Routine maintenance for your Kia vehicle will help ensure it stays on the road longer. While we often think of oil changes as the regular maintenance necessity, tires also need regular attention at a dealer service station, two to four times a year, depending on your brand of tires, how much you drive, and the type of driving you do.
What does routine tire maintenance entail?
Bringing your car in for routine tire maintenance at Bob Sight Kia means our service professionals will rotate your tires and check their air pressure, inflating or deflating as necessary. We’ll also inspect their alignment and offer a realignment if needed. Ultimately, our service professionals will also be able to spot when your tire tread is nearing the end of its life and recommend when to get new tires.
Why should you get routine tire maintenance?
The answer to this question is twofold: routine tire maintenance will save you money and will keep you safer on the road.
Saving you money: Routine tire maintenance means that you’ll extend the life of your tires, whether by keeping them properly inflated or by rotating them to ensure even wear. It also means that you’ll get improved fuel efficiency, as under-inflated tires is horrible for gas mileage. By ensuring proper inflation, you will visit the pump less and keep more money in your bank account.
Keeping you safe: By having your tires properly inflated and regularly inspected, you’ll ensure you and your family are safe behind the wheel. Low tire pressure can lead to flats, while poor tread depth can cause you to lose control of your car, especially in wet or snowy conditions. Regular maintenance means you won’t have to worry about either of these situations.
