The Difference between AWD and 4WD

Tire care at a glance:

  • Proper inflation
  • Monthly inspection
  • Tire tread depth
  • Alignment check

You need your tires to be there to provide ample grip for a smooth ride whether you are in stop-and-go traffic or you are on the highway. When your tires begin to wear, they may not be as reliable as you need them to be. While tires normally wear over time, there are some things that can lead them to faster wear and tear.

The tires on your vehicle should be inflated properly at all times, which means you should look at all of them each month to ensure good pressure. Take the time to look at the spare tire as well and match up the pressure with the guidelines that are listed in the manufacturer’s manual for your vehicle. Poor tire alignment can cause your tires to wear unevenly and at a rapid rate. You should also know that different vehicles call for different tires, so a sports car’s tires might wear out much quicker than those on a sedan or truck. Worn tires will never offer the traction or performance that you expect from your vehicle.

Our GMC service center at Keyes Cars will help with any tire-related needs you may have. Even without notable wear and tear, your tires should be inspected regularly and changed out every five years.

If you need a tire replacement and you are not sure what your vehicle needs, our GMC tire center can help. Should you need a tire that we do not have in stock, we can order what you are looking for and then set up an appointment to have them installed upon arrival. Be sure to talk with us about any tire or service specials currently running so that you can save some money on your visit.
