Preventable Causes of Tire Wear-and-Tear
Many factors and conditions affect the health of your tires, such as how often your tires get serviced, your driving style, and driving habits, too! Good news is you can prevent unnecessary wear-and-tear on your tires by bringing your INFINITI car to an INFINITI Service and Parts Department for tire rotations, inflation pressure checks, and every tire repair in between! A good piece of advice for checking your tire health on the go: when the tire tread wear indicators appear on your wheels, it means it’s time to replace that tire. What do tire tread wear indicators look like? They are thin strips of rubber across the tread of the tire – they become more visible as the tire wears.
How to Test Your Tread
The most efficient way to check your INFINITI tire wear is with a tread-depth gauge, but if you don’t have this tool then you can use a penny! All you need to do is place the penny upside down in between the tire tread (view picture below). If you can see the top of Lincoln’s head, the treads are worn and your tires are in need of a replacement, as soon as possible.
Rotate INFINITI Tires at INFINITI of Lafayette
Getting your tires rotated extends the health of your tire and improves overall performance and safety! How does this work? Tires are rotated for the purpose of achieving a cohesive “wear”. Because each tire has a different job to perform, it means each tire wears at a different rate. A good general rule to practice: have your tires rotated every 7,500 miles to prevent incongruent wear. It’s imperative that your tires get rotated in accordance with their correct tire-rotation pattern. Bring your INFINITI car to our Service Department so our team of expert technicians can take care of your tires and your safety.
