Regularly inspecting your tires will help determine when they should be replaced. Here is a list of warning signs that your tires may need replacement. Contact our Lexus of Edmonton Service Advisors if any irregularities are noticed.

  • Tire has any abnormal wear patterns which can affect the safe handling of the vehicle
  • Tire is cracked and is porous due to age or manufacturer defect
  • Tire bead or sidewall is damaged
  • Tire tread is damaged and the tire cord is exposed

    Lexus Tires Tread Depth

    When inspecting your tires, look for built-in “wear bars” – small raised strips of smooth rubber which appears when the tire is worn out.

  • Tire tread is punctured and cannot be patched from the inside
  • Tire belt is shifted and has created an “out-of-round” tire
  • Tire has abnormal bulge on its sidewall

Tread

  • Tire is worn to “wear indicator” or to minimum allowable limit as per tire manufacturer (1.6mm or 2/32″ for all-season and 4mm or 5/32″ for winter tires).
  • Measure it – and inspect it. Advanced and unusual wear can reduce the ability of the tread to grip the road in adverse conditions. Visually check your tires for uneven wear, looking for high and low areas or unusually smooth areas. Also check for signs of damage.

Understanding the tread pattern

The tread on a tire can tell you a lot about what kind of tire it is and how it is likely to perform in various conditions. Lexus Tires Understanding Tire Tread Pattern

  1. Sipes
    • More Sipes – higher wet traction
    • Solid blocks – better tear resistance in gravel, etc.
  2. Lateral grooves
    • Open – Improved mud, sand and snow traction
    • Closed – Quiet and higher cornering power on highway
  3. Shoulder blocks
    • Open – Higher traction
    • Closed- quiet and higher cornering on highways
  4. Centre rib
    • Solid – Responsive highway handling
    • No rib (lugs) – higher traction
  5. Circumferential grooves
    • Wide and clear- improved water dispersion at highway speeds
    • Zigzag and lugs – improved off road and snow traction

Increasing Tire Life

Alignment

Is your vehicle pulling to one side, or shaking? A bad jolt from hitting a curb or pothole can throw your front end out of alignment and damage your tires. Correct alignment allows for improved steering response and better handling performance. It also promotes even tire wear, which in turn means longer lasting tires. Proper alignment also reduces wear on the rest of the suspension. We suggest getting it inspected periodically to ensure that your vehicle is properly aligned.

Rotation

Regularly rotating your vehicle’s tires will help you achieve more uniform wear and increases the useful life of the tire. Tires should be rotated which we can do with regular service.

Winter Tires

Why use winter tires?

Much too often, winter tires are portrayed as “snow tires”. The truth is, winter tires are not only designed to perform in snowy conditions, but they are intended to provide optimal performance in cold weather temperatures as well. Therefore, even in the absence of snow on the road surface, your winter tires will continue to provide you with the performance and safety you expect, thanks to the soft compound mix capable of withstanding extreme temperatures.

Why use winter Tires

Benefits of Winter Tires

  • Excellent ride, comfort and safety
  • Exceptional grip in cold conditions
  • Superior braking capabilities on ice and snow
  • Superb wet and dry handling
  • Enhanced vehicle stability control (VSC) operation
  • Smoother take-off when equipped with traction control (TRAC)

Winter Tire Performance

Winter tires are particularly effective under difficult environmental conditions (snow, ice and mud) and at low temperatures, below +7?? degrees Celsius (44.6 degrees Fahrenheit). During the winter season, tires play a crucial role in the vehicles overall safety and performance.

As temperatures drop, standard (non-winter) compound characteristics show decreased elasticity. This results in a reduced contact area and therefore overall grip. The need for greater mobility and improved safety in winter conditions has led to high demand for winter tires. To better understand the benefits of a winter tire, we must understand that its properties are geared towards “cold temperature” performance.

Lexus Tire Storage Tips

Lexus of Edmonton offers a tire storage service.

Exposure to the elements and heat are the main factors that affect the speed at which a tire ages. Tires will age naturally, but by taking a few steps to properly care for your tires, you may be able to prolong their life.

Ultraviolet rays and heat are not good for the rubber in your tires. You should keep your off-season tires out of direct sunlight. When storing your tires, place them flat in a cool dry, cool location that is not close to electrical motors or machines. They can give off ozone, which can damage your tires.
