When is it time for new tires?

If the date stamp on your tires is the same year you bought the vehicle, the time might be well overdue for new tires.

But when exactly do you need new tires?

If your vehicle is around 6 years old or has 40,000 – 60,000 miles on them, the tires your car or truck came with are likely at the end of their life.

Whether it’s a Camaro on performance tires or a hybrid on a tread designed to maximize fuel mileage, the manufacturer’s desire to bring out the characteristics of the vehicle that draws consumers in the first place are often why vehicles come with the tires they do.

Tires can also vary between sport, hybrid and diesel versions of the same vehicle.

If you’ve been happy with the way your car or truck rides since you drove it off the lot, stick with what’s on there to avoid any surprises down the road.

There are a lot of ways to shop for tires, whether it’s at your vehicle’s dealership, third-party retailers or even online or sites like craigslist.

At The Auto Shop, we can always hook you up with a new set of tires when you’re in for an oil change or other major service item.

Not only that, we can maintain the current tires you have on your vehicle, with tire rotations and pressure checks any time your vehicle is in our care.

For more information, give us a call today at (602) 256-6164 or stop by our brand new location to have your auto repair needs taken care of.

And remember, from fleet maintenance packages and services on up to major engine and drive-train repair, as well as anything from vehicle electronics to suspension, exhaust and air conditioning repair, The Auto Shop can handle it and then some.
