For superior tire service, head to Zimbrick Hyundai in Madison, Wisconsin.

When do tires need to be replaced?

On average, tires should be changed every five years, but it's more dependent on your driving habits. To determine if your vehicle's tires need to be changed, perform regular checks of the tread wear indicator, or ask a professional.

When should tires be rotated?

The way that cars are designed has every tire carrying a different amount of weight. Because of this, it is important to have your tires rotated every 5,000 to 8,000 miles on average to even out wear.

If your tires appear to have abnormal wear before the five year mark, or you're unsure if it's time for a rotation, consult a professional technician.

What wears out car tire tread?

Car tire tread helps your vehicle keep its grip on the road, so when it wears down it may be time for a replacement or rotation. Three things that increase tread wear are:

  • Overinflated tires
  • Underinflated tires
  • Misalignment

Remember to routinely check both the air pressure and tread wear indicators in order to maintain optimal tire performance.

How do I know if my tires need air?

Tire air pressure is measured in pounds per square inch (PSI). To measure your tire's PSI, use an air pressure gauge.

Check your owner's manual for your car's recommended tire pressure. If the number is lower than what is recommended, it's time to add air.

  • Engine is slow to start
  • Other electrical components (i.e. windows, windshield wipers, etc.) do not function properly
  • Illuminated dashboard battery warning light
  • It's been a few years since you last had the battery changed

Does the air pressure of my tires impact gas mileage?

Yes - whether your tires are overinflated or underinflated, it can impact the fuel efficiency of your vehicle. Performing regular air pressure checks will help improve gas mileage in the long run.
