Signs That You Need New Tires
Keep in mind the signs that you need new tires, as this can save you from getting stuck on the side of the road. If you keep up with regular tire service, you may be able to ride on them for more than a typical 5-year period.
A tire pressure light that frequently turns on could signal more than the need for proper inflation. It may point toward the possibility that a tire harbors a leak that should be patched up. It also could suggest that you need to upgrade to a new set.
Tires that appear cracked and worn out usually indicate that your truck needs a fresh set. The treads can tell you a lot about your tires too. Shallow treads indicate that the tires should be updated, while deep ones mean they can hang around a little longer.
If you feel like your car wobbles or the ride seems uneven, it’s possible that you have not been having the tires rotated often enough. This should be done every six months and can be added to a regular service appointment for an oil change.

Whatever your vehicle needs, our service center can provide it. Our experienced service team handles all of the tire services your truck needs. We’ll check the inflation, rotate, align, or balance the tires, and recommend when it’s time to change them. The representatives in our tire department can help you find the ideal tires to match your budget and your lifestyle.
