When Should I Replace My Volkswagen’s Tires?


How to Know When to Replace Your Car’s Tires

Panama City, Florida, locals can always count on Volkswagen Panama City’s certified Service Center to streamline their tire replacement needs.

Drivers frequently wonder when it’s time to replace their tires—and for good reasons. Worn tires with low tread are more susceptible to hazards like traction loss and punctures that can cause a blowout.

Your Volkswagen’s owner manual will list tire change interval recommendations. Most quality all-season tires can travel around 60,000 miles before needing a swap—and all tires over six years old need replacement.

Learn more about Volkswagen tire replacement signs and services that will extend the life of your tires with the information below.

Key Signs That It’s Time for Tire Replacement

Are you continually facing low tire pressure dashboard warnings even after filling your tires with air multiple times? Ongoing low tire pressure alerts can signal that there’s a leak within your tires that can be solved with either a patch or replacement.

We’ve established the dangers of driving with minimal tire tread, but when is your tires’ tread too low?

You can evaluate your tire tread depth through the tried and true penny test that involves putting Lincoln’s head down within your tire’s grooves. If you can see the top portion of Abraham Lincoln’s head after placing a penny head-down within your tires’ tread patterns, it’s time for a swap.

You may encounter a situation where you notice uneven tire tread wear or vibrations and noises emitting from your tires. Both of these instances can arise as a result of improper tire inflation, worn suspension components, or a driver neglecting necessary tire maintenance.

How to Prolong Tire Replacement

Timely Volkswagen tire maintenance will always help your tires go the extra mile. Three essential tire maintenance services are tire rotations, tire alignment, and tire balancing.

Tire rotations foster more even rates of treadwear by moving the positioning of your tires since certain positions put more stress on specific wheels. A quality Volkswagen tire alignment service will adjust your tires’ angles back to manufacturer specifications to promote more gradual tread wear, prevent left or right directional pulling, and stop steering wheel vibrations. Routine tire balancing fixes uneven distribution of tire weight, so you don’t have to experience vibrations, over-exert your suspension or accelerate your tires’ wear.
