The tire is one of the most important parts of a vehicle after all. Their role is more complex than simply making the car move—they absorb shock, help to brake, deliver power from the engine— all while bearing a very heavy weight. We’ll keep your car running like new by using genuine Nissan parts and high-quality tires, so you can maintain its value for years to come.
No matter where you are driving in Normal, Bloomington, or beyond, it is inevitable that your tires will experience regular wear and tear. As tires are worn down by daily use, their treads are diminished, decreasing traction. This is very unsafe to drive on “bald” tires, particularly in wet road conditions, as they lack the traction that keeps your car from sliding.
Tire rotation on your SUV or sedan is also important as it ensures the wear and weight is spread evenly among the tires. By spreading the wear equally you will make your tires last longer, saving you money. This, along with proper tire pressure, keeps you safe, keeps your vehicle functioning optimally, and makes your tires last longer. Improper tire pressure and function can lead to decreased fuel-efficiency, meaning greater costs at the tank.
Now how often should you bring your car into O’Brien Nissan of Bloomington for these services? It can vary by vehicle or tire type, but here are some general suggestions: it is recommended you rotate your tires every 6,000-8,000 miles or every six months. A great way to remember this is by getting your oil changed and tires rotated in the same visit. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recommends everyone change their tires every six years.
