When is it time for tire replacement?
Tires don't have a set lifespan. Road conditions, weather, a driver's habits, and the quality of the tire all affect how long a tire lasts. Regular preventative maintenance, having proper air pressure, and rotating your tires regularly can improve your tire's lifespan. After a tire is 5 years old, we recommend having a professional check them annually. Most tire manufacturers recommend replacing the tires if they are ten years old, no matter the amount of wear. At Rick's Automotive, we would be happy to check your tires and make sure your vehicle is safe for you, your family, and your fellow drivers.
Why buy new tires?

With improved traction, your car is able to apply more force to the ground with less work from the engine. You will also notice a smoother ride and improved turning when you have new tires.
