Is it Time to Replace your Tires?

Your luxury car needs regular maintenance and a lot of love. You know this and we know this. Aside from engine checks and changing motor oils, the tires of your import also need regular visual checks. The lifespan of your tires are dependent on tread wear, the kind of vehicle it is mounted on, and how the car is driven.

With the engine power of your import, it is not surprising that you floor it from time to time. While this is good for getting rid of carbon deposits, it can cause a lot of wear on your tires. Other factors such as exposure to the elements and their age also matter. The question is, when do you replace them? Automakers often indicate that tires need to be replaced when the car reaches 5,000 miles under normal conditions but there is still a need to check them or have them checked regularly for your own safety and the safety of your passengers.

Are the treads already worn? Taking a look at the tread wear regularly is a good idea because when the tires are worn, they no longer have the same grip on the road like before. For car owners who live in the hotter parts of the United States like Texas, it is also important to note that too much heat and exposure to the harmful rays of the sun can cause serious structural damage. This is why a visual examination is always a good idea whenever the tires are rotated. This is to make sure that they are still in good condition.

The age of the tires on your import also matter. Tires that are already 10 years old, it is suggested that you have them replaced regardless of wear. When it’s time to get them replaced, please don’t hesitate to call us.
