Keeping Your Tires are Healthy at Our Toyota Service Center

Giving you a great deal on new Toyota cars is just the start of what we do for our customers at Bob Smith Toyota. We strive to make sure that our customers are always taken care of, and with the winter weather making roads slick and treacherous, it’s vital to make sure your tires can provide the traction you need.

Tire Maintenance Basics

There are a few things to know about tire maintenance. First, it’s important to not forget about caring for them. Many drivers purchase a new set of tires for their Toyota Highlander and forget about caring for them. However, your tires need to be rotated at regular intervals to ensure ideal wear and tear over time. Not rotating your tires allows tire tread to wear down unequally, but if you rotate your tires every 6,000 to 8,000 miles or every six months, you ensure that your tires wear evenly.

You also need to consider the weather when caring for your tires. Since the weather doesn’t change much here, an all-weather tire should serve you well all year long. However, if you take your Toyota Highlander off-road or you spend a lot of time on the trails, you might need to get a sturdier off-road tire so you can get the traction you need on rough road surfaces.

When it’s time to take care of your tires, make sure you come into our Toyota service center to get your vehicle taken care of. Our expert Toyota technicians will ensure that your tires are in peak condition. We also have a huge selection of OEM and Toyota-recommended tires that will give you the security you need and the performance you love.

Three Important Tire Care Tips

Be good to your tires, and they’ll be good to you. Or, at least, they will give you a long lifespan so you don’t have to worry about looking for new tires near me for a while.

So, how can you best care for your tires? By focusing on these three key areas:

1. Rotations

When’s the last time you had your tires rotated? If you can’t remember, this could be an issue. Tires should be rotated every six months or so, perhaps more often if you do a lot of driving. This is because not all four tires wear down the same way.

Rotating them helps even this out, which lets them last longer. Having your tires rotated every time you get your oil changed can help you remember to do it.

2. Pressure

In order to perform as they should, tires need to be at the right pressure. If they’re under- or overinflated, this can make driving dangerous. In addition, when the pressure is off, this will hurt your fuel economy. This is why it pays to check your tire pressure every few months, as temperature fluctuations can cause the pressure to change.

3. Alignment

Another way to help ensure that your tires stay in good condition for a long time is with regular alignment checks. A sign that the alignment is off is when the car veers to one side or the other when driving. In addition to being unsafe, this can also cause other parts to wear down faster.

Even car owners diligent about giving their vehicles regular service can forget about the tires. If it has been a while since yours received any attention, make an appointment with the service center at Bob Smith Toyota near Glendale.

Luckily for you, our Toyota service technicians offer all kinds of services designed to equip your vehicle for inclement weather, so visit our service center today to learn how you can prep for the cold.

Winterizing your vehicle can be a pretty rigorous process in Midwestern or Eastern states, but for car-owners near Los Angeles, you can’t go wrong with a standard tire rotation and inspection. This will ensure that your tires will wear evenly, and our technicians can let you know if your tires need to be replaced altogether. We have a great range of tires to choose from, and if you’re looking for something with enhanced traction, winter tires are the way to go. These tires have deeper tread patterns that can grip the road more efficiently, so you can navigate slick or icy terrain with ease.

Checking fluids is also a good way to winterize your vehicle as well. Making sure your oil is fresh and your windshield wiper fluid is topped off is vital for any type of weather, no matter how extreme. To protect your engine from overheating or your windshield from freezing, visit our service technicians for a quick top-off.
