Tire Education: When is Time to Rotate or Replace?


When it’s time to replace the tires on your Ford Escape or Ford F-150 near Strathmore, AB, Strathmore Ford has everything you need: a terrific selection of tires from all the top manufacturers, frequent specials and discounts, and highly trained technicians to install your new tires quickly and correctly.

But how do you know when it’s time to replace your tires?

First, let’s discuss tire rotation. This service will prolong your tires’ lifespan and allow you to drive farther before buying four new tires. Regardless of what type of vehicle you drive, it’s a good idea to visit our local Ford dealer and have your tires rotated every 6,000 - 8,000 miles. Timely tire rotations ensure that all four tires will wear evenly, as opposed to one or more developing uneven wear patterns that could eventually be detrimental to your car’s fuel economy and safety.

Regarding when you should set your navigation to “Ford dealership near me” and buy new tires at our nearby Ford dealer, we can say with confidence that 40,000 - 45,000 miles is the range in which most automobiles will need new tires. The exact number could be slightly lower or higher depending on how often you drive, your driving style, the kind of tires you have, and other criteria. But at the very least, when your car’s mileage is within this range you should make an appointment with us to have your tires inspected. Also, keep in mind that when you do buy new tires, the best approach is to buy all four at once. This eliminates the chances of there being a “weak link” that prevents your Ford vehicle from performing to its max ability.
