Has it been over five years since you've replaced your Ford's tires? If so, it may be time for a new set. The Arizona heat is anything but kind to your car's tires, and when the temps start to rise, so does the air pressure in your tires, causing them to wear out faster. Due to this, Phoenix car drivers often find themselves in need of new tires every few years.

Other factors can also play a role in tire wear, so be sure to look out for these common signs:

Tire Maintenance

Basic maintenance services can extend the life of your Acura's tires. It's recommended that you receive a tire alignment and tire rotation near Phoenix annually to prevent uneven wear, which can lead to premature tire replacement. You should also make sure to properly inflate your tires to the recommended psi to improve performance, always balance your tires after they are installed and have your tires inspected in the event damage has occurred.

There are also a number of signs you should look for when inspecting your tires to discover potential problems.

Signs You May Need New Tires

  1. Vibration
  2. If your car tends to vibrate or pull to one side while on the road, your tires could very well be the problem. This is often caused when car owners neglect proper tire maintenance, such as receiving a wheel alignment and tire rotation.

  3. Tread Wear
  4. In addition to vibration, avoiding routine tire service in Phoenix can lead to uneven or premature tread wear. You can check your Ford's tread wear at home by placing a penny into the tread, with Lincoln's head pointing down. If you can still see the top of Lincoln's head, your tires are in poor condition, and you're ready for a new set.

  5. Gouges & Cracks
  6. Spotting cracks or gouges in your tires can mean big problems, and you should bring your car into our service center immediately to get them assessed. Bulges are also signs to look out for, as these could be caused by a slow leak.
