Tire Maintenance Tips and Tricks
At Woodfield Lexus, we believe in helping you make the most out of your driving experience. We’re a Lexus dealership that understands the value of driving a luxury car, and that in order to maintain this value, it is worthwhile to put your vehicle to regular maintenance.
Of all the car components that require regular maintenance, your tires are possibly one of the most important. Your tires are the foundation of your vehicle, and regardless if you drive an elegant 2019 Lexus ES or a rugged pickup truck, your tires can make all the difference in your driving experience. For this reason, our staff of car care professionals is pretty adamant about regular tire maintenance.
One thing you can do to ensure your tires are still in good shape is to conduct the penny test on your tire’s tread. The test is simple, take a penny and insert it into the tread of your tire. If you can still see the top of Abraham Lincoln’s head, it might be time to purchase a replacement. Your tread is responsible for gripping the road, and at the same time, shallow tread can show the age and wear of a tire.
Another tire maintenance tip is to check your tire’s air pressure levels on a semi-regular basis. If you’re not careful your tires can be overinflated or underinflated. In both cases, you can run the risk of busting a tire and be in dire need of a replacement. Most Lexus vehicles come equipped with tire pressure sensors that will alert you when your tire pressure is low or high. If you receive one of these alerts, it might be worthwhile to visit a car care expert to get your tire pressure in order.
At Woodfield Lexus, you’ll find a fully equipped service center staffed by technical professionals who know all the ins and outs of tire care. Regardless if you’re in need of a replacement, or just want to have your tires checked by a professional, at Woodfield Lexus we’re here for all of your tire maintenance needs.
