How to Maintain Your Toyota Tires
Proper Toyota tire care will help you stay safe and increase your tire’s lifetime on Lexington roads. Whether you have Toyota RAV4 tires or Toyota Camry tires, you can keep your tires healthy for longer with these tips:
- -Check your tire tread depth monthly: This can be done with a tire tread meter or a penny. If you have less than 2/32” of tire tread (or you can see all of Lincoln’s head) then it’s time to replace your tires.
- -Rotate your tires in accordance with your vehicle’s maintenance schedule: Rotating your tires prevents uneven wear which improves your vehicle’s performance, fuel economy, traction, and lifetime. Typically tires need to be rotated every 6,000 – 8,000 miles, but that number may change depending on your drivetrain: AWD, 4WD, FWD, RWD.
