How to Get the Most Out of Your Tires

There are a variety of important things to keep in mind when  it comes to helping your vehicle run its best. Having good tires is just one of  them.

At the very least, you should have your tires inspected  every few thousand miles to ensure that they are up to par. This should be done  by certified technicians, like the ones at our onsite service center in  McKinney. That way, you'll feel confident in knowing your tires have been  thoroughly inspected for any problems by professionals who are well-versed at  diagnosing, replacing and fixing tire issues.

From road conditions to driving styles, there are many  simple steps you can take to avoid having a blowout on the road. Obtaining  regular tire rotations in McKinney can help you get the most out of your tires  and ensure you stay safe on the road. In addition, we recommend having your car  tires balanced and aligned at least once a year. To save money, check out our monthly tire  service specials online.

When to Bring Your Vehicle in for New Tires in McKinney

There are many symptoms McKinney drivers should watch out for  when it comes to bad tires. Check out our list below and examine your tires to  see if you may need new ones.

  • Tread wear - If your tires show signs of balding  or smoothness, they are most likely worn out to the point where they will need  to be replaced. One way to tell if your tread is dangerously low is by taking a  penny and placing it in between a tire's tread with Lincoln's head down. If the  top of his head is visible, then your tire tread is way too low and you'll need  to schedule an appointment at Nissan of McKinney immediately.
  • Tire Pressure - Vehicle speed and road  conditions can both contribute to your tires wearing out faster than they  should. Use a tire pressure gauge to make sure your tires have the correct  amount of air in them and do this at least once a month. Your owner's manual  will give you the correct psi information for your tires.
  • Steering Wheel Vibration - If you experience  this and/or your vehicle pulling to one side, you'll probably need to get your  tires aligned. Failing to have this essential tire service performed in a  timely manner could jeopardize your safety on the road.

Other telltale signs that your tires are going to need to be  replaced include cracks and bulges in the sidewalls. If you see either of these  symptoms, bring your vehicle in for service right away.
