While we all can’t be car gurus, it is important to know key things about our vehicles — what different dashboard lights mean, how to change a flat tire or the oil, etc. To help you out, Richard Karr Buick GMC proudly presents everything you need to know about tires.
When to rotate and replace them
You should rotate your tires every time you get your oil changed (so roughly every 5,000 miles) or at least every other time. When you bring your vehicle into Richard Karr Buick GMC for service, we’ll rotate your tires during your oil change.
When the tread depth wears away so much that your tires fail the penny test, it is time to replace your tires. You may also want new tires if you find yourself losing traction frequently in rain or snow when traveling north.
What kind of tires you need
For drivers in Texas, all-season tires generally work fine. If you will be spending extensive time up north in the winter, you may consider switching to snow tires for better grip. If you drive a performance vehicle, you might want summer tires, which will enhance your speed and agility.
