Tire wear is inevitable for any car, but there are things that you can do to minimize it. These proactive steps are important because the condition of your tires will affect the safety of the vehicle as well as how long you have before you have to buy new tires. One thing you can do to prolong your tire life is to make sure it is properly inflated. If it is at the wrong pressure, the wear will start more rapidly and more unevenly. You will also want to make sure you get your tire rotations for your new BMW when recommended because this will help to ensure all four tires are spreading the wear evenly. Finally, the wheel alignment will help to make sure tire wear is even because this will adjust the angles of the tires and their contact with the road. All of these combined will help to keep tire wear under control for your vehicle.

It is recommended that you buy new tires once the tread wears down too low, which is usually around 50,000 miles. You should be able to tell by putting a penny in the groove between the tread ribs with Lincoln's head pointed down. If you don't see the top of Lincoln's head between the ribs of the tires, they still have the depth needed. If you can see it, the tread depth is 2/32-inch or less and needs to be replaced. You should also get the tires rotated every 5,000 to 8,000 miles to ensure the tread wears evenly among the tires.

If your vehicle is ready for a tire rotation or you are due for new tires, we invite you to head into our Fletcher BMW dealership today. As you can see, the tire maintenance is very important to the safety of your vehicle, so you do not want to delay your service or new parts. Our team will be happy to answer any other questions you may have when you are here so you can ensure you are taking proper care of your tires. No matter what, our team is here to serve you and help you with your new or pre-owned BMW car. We look forward to your visit!
