TRUCK TIRES FAQ
Q: Why is tire rotation so important?
A: Each of your tires performs a different task in your day to day driving. This causes each tire to wear a little different than the others. When you regularly rotate your tires it allows them to wear evenly, maximizing tire life and allowing your tires to be replaced in sets of four which gives you the best vehicle performance.
Q: I've heard that the first tire rotation on brand new tires is the most important. Is that correct?
A: Irregular tread wear happens fastest when tires are new with full tread depth, this makes the first tire rotation the most important one.
Q: Is correct tire pressure very important?
A: Improperly inflated tires are one of the biggest reasons for tire failure. Proper tire pressure helps a tire have optimum tread contact with the road, which improves traction and braking and reduces tire wear, this is even more important when you're hauling cargo or towing. Tire with low air pressure generates heat, which is a tire's worst enemy, so maintaining the right amount of air keeps temperatures where they should be.
Q: How often should I check my tire pressure?
A: Most newer vehicles have a tire pressure monitoring system that will let you know if you have one or more tires with the wrong tire pressure. If your vehicle doesn't have this system checking your tire pressure once a month is a good idea. Be sure the tires are cold (not driven for three hours or driven less than one mile), and don't forget to check your spare tire. Remember that tires can lose air pressure in cold weather unless you have Nitrogen in your tires.
Q: I have heard that Nitrogen is good to have in my tires. Who is this?
A: Weld County Garage Buick GMC can perform a service where the normal air is removed from you tires and tuned into Nitrogen. This Nitrogen is then put back into your tires at the correct inflation. Nitrogen does not expand and contract nearly as much as normal air so you will not have fluctuation in your tires during extreme heat and cold. Not only is the great for your tires but it also keeps you "low tire" warning from coming on during cold spells.
Q: How can I know if it's time to get new tires?
A: The easiest way to know is by looking at your tires to see if the war indicator cars are showing. They look like narrow strips of smooth rubber across the tread and appear when it's time to replace your tires. If you see three or more tread wear indicators around the tire it is time to replace them. If you haven't checked your tires in a long time they may be beyond this point. If you see metal spikes, called cords, poking out from your tires they are dangerous to drive on and should be replaced immediately. The easiest task is to set a time to bring your vehicle into Weld County Garage Buick GMC and we will gladly check your tires while you wait.
