When should I get a new set of tires?

For a truly enjoyable driving experience, we recommend replacing your vehicle's worn tires before it's too late. That's why, if your BMW's tires are worn, we recommend doing the tread test. Use a penny check the inner, outer and middle grooves of each tire. If you can see above the head of the penny, it's time to replace your BMW's tires.

How do I choose the best tires for my vehicle?

Our team members recommend choosing tires that reflect your daily driving habits, where you live and what types of weather you expect to encounter. If it's winter time and you're expecting snow, we recommend opting for snow tires. Otherwise, all seasons may do just fine. Of course, if you're unsure, our team will be happy to recommend a set.

How often are you supposed to have your tires rotated?

Having your vehicle's tires rotated is a great way to ensure even tread wear. In doing so, you'll also help to extend the overall longevity of your BMW's tires. With this in mind, our team members recommend having your tires rotated every 6,000-8,000 miles. For many of our customers, tire rotations are best done during an oil change.

Size Does Matter: When it comes to the tires that your BMW is riding on, size really does matter. Not only can having the wrong size tires cause make for a pretty uncomfortable driving experience, but it can also have a negative impact on safety.

Keeping Your Tires Properly Inflated: Keeping your BMW's tires properly inflated is absolutely vital to keeping them in good shape. Not only will doing so prevent uneven wear, but it'll also provide you with an even more comfortable driving experience.

Don't Skip When it Comes to Rotations: Another easy way to ensure the longevity of your vehicle's tires? Having them rotated on a regular basis. Doing so is a great way to ensure they wear evenly and don't run the risk of blowing out.

Always do the Tread Test: While new tires come with either 10/32" or 11/32" tread depths, excessive wear can impact the tread of your tires. To test the tread on your tires from the comfort of your own home, we suggest using a penny! If the tread is less than 2/32", we suggest stopping by our Service Center so we can get your BMW riding on a new set.
