Pocatello New Tires

The condition of your car's tires is critical for its safe operation. Tires must bear the car's weight, send power and brake force to the road, and absorb shocks from bumps in the road. You'll need to check the tires regularly to make sure they can perform properly. A qualified service technician can check the tires for signs of wear and deterioration. While some tire problems can be repaired, most issues will likely require a set of replacement tires. If you work or live in Pocatello, new tires are easy to purchase when you visit the Hirning Buick GMC Service Center.

Tires have treads that create traction, allowing your car to drive safely when the road surface is wet. The grooves in the tread push the water away from the surface of the tire. If the tire tread is worn, the grooves won't be deep enough to channel the water away from the tire's surface. This results in a condition called hydroplaning. A hydroplaning vehicle is driving on a sheet of water instead of making contact with the road. It's easy to see how this situation can result in a serious accident.

New Tires Near Pocatello

Many drivers in the area ask us how they can tell if their vehicles need new tires near Pocatello. There's an easy way to check your tires, and all you need is a penny. Hold a penny with Lincoln's head pointing down. Push it into the groove in the tread. If any part of Lincoln's head is hidden, the tires are still good. If you can see his entire head, the treads are too shallow, and the tires will need to be replaced.

The tires' age is another way to tell that you might need new tires. The treads may look fine, but the rubber compound in the tire breaks down over time. Check with your tires' manufacturer to learn the recommended replacement time. If you're not sure whether it's time to replace your vehicle's tires, schedule a tire inspection at the Hirning Buick GMC Service Center. We'll check the tires and let you know if it's time to replace them.
