How do you know if you need new tires?
Tire wear depends on several factors, including your driving style and tire maintenance habits. Wrong size load and speed rating can void your warranty. However, one sure way to know when to replace your tires is when treadwear indicators appear. A tires built-in treadwear indicators are "wear bars" that look like narrow strips of smooth rubber across the tread and appear when it's time to replace the tire. Not a tire expert? We can help. Stop by our Service Department, visit with your hometown Tire Expert. We are located right off I-70 in Abilene any time for complimentary tire evaluation by one of our Experts.
You also need a new tire if:
You can see three or more treadwear indicators around the tires.
Cord or fabric is showing through the rubber
The tread or sidewall is cracked, cut or snagged deep enough to show cord or fabric
The tire has a bulge or split
The tire has a puncture, cut or other damage that can't be repaired correctly.

TIRE ROTATION AND ALIGNMENT
Since each tire performs different tasks, (such as steering or front versus rear wheel drive), tires wear at different rates. Rotating your tires at recommended intervals extends their useful life and achieves more uniform tire wear.
It's important to rotate your tires according to the correct tire rotation pattern. Front tires encounter different tasks than rear tires. And a front-wheel-drive car's tires perform different tasks than those on a rear-wheel-drive care. Your owner's manual specifies which rotation pattern is right for your vehicle.

All tires, from all tire dealers in Kansas including Michelin, BF Goodrich, Bridgestone and Firestone need to be aligned. Alignment is critical for ensuring that you get maximum wear and performance from your tires. Poor alignment results from your car's suspension and steering system becoming out of adjustment with each other. The biggest indicator that your vehicle's tires need alignment is a "pulling" one way or the other as you drive or unusual tire wear. Improper tire inflation can also cause unusual tire wear. Holm Automotive Center's Tire Experts can recommend the alignment type that's right for your Chevy, Cadillac and Buick and it's specific tires.
