Ok. It's tire time. Your precision-engineered Volkswagen vehicle is designed to offer you thrilling performance on the road, off of it, or both. Your tires matter, and that's why the Jim Ellis Volkswagen Tire Center is here. We know what your vehicle was designed to do, and we've got the supplies on hand to keep you going. In the following article, we'll give you some tips and tricks to keep your tires new for as long as possible, as well as provide some insight into some warning signs indicating that you'll need to come in and see us.

Volkswagen Tire Center Long-Life Tips 101

When you think about it, your tires are one of the primary safety features for your Volkswagen vehicle. Sure, right next to that is the fun factor they offer depending on what model you have, but tires are still tires, and here are some tips that will help you see the most life out of them:

  • Keep your tires correctly inflated - Correct inflation allows for correct surface contact and the greatest traction. Not to mention the fact that this technique minimizes rolling resistance, giving you optimal fuel economy. Check your owner's manual, or call our Volkswagen Tire Center for inflation specs.
  • Rotate your tires - Front tires wear faster. They go side to side when turning, and they also bear the brunt of the vehicle's weight under braking. With proper rotation, you ensure even wear and maximum life span.
  • Balance your tires - By balancing your tires, you ensure that they rotate smoothly at all speeds. This also allows for even wear and maximum life so that you avoid the risks of flat spots and "puckering." If you've ever heard a big-rig going down the freeway making that WOMP WOMP WOMP sound, those are the result of flat spots and puckers in the tire tread. The next step? Do you ever see those curly shredded rubber remnants on the side of the road? Don't let flat spots happen to you!

Our VW tire service technicians know what to look for, where to look for it, and when to tell you about it so that you can keep right on rolling.
