Tire Service at Premier Cadillac of Carlsbad

The tires on your CT4, CT5, XT6, or Escalade keep your vehicle safely in contact with the road’s surface. Without their exceptional grip, you have little or no control over the path of your car. So, it is vital that you always purchase the tires that Cadillac recommends for the vehicle and have them regularly inspected and serviced as needed by the team you trust at Premier Cadillac of Carlsbad. Our pros are ready to handle any issues, such as balancing wheels, checking air pressures, and evaluating the wear pattern to ensure you get the most life out of your investment in tires. Most importantly, we are dedicated to ensuring that your tires keep you and your passengers as safe as possible on every trip in your Cadillac.

Proper Air Pressure in Your Tires is Paramount

If your vehicle’s tires are underinflated, they will feel soft and can compromise your ride comfort and the life of the tires. The specific operating air pressure of the tire is required to ensure it holds its shape and is not damaged because a bulging sidewall gets sliced on a pothole. If the air pressure is too high, the tire will be too dense and reduce the amount of tread in contact with the road’s surface.

Keep in mind that when a tire is inflated correctly, the surface area contacting the road at any given time is only about the size of the average adult hand. So, you never want to have too much air in the tires and reduce that griping surface even more. Remember, a 10% change in tire air pressure will roughly equal a 10% change in the surface area, providing traction and control of your vehicle. That same 10% range in tire pressure can also cost you around 3% of your vehicle’s fuel efficiency. So, stop by Premier Cadillac of Carlsbad today to ensure that your Cadillac’s tires are properly inflated and as safe as possible.

Protect the Life Expectancy of Your Tires

The power and sporty capability of the Cadillac lineup mean that you depend on your tires more than most drivers. The handling and safety of the vehicle are directly related to the tread wear and quality. The location of a tire on your vehicle is what determines the wear pattern of the tread. If the tires are not rotated about every 7,500 miles, they will suffer excessive wear in a specific area, preventing them from being suitable for rotation. However, regular tire rotation will ensure even wear across all parts of the tread on all tires, delivering the most safety and longevity.

Understanding Wheel Alignment and Balance

Ideally, the tires on your Cadillac roll smoothly down the road. This ensures the most comfort and best handling and safety of the vehicle. However, they don’t roll smoothly when the tires are out of alignment or balance. Instead, they could have a slight bounce or pull that will degrade ride comfort and cause the tires to wear out sooner than expected.

Investing in regular tire inspections and services is the best way to ensure the longevity of your vehicle’s tires and the safety of everyone in your Cadillac. Premier Cadillac of Carlsbad is conveniently located near OceansidePoway, and Chula Vista, so stop in today for a tire safety inspection.
