The Importance of Regularly Checking Your Tires

Your car has a great way of telling you when something is wrong. Dashboard warning lights are there to let you know when any major problems have happened to your vehicle. But these lights don't tell you everything. This is why you need to make sure your tires are in good shape after many miles of driving.

When they start losing tread, no dashboard warning light is going to tell you. Why is tread so important? Treading in the tire allows for water on the road to pass under your tire. With no tread, you risk hydroplaning and spinning out. Measure the depth of your tread. If it is below 4/32 of an inch, you should look for new tires soon.

Come to Captiol Toyota if you would like to have your tire depth professionally measured. If it’s time for new tires, our highly trained staff would love to help you find the best set for your car.
