When Should I Replace My Vehicle’s Tires?

When Should I Replace My Vehicle’s Tires?

You Can Count on Us!

Dealership Information

One of the most difficult things to keep up with when it comes to vehicle maintenance is swapping out your old tires for a fresh new set. The reason it can be challenging for individuals to remember is because they typically last for a long time, so long in fact that people forget to switch them out at all! At Pohanka Chevrolet, we’re here to remind you not to let this task go by unnoticed! We’re here to assist as soon as the time is right for you.

Why Do I Need to Replace My Tires?

If you’re wondering why replacing your tires is an essential facet of vehicle care, allow us to explain. As you take on the roads around town in your precious ride, the tread slowly wears down. This leads to reduced traction, which can be especially dangerous in colder climates where snow and slush are a regular part of life. Although you can increase the lifespan of your tires by rotating them every six months, they will eventually degrade to the point where it can be dangerous to drive on them. Instead of taking any unnecessary risks, be sure to have your rubbers replaced as soon as you notice a dip in their performance.

Timeframe

You might be wondering how often you should have your tires swapped, and we’re here to tell you! Because the condition of your wheels can fluctuate dramatically based on your driving habits, the climate, and road conditions, it’s hard to put an exact timeframe on when to replace them. That being said, a good rule of thumb is to have them checked by us after they reach five years of age. If our mechanics determine that they still have life left in them, they’ll suggest having them inspected every year after that. You can also get a good idea of the condition of your tires by using a penny. Just turn it facedown and insert it into the tread. If you can see all of Lincoln’s head, sticking out of the groove, it’s probably time to switch your tires out.

Our Tire Center

Do you think it’s about time to change your wheels for a new set? Then Pohanka Chevrolet offers the ideal avenue, as we boast a Tire Center at our dealership as well as useful online tools. In fact, you can find out what kind of rubbers you need from our very own website. Just navigate to the Tire Center tab above to get started. From there, input your vehicle’s year, make, model, trim, and tire size. Your page should populate with a list of products that will work for you. Alternatively, you can get all the answers you need by visiting us in person. You don’t even have to schedule an appointment ahead of time.

So, when should I replace my vehicle’s tires? Pohanka Chevrolet recommends getting them checked every five years to determine what to do next. For more information, contact us whenever it’s convenient for you.

Highly recommend Pohanka Chevrolet and Anuj! We had a great experience, which everyone knows is not usually what’s expected when you go to purchase a vehicle. Anuj was immediately responsive and in contact with us and met us when we pulled in (mask on and all give Covid). He had the car we were interested in ready to go and was great at going over all the features before our test drive. He entertained our indecisiveness regarding color and even brought out another car for us to see the interior. When it came time to start the paperwork it was the smoothest transaction we have ever made! And we’ve bought plenty of vehicles in our lifetimes. Anuj made sure to get us every discount we could qualify for and Chevy was offering a great incentive. We agreed upon the price on the first go- shocking I know! The entire process was great, go see Anuj!

Had a flat tire on my new Equinox. Called the service department at 7:00 pm. They made sure they had the matching tire available and invited me in that night! Sam was my service rep and she was simply fantastic!

I found a used Highlander online at Pohanka Chevrolet that appeared too good to be true and decided to make the 3 drive to see it. Elijah was our honest and knowledgeable salesman that facilitated the whole process. Financing was simple and straight forward thanks to Hunter. I would recommend this dealership for every aspect of the car buying experience. I got a beautiful vehicle for a more than fair price. Well worth the drive!

Had to get my transmission replaced and thought it was going to be a tough ordeal to go through. I was wrong. The service consultant, Art, was a huge help. Great communication through every step of the process and followed through on every promise. I've had a rough time dealing with car shops but these guys did a phenomenal job. Got my car back in great time as well. While I always try to do my own work I would definitely feel comfortable taking my car back for any major work.

My brother has been using Pohanka Chevy service for years and has convinced me to do the same for my Chevy under warranty as well as my other older owned GM vehicles. I live in Bethesda so it is a bit of a drive but their service hours, service staff and weekend times make it worth it.
