Tire Service

Tire Service in Boone, NC at Modern Toyota of Boone

The tires represent the most important parts of your Toyota as these are the only components to actually make contact with the ground regularly. As such, proper tire maintenance is as essential to any new Toyota or used car's life as an oil change or brake inspection. When you need a routine tire rotation, alignment re-setting, or new tires all together, you can schedule a maintenance appointment and order new tires through our tire center at Modern Toyota of Boone in Boone, NC; we are located less than a 45-minute drive outside of North Wilkesboro.

The Importance of Tire Rotations

As you commute in and out of Ashville or Boone, you might not pay frequent attention to the weight your new or used Toyota carries and how said weight is distributed. Depending on your typical cargo and what types of terrain you are used to driving in Hickory, NC, a tire rotation is essential to preserving the longevity of your tires as long as possible. In a tire rotation, our factory-certified Toyota mechanics will place your tires at select new points on the vehicle so that they wear down at exactly the same pace and keep your alignment at optimal balance. A tire rotation should be performed on your Toyota once every 6,000 miles or so.

Be Aware of Warning Signs

Your tire pressure monitor will send you an alert, during your morning commute to Johnson City, when one tire loses pressure and needs inflation. However, you should keep an eye out for other signs your tires might need replacement, such as:

  • Tire Tread Balding: This can be determined by using a penny or quarter inserted into the largest grooves in the tire to see how much of the coin is covered by tire.
  • Tire Cupping: You may notice, visibly, that your tires wear down in certain more specific areas, which is referred to as "cupping" and it is a clear sign your tires need rotation/replacement.
  • Changing Seasons: Many people tend to put summer tires or studded winter tires on during the changing seasons near Lenoir, but you should be aware of the tread these tires hold and you should swap them out immediately once the seasons end.
