Top 5 Customer Questions About Tire Maintenance for your Cadillac
It is important to understand and know what your vehicle needs to properly run and more importantly, run efficiently for your vehicles life-span, fuel economy and performance. Most importantly, the tires on your Cadillac are the most important to care for.
1. Why is tire rotation so important?
If you have a new Cadillac CTS or you drive a Chevy Silverado, regular tire rotation is a must. Each tire on your vehicle performs different tasks, which eventually causes them to wear and tear at different rates. By rotating your tires, this allows the tires to wear evenly, providing a longer tire life and allowing you to replace all four at once, which is the preferred method for your vehicle.
2. I have heard that my first tire rotation on my Cadillac is the most important, why?
This is a known fact, that on new tires and those that are full in depth will irregularly tread faster. Therefore, the first tire rotation is the greatest in importance.
3. What is the importance of tire pressure?
Tires that are inflated incorrectly are the leading cause of tire failure. With under-inflated tires, they can generate heat which is not recommended for maintaining your tire life. Having the correct tire pressure in your vehicle's tires provides them with the optimum tread contact with the road which improves traction and braking, reducing your tires wear.
Checking your tire pressure monthly is ideal for any vehicle. If you reside in the Midwest, just like we do in Northeast Ohio, your tires pressure can change due constant weather changes. Your Cadillac Owners Manual can provide detailed maintenance information whether you drive a larger SUV like the Escalade or a smaller vehicle like the ATS.
4. How do I know if my Cadillac needs new tires?
On the Cadillac vehicle, when your tread wear indicators appear this is when it is time to go to your local Cadillac dealer. These tread wear indicators are also known as wear bars and can be seen around the exterior of the tire/s.
