But Do I REALLY Need a New Set of Tires?

In short, your tires are one of the most critical components of your car. After all, how else can you blast off with track-inspired numbers in your MX-5 Miata, or come to an abrupt stop in your CX-9 to help keep your family safe from a fender bender? It all starts with having fresh rubber gripping to the road—and for that, you’ll need a quality set of tires.

On top of performance and safety, a new set of tires can even help maximize your fuel economy. When you ride with worn tread, your car needs to work hard to move you forward since you can’t properly grip to the road. Thus, your motor needs to use more gas to propel you—but when you balance out your tires and have fresh tread to help you smoothly roll across the road with virtually no issues, you’ll get extra help in hitting those EPA-estimates (if not surpassing them).

How Do I Know It’s Time for a Tire Replacement?

Not sure if it’s safe to drive with your current rubber levels? Not to worry—as this first trick will only cost you one cent. Start by inserting a penny head-first into your tread groove—can you see the top of Lincoln’s head? If so, you’ll want to schedule tire replacement service with us, as this is a sure-fire sign your tread has balded to suboptimal levels (if not possibly dangerous levels).

If the penny strategy pans out, pay attention to your drive on the road—are you sliding when you try to stop on dry roads or hydroplaning through traffic lights in the rain? If so, you’ll want to have your tires checked, as your rubber is struggling to grip to the road. Also, double-check your tires any time you hit an obstacle in the road—anything from potholes and curbs to nails and raised edges (like when cruising on a bridge) can deal nasty damage to your tread—so schedule service with us when for a quick repair to help ensure you won’t need to delay your rides.

Is There Anything I Can Do to Care for My Mazda Tires?

Keeping up with your tire maintenance is one of your best options—specifically, schedule a tire rotation every 5,000-7,500 miles. Each tire rotation gives our certified mechanics a chance to check for any wear, tear, damage, or irregularities (and make swift fixes before further problems arise). Also, this service will help your tread wear evenly since your tires that typically perform most of the work (like your front tires in a front-wheel drive vehicle) move to the other side of your ride, which gives your tread a break while your other set of tires takes on the bulk of your loads.

Beyond rotations, keep your tires topped off with fresh air, as this will help you grip to the road optimally without excess wear from your tread working harder to propel you forward with low air pressure. However, make sure your pressure isn’t too full, as this can lead to blowouts on the highway, putting you in a dangerous situation if you spin out.
