Schedule Service Service Specials

Most cars require Ford tire service every six months. During your appointment, our professionals will look at the tread on all four tires. In cases where there is still tread to spare, they’ll perform Ford tire rotation. This involves moving the tires around the car in one of several particular patterns to encourage the tread to wear evenly for smoother traveling. For example, in the “X Pattern,” the left-front tire is moved to the right-back and vice versa. The right-front tire and left-back tire are also switched.

If the tread is less than 3/32″ in depth, Ford tire replacement is necessary to preserve traction and keep your family safe. The following dives deeper into how to care for your tires and signs that they need attention.

Reasons to Inspect Your Tires Regularly

There’s a reason that people say, “It’s time to roll” when they begin a drive. Healthy tires are crucial for getting to your destination safely. However, they are also the part of your car to endure the most contact with the road, making them prone to wear.

Check on your tires every two to four weeks to make sure that they are at the correct pressure and that their tread is deep enough. This will allow you to take the appropriate steps to fix the problem before it can become exacerbated or affect your safety.

A Guide to Tire Pressure

For most vehicles, tire pressure should be between 32 and 35 psi. You can figure out what yours is by using a pressure gauge and attaching it to the valve stem after removing the valve cap.

Overinflated tires are harder and less pliable. You’re more likely to have a bouncy ride that can result in your car moving faster or with more momentum than you would prefer. Underinflated tires ride flatter, slowing you down and leading to increased friction with the road. This can cause overheating, which also contributes to tire separation and blowouts. You’ll also likely use more fuel than normal.

A Guide to Tire Depth and the Penny Test

Tires with treads 2/32″ or less need to be replaced. To measure the depth of yours, you can use a tape measure, but if you don’t have one handy, a penny will do. Stick the penny, with the top of Lincoln’s head down, between two ribs of the tire. If you can still make out any of Lincoln’s head, then the tires are too thin to provide adequate traction.

Your Ford Tire Service Schedule

Part of extending the life of your tires is to get them regular tire service. We’ve already discussed the need for tire rotations every 7,500 miles or so. However, sometimes, your car won’t adhere to this exact schedule. You should also seek out tire rotation services if you notice uneven wear on your tires or if your car, truck, or SUV is vibrating or shimmying on the road.

You will also need tire balancing approximately every two years, though our team will look at your tires every six months. Tire balancing involves adding weights strategically around the tire to keep it as evenly distributed as possible, creating a smoother rolling motion. Unbalanced tires will also cause your vehicle to vibrate more than normal and reduce your fuel economy.

See us for wheel alignment if you run over a pothole or curb, and notice afterward that your vehicle tends to veer to the left or right when you’re trying to go straight.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are tires covered under the Ford warranty?

If you buy a new car, truck, or SUV from a Ford dealership in Phoenix, its new vehicle limited warranty covers tire defects due to problems with the factory-supplied tires or with the workmanship.1 The FordPass program also helps you earn complimentary maintenance points. To learn more details about this, reach out to one of our team members.

How often do I need new tires in Arizona?

It’s common to need new tires approximately every six years. However, if you drive a lot during those six years, encounter a lot of potholes, or aren’t able to get regular tire rotation or tire balancing, it’s likely that your tires will wear out sooner. You should also check your tires’ psi to make sure that it matches your owner’s manual recommendations to avoid premature wear.

What is included in a Ford full service?

Different vehicles need specific kinds of attention, which our dealership will provide. However, generally speaking, your scheduled Ford maintenance service will include an inspection of your vehicle’s brakes, steering system, suspension system, tires, engine oil, fluids, and filters. An oil change and other wear-and-tear services will then be performed as needed to improve your vehicle’s performance and expand its long-term life.
