When Should I Replace My Vehicle’s Tires?

When Should I Replace My Vehicle’s Tires?

Visit Our Service Department Today!

Although we drive on them every day, they’re such an integral part of our vehicles that they’re easy to forget. We’re talking of course about your car’s tires. At Pohanka Acura, too many of our customers come in with wheels that are worn down beyond their safe limits. To help address this issue, we’ve decided to put together this article with everything you need to know about the life of your tires.

Why Is it Important to Change Your Tires?

Before anything else, it’s essential for you to know exactly why swapping out your rubbers for a new set is critical. As you drive from point to point, your tread slowly wears down. This is okay for a while, as they are designed to sustain a certain amount of wear and tear. However, eventually they’ll get beyond what is considered safe, typically within 50,000 miles or so.  At that point it’s best to switch them out as soon as possible, especially if winter is right around the corner. The reason for this is because your grip on the road will be dramatically reduced, impairing your ability to drive safely. Don’t take any unnecessary risks! Instead, let our team find you a replacement set before things get out of hand.

Tire Center

To make the process of finding new tires as simple as possible, we feature a Tire Center at our dealership, so you can find what you need with minimal effort. You can take advantage of this department right now from the comfort of your own couch if you’d like. All you have to do is click on the Tire Center tab at the top of the page. From there, just let us know the make, year, and model, of your ride. After that, your page should populate with a list of options available to you. Find a set that works, and then click on the See Price Quote button to see how much they cost.

Service Department

If you need some recommendations on the type of wheels you need, you can always rely on our Service Department. Once you find the perfect tires, you can have us install them for you. Our mechanics perform this maintenance every day, so you can expect to be in and out in the blink of an eye. If your tires are still in good condition, we can help you maintain them by rotating their position on your vehicle. Plus, we’re open seven days a week, which means you can swing by at your own convenience.

So, when should I replace my vehicle’s tires? We recommend every 50,000 miles to stay on the safe side. For more information, contact us, Pohanka Acura, whenever you’re able.

My salesman, Yohn Kim was phenomenal. He made me an offer on a brand new 2020 Acura TLX that beat all other dealers' offers in the DMV area. I was in-and-out of the dealership with a price that far exceeded my expectations in less than 3 hours. I highly recommend Pohanka Acura!

Two days later, I had new features installed on my car, and Yong Kim provided me with a brand new 2020 Acura TLX (with an upgraded B6 engine) as a rental for the day. He provided me with EXCEPTIONAL service, and I look forward to working with him again in the future!

I have been very pleased with Pohanka over the years. Yong Kim has helped me lease the last 3 vehicles and his professionalism and desire to help me find the best car and deal each time has been exceptional. The service department is top notch and I have never met an unfriendly person in any department I have dealt with at Pohanka. I love my new RDX! After years and years of sedans and the latest TLX's, I was not going to go with a boring SUV! This RDX is a blast to drive and I'm ecstatic that driving a truck can be fun!

Service at Pohanka Acura at Chantilly Va. Excellent Service on my 2012 Acura TL had struts and swaybar links replaced and my vehicle rides like new. I just thought the person who worked on my vehicle should be recognized as one of your best technician. Also in the service department, I want the Acura Dealership know that I received the most professional customer service from Cedric Singleton a customer can receive. I thought I should have mention this individual because he should be recognized.

I've been a customer since 1997. I've purchased two cars from Pohanka Acura. Both cars have been service here. I love the selection of cars but I love the service. This is only place I allow to service my car! Kyle Schmidt is "awesome"! He's straight forward in explaining about your repair and doesn't "BS" about what needs to be done. He tells you the price and keeps you informed on progress of your repair. When I leave I feel relieved the work was done right!!

Just purchased a 2020 MDX from Pohanka Acura. I live in upstate NY and did a online deal with Jason Smith of Pohanka. I can't believe how seamless the entire process was, including trading in my existing vehicle. I met one of their salesman (Shahbaz Butt) around mid-way between Syracuse, NY and Chantilly, Va. which is about a 6 hour ride. I signed some paperwork, exchanged keys and drove my new car home. I got a great deal and most importantly was treated fairly and with respect throughout the entire process. It was refreshing to deal with a car dealership who say what they mean and mean what they say! Both Jason and Shahbaz are top notch. Highly recommend this dealership. Love my new MDX !

I asked for one other service to be performed, which they did promptly. They washed my car and I left. They’ve rearranged the lobby for appropriate social distancing. They applied the service coupon that applied to my service. Great experience
