Why Finding The Right Tires Is Crucial
Did you know that only 15% of drivers properly check their tire pressure? The U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association estimates that improper tire inspection and care can not only reduce your vehicle's performance but also reduce its life. Worse case, this can lead to accidents potentially causing harm to yourself and others.
"Where the rubber meets the road" is more than just a commonly used expression - it is where safety and performance meet. Cadillac is known in the auto industry for focusing on safety in terms of their braking systems, tire pressure monitors and Stabilitrak suspension. Most importantly, these Cadillac systems are critically dependent on properly selected, well maintained tires. It is important to understand why finding the right tires is essential.
Cadillac Tires Options
We said it in the title of this blog article... "Finding the right tires is crucial". So where should you start when looking for new Cadillac tires or any other vehicle brand? We would suggest starting with the tire finder tool. This tool will allow you to input your year/make/model and will provide you the exact tire size and various tire options. Once you've gotten an idea of your tire size and cost, call the experts. They can discuss options with you and present suggestions on what is right for your vehicle, vehicle performance, and budget.
What About Alignment?
Talk to your service advisor about tire alignment when looking for new tires for your vehicle. Tire alignment is critical in ensuring that you get the maximum wear and performance from your tires. Poor alignment can result from a number of elements that over time can cause your vehicle's suspension and steering system to steer out of adjustment (pun intended). If you notice your vehicle pulling one way or the other, or notice unusual tire deterioration, it is most likely due to improper tire alignment. In addition, some vehicles require special tire needs due to environment and traction conditions, these are geared toward Trucks, SUV's and sports cars.
