How do you know if you need new tires?
  • Checking your tread depth frequently is important - ideally every 3000 miles. You can do this simply with a penny. Insert the penny into the tread groove, upside down, Lincoln facing you. If you are able to see all of Lincoln's head, you need new tires.
  • Checking tread depth provides the opportunity to plan ahead and budget for inevitable tire replacement. Remember to check if your current tire is under warranty before making a purchase. This step could help save you money.

Tire Maintenance / Taking Care of Your Investment:
  • It is recommended to rotate your tires every 6,000-8,000 miles. This helps equalize tread wear.
  • It's also important to check tire pressure once a month; more often during the winter, because as the temperature drops, so does the pressure in your tires. According to the EPA,* properly inflated tires are safer and more fuel efficient.
  • You can check tire inflation with a tire pressure gauge. The information with the correct tire pressure for your car is located on a sticker in the driver's side doorjamb or in the glove box.
