I thought all tires were the same?

Just like there are many types of drivers, there are many types of tires, too. You can choose tires for high mileages, speed control, steering response, ride comfort, wet or dry traction or all of the above. Our team will be happy to help you find the tires that fit your needs perfectly.

What should I look for in a tire?

As mentioned above, your tires should be chosen according to your lifestyle. If you know you’ll be driving long distances on your tires, take that into consideration. If you like tires that will grip the road, find tires that are rated highly for traction. When you visit our dealership to get your new tires, we’ll discuss your needs to help you find the perfect set for your driving style, budget and how long you expect to keep your vehicle.

How can I tell when it’s time to replace my tires?

It’s surprisingly simple to test whether it’s time to replace your tires. Just grab a penny and insert it into the tread of your tire (a groove that runs along the part of the tire that touches the road when it rolls). Put the penny in with Lincoln’s head facing down. If you can see the top of Lincoln’s head, it’s time to get your tires replaced. If the tread is still covering a good amount of Lincoln’s head, your tires are in good shape.

Do I really need to rotate my tires?

Yes! Rotating your tires helps them wear down at an even rate, so that one doesn’t get more thin than the others, potentially causing a blowout. When we rotate your tires, we ensure they’re in the right positions to wear down evenly.

Why should I buy my tires from a dealership?
