Your tires are one of the most important components on your vehicle for handling, fuel efficiency, and safety — it’s the only part of your vehicle that comes into contact with the road.

Proper maintenance, road conditions, and driving conditions have a direct impact on the lifespan of your tires. We’ve outlined how to determine when you should have your tires replaced and how to find appropriate tires when the time comes.
Knowing when to replace your tires will help ensure you maintain maximum handling, traction, and safety while driving. There isn’t always a sure way of knowing how long tires will last — and when they need to be replaced isn’t always obvious. There are a few ways you can conduct a general diagnosis of your tires on your own.
We proudly offer tires from trusted brands for a diverse range of wheel sizes. Whether you need all-season tires, winter tires, summer tires, or all-terrain tires, we’re confident we have the right tires for your vehicle or specific needs.
Use our online tire finder tool to locate available tires according to the year, make, model, and trim of your vehicle. Before you begin, locate your current tire size on the sidewall of your tires. It will be formatted as 305/35R20 or LT275/70R18 (numbers may vary) depending on your vehicle.

Balanced tire and wheel weight is important for preventing uneven tread wear, vibrations, and possible damage to components of the suspension. Tires are balanced using small weights placed on the wheel. If your vehicle no longer feels smooth while driving or pulls to one side, schedule an appointment to have your tire balance checked.
Without problematic symptoms, you should have your tires balanced…
Regular tire rotations improve handling and traction, ensure even tread wear, and extend the life of your tires. Tire rotations are completed in patterns relative to front-, rear-, or all-wheel drive, or when tires are different sizes in a staggered setup. Depending on your vehicle, tires should be rotated every 5,000-7,500 miles.
