Tire Service Near Riverbank, CA
Let Modesto Toyota Inspect Your Tires Today!
The best way to ensure your vehicle is running smoothly is to make sure your tires are in the best possible condition. If you have noticed the tread on your tires is starting to wear, or you feel they need to be rotated, bring your vehicle in for tire service near Riverbank, CA, at Modesto Toyota.
Before you give us a call, take the time to walk around your vehicle and examine your tires. Does the air pressure seem low? Does the tread look to be worn out? If you notice any issues, it might be time to schedule an appointment for a new set of tires, or for your tires to be rotated.
One of the tire services we provide here at Modesto Toyota is tire rotation, which has many benefits to your vehicle. For starters, it extends the tire tread life. Depending on terrain, temperature, and your driving habits, tires tend to wear unevenly. Similarly, front-wheel drive vehicles will have front tires that experience more wear and tear because they have the task of driving your vehicle, as well as steering it. When you switch out the front tires with the back tires frequently, this helps to spread out the wear.
Frequent tire rotation also helps in regards to your vehicles performance, riding comfort, and stability. This loss of friction can make it harder to stop on wet roads, gripping in the snow, loss of balance, and event front-end misalignment. The last thing you want is loss of traction when you’re exploring Yosemite National Park. When you rotate your tires frequently, you’ll also increase gas mileage, since the vehicle pull and road friction are alleviated, and traction and stability are increased.
If you have accidentally nicked a curb, or ran over a sharp object and your tire has blown out, schedule a tire service near Riverbank, CA, at Modesto Toyota. Also, if you noticed you’re refilling the same tire every few weeks, it could mean there is a puncture you’re not able to see, which we can help with as well. To fix any of these issues, swing by our service department, or you can conveniently schedule a service appointment online.
If you’re still unsure if your tires need maintenance, there’s an easy test you can do at home – all you need it a penny. Simply place a penny between two tread ribs on your tire, and turn the penny so that Lincoln’s head points down into the tread. If the top of Lincoln’s head disappears between the two ribs, your tires still have enough tread, and do not need to be replaced. If you can see his entire head, it’s time to make an appointment for new tires.
