Learn about Cadillac Tire Maintenance

Cadillac Premium Care Maintenance includes several important service features including tire rotation. While rotation is extremely important for the longevity of your tires, it is equally important to perform routine wheel alignments and check tire pressure.

Tire Rotation

Tire safety is crucial as you enjoy your Cadillac on the road. A tire rotation service involves repositioning your tires – from front to back, side to side, or even diagonally – for more even tread wear. Rotating tires extends the life of your tires and preserves balanced handling and traction.

Tire Balance & Alignment

Tires and wheels lose balance over time. This imbalance causes the car to vibrate and shake. A calibrated spin balancer is used to restore proper balance to your tires. The balancer tests both static and dynamic wheel balance.

A wheel alignment service is a correction to the car’s suspension system. The suspension system is what connects the wheels to the vehicle.

Both services improve control and keep you safe while driving on the road.

When to Replace Your Tires

Tires should be replaced before they become completely worn out. This is especially true during the winter months or generally cold climate. A good rule of thumb is to replace tires 5/32″ of remaining tread depth.

The Lincoln penny tread depth test is a common test used to determine tread depth. To perform this test, take a penny and place it between the tread ribs on your tire with Lincoln’s head pointed down. If Lincoln’s entire head disappears into the tread, then your tires have not worn out sufficiently. If you can see Lincoln’s head, then it is time for a tire replacement.

There are several other tests you can perform. While these tests are a good home remedy to determine tread depth, the best way to really tell if it’s time to change your tires is to bring it into our service center at Coastal Cadillac of Pawley’s Island, SC. Our certified technicians will conduct a full inspection to determine the health of your tires.
