Everything You Need to Know About Tires at O’Brien Nissan of Bloomington
At O'Brien Nissan of Bloomington, our team takes pride in everything we do. We love helping customers explore our inventory of new Nissan cars, but we also enjoy helping those folks maintain the safety and efficiency of the cars they already purchased. That’s why we have a Nissan service department staffed by experienced automotive technicians, who will do everything possible to keep your vehicle running smoothly. This includes tire maintenance.
It may surprise you, but tire issues are one of the biggest reasons customers come to our service center. That's because your daily commute puts a lot of strain on your Nissan parts, and tires get the brunt of it. Driving day in and out will eventually wear the tread down and cause the pressure to decrease. It’s incredibly important to monitor your tires as a result.
Tire care at a glance:
- Check for excessive tread wear
- Monitor tire pressure
- Examine tires for uneven wear and other signs you need an alignment
Here's an easy test we learned from the technicians at our Nissan car dealership. Find a penny and insert it between the tread ribs on a single tire. If Abe Lincoln's entire head is still visible, your tread is below 2/32 inches. This means it’s time to replace your tires. Another easy thing you can do from home is check your tire pressure. In fact, many modern vehicles even have tire-pressure monitors built into their dashboards, which takes a lot of the guesswork out of the procedure. If the pressure is getting low, bring your Nissan vehicle into our dealership and let an expert inflate your tires. While you’re here, ask if you need a realignment, as well. Our team can perform both services quickly to get you out the door and on your way.
