While their purpose may seem simple, tires are an essential component of your Toyota's optimal performance, efficiency, comfort, and safety. For example, their pneumatic design helps absorb road imperfections for a smoother ride, and the tread provides the necessary traction for stable handling, especially in wet weather. They're also the only point of contact between you and the road, which makes proper tire care and timely replacement a vital part of your vehicle's maintenance.

When Should I Replace My Tires?

Good quality tires are pretty durable and can last from 30,000 to 50,000 miles, depending on certain factors like age, operating conditions, and driving habits. However, tires wear faster in the front than in the rear, so they should be rotated every 5,000 to 7,500 miles to ensure even wear and maximize lifespan.

To check whether your tires need to be replaced, you can look for the wear bears. These are small bumps at the base of the tread that, when even with the tread height, signal that the tire is no longer safe and should be changed as soon as possible. Another method of verifying tread depth is two insert a quarter headfirst into the tread at multiple points around the tire. If you can see the top of Washington's head at any point, the tread is too low, and the tire should be replaced.
