When Does Your Toyota Need Tire Service?

Keeping a regular schedule for the tire maintenance of your car is important. There are some procedures that have easy to remember rules to follow concerning when to take your Toyota in for service.

First, the average lifespan of your tires is five years. If your tires are worn out in five years, it is a good idea to replace them. It should also be noted that tires should not be used for more than 10 years. If you don't have regular maintenance, you may find that you need new tires much more often than every five years.

Tire rotation, balancing and alignment are procedures that should be done at least once a year. With this proper maintenance, you can ensure that your car runs smoothly for years to come while also keeping you and your passengers safe. Under serviced tires are susceptible to risks such as a blowout.

Toyota Tire Maintenance, EvansvilleRegular rotation evens out the wear of your tires. While it's a good idea to get it done once a year, another recommendation is that it should be performed every 6,000 to 8,000 miles, or every six to eight months. Evening out the wear of your tire is important so that you can replace all four tires at the same time.

Balancing and alignment should be done every 3,000 to 6,000 miles, or every three to six months. These procedures make sure that your tires are centered. Having centered tires prevents drifting and swaying while driving.

One practice you can perform yourself, and something that you should do much more often than once a year, is checking the air pressure of your tire. Most cars suffer from underinflated tires, which can damage your car and decrease the fuel efficiency. It is important to keep an eye on the air in your tires, and if they get exceedingly low, an orange notification light will appear on your dashboard. Important times to check air pressure are after a sudden change in the weather and before a long trip.

Though it is vital to follow a regular service schedule, it is also important to keep an eye out for irregularities between appointments in Evansville. Some irregularities include:

  • Excess vibration while driving on the highway
  • Bulging tires or bulging sidewall
  • Visible tread wear indicator
  • Scratches in the sidewall

Pay attention to your car, and if you notice any unusual symptoms, be sure to bring it into Kenny Kent Toyota for a thorough check up. Regular maintenance can also act as an indicator of when to replace tires.
