Tire Q&A

Want to learn more about tires? Keep reading! Our Tire Q&A covers some of the more common questions asked by drivers in the Silver Spring area.

Q:  How can I tell when I need to get my tires balanced?
A:  Often times, drivers will notice their car vibrating and/or a "wobbly" steering wheel.

Q:  Can I get just two new tires?
A:  That depends. Toyota drivers might want to invest in only two new tires if the other two are safe and reliable. The new tires should, however, be mounted in the rear to ensure optimum safety. The exception to the rule: Drivers buying snow tires. The best practice with this breed of tire is that all four be the same style and age.

Q:  What types of tires are there?
A:  There are all-season tires, performance all-season tires, ultra performance tires, all-season truck tires, all-terrain tires, winter tires, and performance winter tires. Choice depends on climate, type of tire included with your car and desired performance.  

Q:  How often should I get my wheels rotated?
A:  Best practice: Every other oil change. And yes, it really will make them wear longer and more evenly.

Q:  How much air should I keep in my tires?
A:  Perhaps the most common question of all and there's no one right answer. Different Toyota models require different tire pressure. The answer specific to your Toyota model can be found either in the owner's manual, on a sticker inside the glove box, or on a decal insight the door jamb. If you're filling up you tires, be sure to use an accurate tire-pressure gauge. Those at gas stations are often faulty.

Q:  How do I know if my tire tread boarders on unsafe?
A:  If you feel your vehicle is especially susceptible to slipping. Or, if treads fail the recently standardized "Quarter Test"... When the tread runs only to the top of George Washington's head, it's time to start exploring new tire options.
