If you’re not sure if you need maintenance on your tires, there are a few things you can do from home. First, take a moment to walk around your vehicle to inspect your tires. Do they seem low? Do they seem worn? Do they have any foreign objects stuck inside that have punctured them? If you notice any of these issues, it’s time to give us a call for a new set of tires.
You can also preform the penny test to see if the tread on your tires is lower than what the U.S Department of Transportation recommends. Do so by finding a penny, and placing it between the tread ribs of your tires. Turn this penny so that Lincoln’s head points down into the tread. If part of his head disappears between the tread, your tires meet the tread standard. But, if you can see Lincoln’s entire head, it’s time to replace your tires.
Not having enough tread on your tires can be very dangerous, as you will experience a loss of friction when driving in the rain and snow, as well as loss of balance and front-end misalignment. Tires will low tread are also more likely to puncture on a piece of broken glass or a nail, since there is thinner material to penetrate to puncture the tire.

Besides completely replacing your tires, another tire service we offer is tire rotation. Terrain, temperature, and your driving habits tend to wear unevenly on your tires, and performing periodic tire rotation helps balance this wear on your tires. Pattern wear can be avoided by moving your front tires to the back of your vehicle, and vice versa. You should definitely get your tires rotated if you drive a front-wheel drive vehicle, as this increases the burden of your front tires. Tire rotation not only increases your vehicle’s performance, as it can better grip wet roads, but having your tire wear spread evenly also increases your gas mileage.
