Trust Your Tires to the Experts at Cox Toyota
When should tires be rotated?
While the exact number varies depending on your vehicle, on average your tires should be rotated every 5,000 to 8,000 miles. Our technicians will examine your tires when you visit us for an oil change and will alert you to any problems.
When do tires need to be replaced?
The average lifespan for a tire is 5 to 7 years when cared for properly. Frequent driving in snow and rain can cause your tires to wear out more quickly.
How do tires influence gas mileage?
Overinflated or underinflated tires can negatively affect your Toyota’s gas mileage. Always keep your tires at the tire pressure recommended in your owner’s manual.
Why is my tire maintenance warning light on?
There are several reasons your tire maintenance warning light may come on:
Your Toyota has exceeded the recommended mileage between maintenance schedules
Your tires are over or underinflated
The weather changed abruptly
What wears out car tires?
While all tires will wear down over time, issues like misalignment, over inflation, and underinflation can cause your tires to wear down prematurely. This is why periodic checks are important.
