Why is Tire Maintenance Important?
Regular tire maintenance is crucial in your vehicle's performance, your fuel efficiency and your own safety! The more you drive your vehicle, the more your tires wear down and lose air and tread. It is important to maintain your tires to keep you and others safe on the road. A popped tire could become a bad fender-bender than just maintaining your tires overall care.
Why are Tires such a Pivotal Part of a Vehicle? Tires are one of the most important elements of your vehicle. Your tires keep your vehicle in traction with the road, steer you around curvy roads and stop your vehicle when you need it to halt. Your safety, and that of others, depends on the TLC that you give toward your tires in order for them to function properly.
When Do I Need New Tires? You can decipher if you need new tires by doing the penny trick! For each tire, insert a penny against the treads with the top of Lincoln's head facing the tire. If the tread does not extend past the top of Lincoln's head, then your tread is too low, indicating that you should get that tire replaced. Repeat this process for each tire and on each edge because your tire could be worn in different areas.
Our service center recommends that you get your vehicle's tires checked and rotated every six months or 7,500 miles, whichever comes first. Check your owner's manual for more specific information regarding your KIA model tires.
