Is It Time for Tire Service In Orlando?

Volkswagen Tire MaintenaceThere are several good rules of thumb when it comes to tire service and replacement. It is recommended that tires be rotated every six to eight months, or 6,000 to 8,000 miles. This regular tire rotation in Orlando will even out the wear on each tire, so that one doesn't need replacing before the others. Tires need to be balanced about every three to six months and aligned once a year. This practice will make sure your wheels are straight and return to center when the steering wheel is released.

For replacement, tires are often used for around five years, but should not be used for more than 10 years. A good test to tell whether it's time for a replacement is the Penny Test. By placing a penny with Lincoln's head down into the tread of the tire, you can determine if the tread is at an unsafe level by checking to see whether Lincoln's head is uncovered. If it's uncovered, it means that your tread is less that 2/32 of an inch and that it may be time for a replacement.

There are several other symptoms that indicate when it may be time for tire repair service in Orlando:

  • Vibration of the steering wheel when driving at highway speeds
  • Bulges in your tires
  • Scratches and markings on the sides of your tires
  • Visible wear indicator bars
