Read the signs, act in time
Indications that your vehicle is due for tire replacement are usually pretty straightforward. If your tires squeal when making a sharp turn, for example, or signs your tire is losing air pressure are obvious indicators that new tires are needed ASAP. Ditto if your vehicle takes longer to stop than it should—which should never be taken lightly. Another easy way to tell if your tires are past their prime is to simply visually inspect them. Look for inconsistencies like:
- Uneven wear
- Missing tread
- Sidewall defects
If you see any of these indications of wear and tear, get to BTM Motorwerks right away! No need to risk your safety.
The best brands, the best results
In our 15 years of experience, BTM Motorwerks has learned a thing or two about which tire brands deliver on their promises, and which ones are full of hot air. That partly stems from the fact that most of our ASE-certified auto technicians own and race German and European-made vehicles themselves. However, we also listen to our customers when they report that a certain tire brand served their vehicle well, or if it didn’t. To that end, we have narrowed our preferred list of tire brands down to:
- BF Goodrich
When you work with BTM Motorwerks, you can rest assured that we will do everything humanly possible to find tires that fit your budget and deliver the reliable performance you and your vehicle both deserve.
The chicken or the egg?
Often, BTM Motorwerks has found that tire problems can be directly attributed to car problems, most specifically, alignment, steering, or suspension problems. If you’re having to replace your tires more often than factory guidelines specify, or one particular tire is consistently wearing out faster than the rest of them, you should probably bring your vehicle in for an alignment or suspension check before you think about replacing your tires. Leaving an alignment problem unchecked can compromise your vehicle’s fuel efficiency, not to mention the safety of you and your passengers. It isn’t safe to let things get to that point. Allow BTM Motorwerks to give your German or European car a full safety inspection today.
