Many car owners may think that selecting tires is just as simple as going down to your local tire shop and having another set of tires put on to replace the old set. Yet, the truth of the matter is that it is not that simple. In order to ensure that the proper tires are placed on a vehicle, a little bit more than buying a set of four replacements is required.
Tires should be inspected prior to replacement. This helps identify any unusual wear and tear, even damage, that may be occurring due to other issues. Some of these issues could be as simple as the need for a wheel alignment in conjunction with the replacement of worn out tires. Other issues could be more complicated such as extensive damage to the braking or steering system, even suspension, causing the current tires to wear out quickly and unevenly. This type of assessment and analysis should be left in the hands of a Toyota tire specialist and his team who can fully inspect the tires and wheels for these types of indicators.
Once the vehicle’s tires have been inspected, a Toyota tire specialist can recommend the right type of tires for Toyota owners based upon the owner’s driving habits and some other factors such as daily driving distance between work and home or weekend road trips. By sharing key information with the tire specialist, he can use that information to recommend the right type of tires for long distance driving, frequent stop and go traffic of metropolitan traffic jams, or simply driving between work and home. The recommendations provided would include any findings during the tire inspection and the recommended repairs to go along with the tires. After all, the point of the tire inspection is to ensure that the driver and passengers of the vehicle are riding under the safest conditions possible.
