Your tires are the only point of contact that your MINI Countryman or MINI Convertible has with the road. Thus, it’s important to take efficient care of them. Without routine checks or necessary replacements, you could be putting yourself, and others, in danger of an accident or breakdown.
How Do I Maintain My Tires?
The best way to maintain your tires is to check them routinely. This ensures that they are properly inflated and have the right tread depth. Under-inflated tires will cause excessive wear and tear on your wheels, leading to a blowout. Shallow treads will also drastically reduce your vehicle’s grip on the road, lowering its drivability. The best way to check your tire’s tread depth is with the “Lincoln test.” Slide a penny with Lincoln’s head down into your tread. If you can still see all of his head, your tread is too worn.
Tire Maintenance at Orlando MINI
Our MINI service center can also help you maintain your tires. Our services include:
- Tire Rotations – This is the process of switching out the tires from one position to another to ensure they wear more evenly and last longer.
- Tire Change – We’ll replace your old, worn tires for new ones. A typical life cycle of a tire is between 25,000 to 50,000 miles. If they are worn out and not in good condition, we suggest coming in as soon as possible to swap your tires out.
New tires will keep your MINI vehicle safe and sound while out on the road, as well as lead to more efficient fuel consumption. It’s important to take good care of your tires and replace them if necessary to keep you and your ride safe.
