Tend to All Your Tire Needs at Alden Mazda

October 4th, 2018 by

Regular tire service can help you get as much life as possible out of your tires, but sadly, those rings of rubber won’t last forever. Worn-out tires can be a safety hazard, so it’s important to provide your tires with the care they need and replace them when necessary to help ensure a safer, smoother ride for you and your loved ones.

So, what do your tires need to succeed and how do you know when it’s time to make way for a new set?

Tire Service

Here at Alden Mazda, our service team is well-equipped with the tools and knowledge needed to perform top-notch tire service. Here are a few of the most common services your tires need to perform at their best:

  • Tire Rotation: Helps your tires wear evenly. Recommended every six months or whenever you get an oil change.
  • Wheel Alignment: Straightens out your wheels to help you avoid handling problems and excessive tire wear. We suggest scheduling regular checkups, especially if you often bump into curbs or hit potholes.
  • Tire Balancing: We encourage drivers to schedule tire balancing every 3,000 to 6,000 miles or so to avoid annoying vibrations and excessive tire wear.

How to Know When Your Tires Need Replacement or Service
The Penny Test is an easy way to gauge the condition of your tires. Simply slip a penny headfirst between your tire’s tread. If you can see the top of Lincoln’s head, it’s time for new tires.

If you notice excessive wear on your tires or you experience unusual vibrations from your steering wheel or seat, it could be a sign that your vehicle is in need of one or more of the services listed above.

Having the right type of tires for the season (such as all-season or winter tires) can help you get the most out of your ride. For example, winter tires are crafted with a special rubber compound and tire tread patterns to tackle snowy roads better than other types.
