When Should I Replace My Tires?

Great question! For the most part, there are three ways to determine if your car needs a tire replacement:

  • Tread depth
  • Your car's mileage
  • The tire's manufacture date

Let's start with tread depth that we'll discuss more in depth later. The tread depth of your tires should have no less than 4/32-inch of tread depth left to operate safely. If the tread depth is at 4/32-inch or less, it's time to replace your tires.

In addition, your car's mileage can be a solid indicator that you need a tire replacement. While the recommended mileage to have your tires replaced can vary depending on the make and model of your vehicle, it's best to switch out your old tires once you reach between 25,000 to 50,000 miles. Check your owner's manual for more specific information on this!



Finally, the manufacture date of your automobile can give you a general idea of how long your tires have been on the road. Most service technicians suggest changing your tires every six years or so. So, if you've been driving your vehicle for close to-or more than-six years, call our tire center team to schedule a tire replacement!

What Are the Benefits of Tire Rotations?

We're glad you asked! First, by routinely rotating your tires, the amount of wear each tire endures-especially for front-wheel drive vehicles-will be minimized.

As a result, you'll maximize the tread depth and lifespan of your tires. Of course, this is only one of the many benefits associated with regular tire rotations. The other positives of having this service done are:

  • Better handling: Due to the fact that regularly rotated tires wear more evenly, you'll likely experience smoother handling and less shaking while on the road.
  • Enhanced safety: With the right amount of tire tread, your vehicle can quickly come to stops and effectively handle slippery conditions. That way, you'll keep both yourself and other drivers safe.
  • Improved gas mileage: Without the additional friction and pull caused by worn-down tire tread, your car can operate at its highest level of performance. That way, you can potentially conserve more fuel as you drive.

How Do I Check Tire Tread?

There are several ways to check your tire tread. The most common method is the Penny Test. There are just a few simple steps you can take to complete this quick test at home:

  • Locate a penny-don't forget to check underneath your couch!
  • Insert the penny into your tire's tread groove with Lincoln's head facing down.
  • If the top of Lincoln's head is blocked by your tire tread, you have sufficient tire tread.
  • If all of Lincoln's head is visible, you'll need to contact our service center for a tire replacement.

It's that simple! If you have any trouble performing the Penny Test, the tire professionals at our dealership are more than happy to tell you if your vehicle needs a new set of tires.
