Why Tire Care And Maintenance Is Important

    
Many drivers who'd never consider skipping a basic service like an oil change often overlook their tires. But tires play a crucial role in your car's performance and safety.

Systems like traction control and anti-lock brakes rely on your tires, as they're the only part of your car that touches the road! And since your local Land Rover Encino dealer is committed to keeping your car safe, reliable, and performing at it's best, our highly trained technicians always stress the importance of properly maintaining your tires.

Because if the weather turns rotten, you hit some rocky road, or you're just out carving corners on a Sunday drive, you'll appreciate the peace of mind a fresh set of rubber inspires. After all, when you're replacing your tires, you're ensuring your vehicle's ride, handling traction, and safety.

How You Can Tell You Need New Tires

Age, use, and road surfaces all contribute to the life of your tire. Different models and brands vary considerably, if you're unsure, have your tires inspected at Land Rover Encino. But it's generally advised to replace any tire before the ten-year mark.

Even being over or under-inflated can have a pronounced impact on your vehicle's handling and fuel efficiency, and a proper alignment is also crucial to making sure you get every mile out of your new tires. Your service advisor will be able to identify any problems with your tires, but the infographic below shows some of the most common issues, and what they mean for the health of your vehicle.
