When to Replace Your Tires

Your tires should be rotated once every 6,000 miles or so to ensure each wears down evenly and retains as much traction for as long as possible. However, some drivers might not know when to schedule a tire changeover. Generally, most drivers will need to have their tires fully replaced by 20,000 miles or so. However, there are a variety of circumstances that can influence this changeover period. If you tend to drive less frequently and don't often drive during the winter, or on more rugged terrain, your tires can go for longer before needing to be changed.

If you have any questions about your tires and their traction, there is a simple trick you can perform while your car is parked, using a penny. Stick the penny in the center groove on your tire with President Lincoln 's head facing inward. If his head is mostly, or totally obscured by the tire, it is a good sign that they're in great shape. If his head is mostly, or totally, visible, you should replace your tires immediately to prevent hydroplaning and other major safety hazards.

As you drive through Burlington or St. Albans, you should pay special attention to the following signs your tires should be replaced:

  • Tire vibration
  • Cracked tires
  • "Tire" warning light
  • Wear on one side/vehicle leans due to uneven wear
  • Decreased fuel economy- uneven tire wear can cause engine to work overtime

When ordering tires, you will typically have three different options. The ones you chose all depend on the season:

  • All-Season: As their name suggests, all-season tires work well throughout the whole year, delivering comfortable drives on the highway in the summer and reliable grip during the winters. If you live in an area near St. Albans with heavy snowfall, or hot summers, you may wish to consider purchasing specialized season tires.
  • Summer: Summer tires are specially optimized for warmer weather and can withstand hot temperatures as the asphalt heats up from the sun. These tires use solid contact areas and rounded grooves for optimal wet and dry traction.
  • Winter: When the winter weather near Essex Junction gets below 45 degrees, it helps to have a good set of winter tires on your Toyota. Most modern winter tires are non-stuffed, with deeper and sharper grooves to prevent ice and snow from accumulating. Studded winter tires do still exist, but these are generally recommended only for intense winters and must be removed immediately after the snow melts to prevent damage to the road.

Other specialty tires are available for specific Toyota needs, including all-terrain, mud terrain, and temporary spare tires.
