Importance of Tires

Learn all About Your Tires at Purchase Ford Lincoln

Your tires can take a beating. No matter what road conditions you drive on, the inevitability is that the tires on your vehicle will wear down over time. At our dealership here in Mayfield, we know that fact just as well as anyone else. We also know that having the right tools and parts for the job is important and not everyone has the capability to change tires themselves. We have professionally-trained technicians on hand who will walk you through the importance of your tires and why they mean everything to your Ford vehicle.

When Should You Change Your Tires?

You don't often think about the need to change your tires until you slam on the brakes and realize your tires aren't reacting the way they should. Roughly 9% of crashes are a result of poor tire tread or conditioning that is easily remedied by proper tire maintenance. We recommend that you should check your tires every month. What you're looking for is how much tread you have left on each tire and there's a simple test that we like to suggest in these situations.

To effectively gauge tread depth, you'll want to grab a quarter. Put the head of George Washington into one of the larger grooves on your tire. If the top of his head is flush with the tread, it means you have roughly 4/32 inch of tread remaining. That means you'll still have grip for rainy and snowy roads but it's not a lot. That's when you should begin your search for new tires. If you can see the space above George Washington's head, you should start the look for new tires immediately.

What You Should Do to Replace Your Tires

Once you've determined that you need to change your tires, you'll have to get them and replace them. You'll want to make sure you find the correct size tires for your vehicle. The side of your tires contain numbers that detail the cross-section width, the ratio of the sidewall height to the tire width and the size of the wheel in inches. 

Those will tell you the exact right tires you need. Once you determine the ones you need, you'll need to have them put on. That's where we come in!

You can do the tire replacement yourself. It requires a lot of work utilizing tools like a tire wrench and a jack that can boost your car up. You'll have to do this for multiple tires on your car and this may take up a lot of your time. 

With the trained technicians at our dealership, we provide you with all the help you need to ensure that your tire replacement is done to completion and your satisfaction.

We use professional methods to provide quality tire replacement that won't make you worry about whether the job was done correctly. We don't doubt your abilities to change your own tires, but we know that you don't always have the time to get it done properly. 

Most Ford drivers don't have the equipment, or a vehicle lift to make the replacement swift and easy. We have those and, after scheduling an appointment with us, we can provide swift service that gets you back on the road with your new tires in no time flat.
