Tire service in Madison WI
Quality tires are an absolute requirement no matter what vehicle you are driving. Not only do quality tires allow for a smooth ride, they can keep you safe and help prevent accidents. If you have lived in Wisconsin for a year or longer, you have probably experienced everything this state’s climate can throw at you. Your tires are instrumental in keeping you on the road and out of the ditch during a snowstorm. Even in normal conditions, proper tires are vital to making sure you get home safely. Tire service in Madison WI from Middleton Ford will keep your tires in excellent working condition.
Sometimes it is easy to tell when you need new tires. Getting a flat tire is the most obvious, but what if your car is seemingly running well and you don’t notice any reduction in the quality of the ride? If you are unsure whether or not you need new tires, grab a penny. Turn it upside down and bury Lincoln’s head into the tire tread. Can you see all of Lincoln’s head? If so, your tread is worn down and you need new tires. If you don’t have a penny handy, you can still check to see if the tread is even with the wear bars in between the tread; if so, that is another sign that new tires are needed. Your tire tread is important because it helps grip the road and whisks out water when it is raining. It’s all about safety and proper performance.
Tire services available at Middleton Ford
You can get new tires right here at Middleton Ford if you need them. That said, tires don’t always need replacing—they just need servicing. We can rotate your tires to even out the wear and tear. This should generally be done about every 5,000 to 8,000 miles, or as recommended in your owner’s manual. Tire rotation helps the tires last longer, and also helps to make sure any tire warranty you have won’t be voided by neglecting to care for your tires in this manner.
Just as important to tire rotation is the alignment on your vehicle. This ensures that the tires are sitting on the ground properly, and proper alignment is vital to keep the wear on the tires even and the ride smooth. Middleton Ford can provide this service as well, since we want all areas covered when it comes to a safe and smooth ride.
