How Can You Make Your Cadillac Vehicle Tires Last Longer?
If you are in the market for some new tires, come to 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 overcorrect 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.

• Rotation: You should also have your tires rotated regularly to ensure that front and rear tires wear evenly.
• Are My Tires Too Worn?: Another crucial factor to keep in mind is the 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.
