Today at your Jeep® dealers in Connecticut we want to talk to you about something that often gets overlooked: tire maintenance. It is impossible to overstate the importance of tires to your vehicle’s performance. Not only do tires help you maintain control on the road, tires that are worn down or out of balance can cause serious damage to the rest of your vehicle.

When Should You Rotate Your Tires?

Sometimes it can be difficult to know when to rotate your tires if they aren’t currently giving you any problems. Still, tire rotation is important to extend their life and quality. Executive Jeep recommends getting your tires rotated every time you get an oil change. At the very least, you should rotate them twice a year.

When Is it Time to Replace My Tires?

There is a simple test to see when it’s time for you to replace your tires: pull out a penny and insert it into your tire treads with Mr. Lincoln’s head facing down., into the tread of the tires at various places. If Lincoln’s head is completely visible, then you should seriously consider getting replacements as soon as possible.
