs. While most tires are all-season tires designed for a smooth and quiet ride, reliable all-season traction, and a long lasting tread life, others are engineered for specific tasks. A few additional tire options include:

  • Touring tires: Designed to deliver a comfortable ride and reliable all-season traction, with the addition of more responsive handling.
  • Performance tires: The larger circumferential and lateral grooves are engineered with dense siping and silica enriched tread compounds for better grip regardless of the weather.
  • Summer tires: For better performance in wet and dry conditions, these tires are optimized for warm weather, and deliver grip and responsive handling in wet or dry conditions.
  • Winter tires: With a specific tread design, these tires are designed for the best possible traction in harsh winter conditions below 45 degrees.

    Underinflated tires are dangerous and cost you money. Due to the added resistance deflated tires produce, you’ll likely experience premature wear to your car and poor fuel economy.

    Check your tire pressure at least once a month, and remember to check pressure when the tires are cold. Air does expand with heat and checking when tires are hot will give an erroneous reading.

    Wheel alignment is crucial for your vehicle’s drivability and tire life, if you’ve noticed your car pulling to one side, poor steering responses, or unusual wear on your front tire, bring your car in immediately to see if your wheen have become unaligned.

    It only takes a fraction of an ounce of imbalance for a wheel and tire to set up a vibration. An out-of-balance wheel can produce multiple complications with wear on shocks, bearings and other suspension parts. If you’ve noticed any of these things, bring your car in for a check.

    Use a coin as a tread depth gauge; insert a penny into the tread, Lincoln’s head down. If the top of Abe’s head touches the tread face, your tires are at 2/32” depth, the minimum required by law, and it’s time for replacement. Now try the test again with a quarter. Does the tread reach Washington’s head? If so, your tread depth is 4/32”. One more time with the penny - if the tread reaches the Lincoln memorial, your tread depth is 6/32”.

    No vehicle has 50/50 weight distribution from front to rear, and the inertia of braking or cornering tends to transfer weight to the front tires, wearing them more quickly. That’s why it’s important to rotate tires regularly to ensure even wear.

    Lookout exposed steel belt material, uneven tire wear, scuffs or bulges “feathered” tread wear, and any deflation.
