Without good tires, your vehicle certainly won’t be able to go very far. The team here at Rick Hill BMW are experts when it comes to tire maintenance and repair, and we want every driver to keep the following facts in mind when performing their regularly scheduled automotive maintenance.

The condition of a tire’s tread pattern is a good indication of how well the vehicle will handle on slick, wet or icy pavement. Worn treads are visible to even the most untrained observer and can easily be measured using a ruler or penny.

Your vehicle’s manual will generally provide optimum tire pressure levels for your specific make and model. Tire pressure can vary greatly depending on the season or even the time of day. For best results, keep a tire gauge handy and regularly top off the air in your tires if the levels get too low.
