Driving with little to no tread on your tire is dangerous. The National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration reports nearly 11,000 tire-related motor vehicle crashes each year. In addition to repairing, rotating and balancing tires, Kwik Kar also sells and installs brand name tires. Our technicians will help you select the right tire for your vehicle. Tires vary in price, so our wide selection will enable you to choose one that fits within your price range. We can install them on the spot to get you in and out on your schedule.
The first thing to consider is that the two parts most related to/responsible for a driver’s wellbeing (and the wellbeing of their passengers) are brakes and tires. Your safety literally depends on both. A good guideline to remember is: buy new tires every 40,000 miles, every 4 years, or when a tire is damaged beyond repair. The more complete answer is that it depends on the climate where you drive, your driving style, and how well you maintain your tires.
Typically, you’ll want the tires on your vehicle rotated and balanced every 4,000 to 5,000 miles – a good rule of thumb is to do it every time you have your oil changed (Kwik Kar can do both!) to promote more even and longer wear, especially on front wheel drive vehicles.
