Worn or bald tires are one of the leading cause of accidents. Over a quarter of all crashes that occur involve a vehicle with worn tires. When it comes to safety, tires are arguably the most critical part on your vehicle. Worn tires can cause a blowout, difficult handling, and an increased risk of hydroplaning in wet driving conditions.
How do you know when it’s time to get new tires?
It’s important to check your tires before you drive on them. Most of us take it for granted, bald tires are pretty easy to identify. If your tires are worn but you’re not sure if they should be replaced, bring it in to one of our locations and we’ll check them for you. We’ll be able to tell you if you need new tires or you can get some more mileage on the ones you have. Keeping you safe is our #1 goal.
Tire rotation is the removal and relocation of each tire on your vehicle. Each tire on your vehicle wears differently, depending on their position on your vehicle, your personal driving style, your vehicle’s weight distribution, and performance characteristics. Front tires typically tend to wear more quickly than rear tires, because of steering/cornering forces and the difference in weight on the front tires. Drive tires tend to wear more quickly than non-drive tires. Rotating the position of your tires periodically promotes more even tread wear, and will help you get the most miles out of your tires, the best traction, and improved driving safety. During the service, we’ll rotate your tires according to your owner’s manual recommendations. Rotating tires is an important routine maintenance service for your vehicle, like oil changes.

Herbert Automotive™ recommends tire rotation in accordance with your owner’s manual recommended service intervals. Your Herbert Automotive™ technician will check your owner’s manual and let you know the proper tire rotation service interval for your specific vehicle.
