Do I Need A Tire Rotation or New Tires?

Tires Are Your Support System

The tires on your vehicle take a beating every time you drive.  Let's face it you live in northern Michigan, land of the potholes!  Tires do get old and worn down.  And because a tire failure when you are driving can be catastrophic, causing your car to go out of control or leaving you stranded in the middle of no where without any easy way to get home (we don't have many Uber drivers up north!, you want to know when your tires are in bad shape so you can get new ones before something terrible goes wrong.  

It May Be Time For A Tire Rotation!

Keeping your tires at the proper pressure for current temperatures and following the recommended tire rotation schedule will extend the life of your tires.

How to Spot Worn Tires

New tires should last 40,000-50,000 miles, but tire life depends on so many factors. The quality of the tire, the tread wear rating, the type of vehicle it's mounted on, how it is driven and tire maintenance can all have an effect. 

Be sure to stop by Brown Motors service department if you notice:

  • Tire tread that doesn't reach the top of Lincoln's head on an upside down penny.
  • Punctures, cuts or snags in your tire tread or sidewalls
  • Sudden loss of tire pressure
  • Your Tire Wear Indicator is lit up
  • You feel a sudden vibration when driving
