Tires wear for reasons other than pressure and rotation. Driving conditions, alignment, worn or damaged parts, and other factors can effect tire wear.
You should check your tire pressure weekly. For safety as well as over-all tire life, proper inflation is important. A low tire can effect not only the way your vehicle will handle, but also effect tire wear and fuel economy.

Tires are like shoes, but for your car. We don't wear the same shoes to the office as the gym. Tires are made for a variety of purposes including wet and dry conditions, high mileage, high speed, steering response, ride comfort, etc. Always consult a tire professional about your driving circumstances when considering new tires.
Tire pressure is not always the same. Tire pressure varies depending on tire size and type as well as the vehicle they are on. Always refer to your vehicle manufacturers recommended tire pressure when gauging your tires. We can check your pressure and ensure proper inflation for free.
Most manufacturers recommend rotation between 5,000 and 7,000 miles. If you maintain a 5,000 mile oil change schedule, this is a good time to go ahead and have them rotated.
Generally, if a tire is damaged in the tread, it can be repaired. Any damage in the sidewall will prevent the tire from being repaired. If you are unsure, bring your tire in and have our professionals evaluate it for you.
The warning light for the monitoring system is activated when 1 or more tires are underinflated by 25% or more. Gauge your tires and inflate them to the manufacturer recommended pressure. We can check your pressure and ensure proper inflation for FREE.
