How Can You Make Your Cadillac Vehicle Tires Last Longer?
If you are in the market for new tires, visit Cadillac of Portland for a massive inventory of high-quality tires at competitive prices. We offer thorough tire service and repair for all makes and models of cars and SUVs, including flat repair, alignment, and rotation. Cadillac CTS, ATS, and Escalade drivers can get their tire pressure checked at our dealership.
There are some routine maintenance steps that you can have done to prolong the life of your tires and help keep you safe:
• Alignment: Keeping your wheels in proper alignment will help the tread to wear evenly across the tire's width. Improper alignment can also cause your vehicle to pull towards one side as it drives. This will make you over-correct when steering and end in faster tire wear.
• Pressure: Your tires were designed to be inflated to a specific pressure. Keeping them filled to the correct pressure level makes sure that they have maximum contact with the road and give you the performance you deserve. Visit our dealership to learn more about Cadillac CTS, ATS and Escalade recommended tire pressure.
• Rotation: You should also have your tires rotated regularly to ensure that front and rear tires wear evenly.
• Tire Tread Depth: There are a number of ways to check wear, including professional tools, but an easy way to assess tread wear is the penny test. All you do is place a copper penny into the groove of your tire tread with Lincoln's head upside down and facing you. If you can see the entire head, you have less than 2/32 of an inch of tread left and should get your tires replaced as soon as you can.
What is the Recommended Tire Pressure for your Cadillac CTS, ATS or Escalade?
Optimal tire pressure ranges will change by tire size and type. You can find the optimal air pressure level displayed inside your vehicle owner’s manual or on the tire placard, which is generally attached to your vehicle’s door edge, glove box or fuel door. Most tires may also have an ideal PSI scale written on the tire sidewall. When it comes to tread depth, your tire is believed to be at the conclusion of its life as soon as the tread is worn down to around 2/32 inches.

How Often Should I Check Tire Pressure and Tread Depth?
You are encouraged to regularly check your Cadillac ATS or Escalade's tire pressure because all tires will lose pressure consistently over time, during both warm and cold climate months. The weather is not the only factor that results in a loss in pressure either. Elevation shifts, flexing, and tire wall impacts will slowly decline air pressure. The most beneficial approach for optimal tire care is to always examine tire pressure every alternate visit to the gas station. With regard to tread depth, you should examine that each and every time you change your oil and you rotate your tires each alternate oil change so that you can extend the life of your tires.
