 Toyota Service Colorado Springs       
Maintaining your tires is one of the easiest and most important aspects of owning a vehicle. Your tires are in constant motion, rolling through miscellaneous weather, tough roads, pot holes, rough terrain and sudden stops all at various speeds. They are prone to wear and tear and need some TLC on a regular basis. Learn how to measure tire tread wear, when to replace your tires, the impact of tire balance and alignment and where to find discount tires in Colorado Springs. You can also shop for new tires in Colorado Springs at our dealership! Just pull into the Service garage and one of our Toyota Service Advisors will help you find the perfect tires for your vehicle. 

Measuring Tire Tread
To check the depth of a tire tread, you will need a penny or quarter. Place the penny in the tire's tread groove with Lincoln's head upside down and facing you. If Lincoln's entire head is visible, your tread depth is less than 2/32 and it's time for new tires. 

You can also measure tire tread depth using the treadwear indicator bar that's manufactured into your tires. When these bars become visibly flush with the adjacent ribs, the tire has no more than 2/32 inch of tread remaining, indicating it's time for new tires. 

Signs It's Time for an Alignment
When should you get a tire alignment? If you've noticed uneven tread wear, your vehicle is pulling to one side, the steering wheel is off center when driving straight or if you can feel the steering wheel vibrate and shake when driving, it's time for an alignment. 

When in doubt, you should have a technician check your alignment. It's always better to be safe than sorry. Ignoring signs of a needed alignment can cost you in the end. 

Tire Balance 
Having properly balanced tires is key to long-lasting tires, good gas mileage and proper vehicle wear. Having tires aligned and balanced every 5,000 to 6,000 miles can help maximize their lifespan and overall performance.
