Tires are the only parts of your vehicle that actually touch the road, so proper inflation, even tread wear and new tires, if necessary, are important. That’s why Jiffy Lube® Technicians offers a full range of tire services.
A PENNY FOR YOUR THOUGHTS AND POSSIBLY FOR NEW TIRES
One good way to see if you need new tires is to measure your tread depth with a penny. Place a penny with the top of Lincoln’s head facing down in the grooves. If you can see the top of Lincoln’s head, it’s most likely time to get a new set of tires from Jiffy Lube®. Modern tires also have “wear bars” molded into the tread that show a cross-tire pattern when the tread wears down to a designated level. By the time you see the cross-tire pattern, it’s definitely time to replace the tire.
Having the correct amount of pressure in your tires means your vehicle is getting optimal contact with the road. Properly inflated tires help improve fuel economy and wear more evenly as well. That’s why the Jiffy Lube® Tire Rotation Service includes checking the tire pressure and inflating or deflating the tires as appropriate to meet your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations.
TIRE ROTATION SERVICE
To feel comfortable on the road, it’s important to have good traction. Due to various factors, including improper alignment, tires may wear unevenly across the tread pattern. Regular tire rotations at Jiffy Lube® can help evenly distribute wear — so you get the most miles out of your tires while maximizing traction on all four wheels and helping prevent flat tires. Just another way to Leave Worry Behind®.
FLAT TIRE REPAIR
In the unfortunate event you get a flat tire, come by Jiffy Lube®. Select Jiffy Lube locations offer flat tire repairs, as well as the option to buy brand new ones. So what could have been a major headache is just a minor inconvenience.
