However, there are a few tell-tale signs that indicate when something is wrong with your tire. Dive in with us as we uncover how to properly monitor your tires, as well as the benefits of trusting our Toyota service center for all of your auto repair needs.
Your Tires May Be Telling You Something
At Spitzer Toyota, our service center technicians are specialized in not only helping you choose the right tires for your vehicle but also specialize in inspecting your tires for potential red flags. However, we know that issues may quietly arise in between service intervals that you may not notice. Here are some tell-tale signs that its time to bring your vehicle into our Toyota service center for an inspection:
- Tread is at the Wear Indicator Bar – your tires have little bars incorporated in their tread pattern that gives you a clear indication of when its time to replace your tires. When the tread of your tires has worn down to a point where they can now make contact with the road, its time to bring your vehicle into our Toyota Service Center for an inspection.
- Tire Damage – if you see bubbles in the sidewalls of your tires; cuts, slashes, or uneven tire wear, its time to bring your vehicle into our Toyota Service Center so that we can take a look and see whats going on.
- Aging Tires – If your tires still have a decent amount of tread left, that doesn’t mean they’re in the clear. Check the DOT number on the side of your tires and ensure they haven’t aged beyond what is considered safe. Tires more than six years old are recommended to be replaced.
