Frequently Asked Questions About Tire Service and Care

  • Why do I need tire rotations every few thousand miles? You may think that your tires are "rotating" themselves every time you drive; but the rotation we're talking about is moving tires from one position on the vehicle to another. Not only does this help significantly extend the life of your tires by evening out wear and tear, it can help your technicians see if there's an issue with your wheels' alignment
  • When do I need to replace my tires? When the tread on your tires has worn too thin, they can't do their job properly and should be replaced. To test this, grab a penny! Stick a penny top-first into a tire tread--if you can see Abraham Lincoln's head, your tread is too thin and you should consult a Ford tire expert. Properly rotating your tires, as mentioned above, can help extend the life of tires
  • Why is tire inflation and air pressure so important? On average, tires lose about 1 pound per square inch (psi) every month--and can also lose pressure when the temperatures drop. These small drops can add up, and low pressure in your tires can mean bad fuel economy at best, and dangerously high temperatures and a blowout at worst
