When you own a Lexus model like the 2020 Lexus ES 350, you expect and deserve a constant level of performance. Here at Keyes Lexus of Valencia, we tirelessly to go above and beyond when it comes to providing drivers in the Valencia, CA area, with the best Lexus parts and service possible. 

One area that we want to focus on right now is your tires. Your tires are the only part of your car that actually touches the road. That means that they’re literally doing a lot of heavy lifting. Old or worn tires affect more than the performance you expect from your Lexus model; they can also cause damage and lead to accidents. That’s why we want to provide tips on how to keep track of two essential tire areas.

The first is your tire pressure. Your tires and your vehicle rely on proper tire pressure for several reasons. If your tires are underinflated, you increase the risk of damage as well as cause other components like your engine to work harder. We recommend buying a tire pressure gauge and regularly checking your tire pressure, especially as the weather fluctuates. Proper tire inflation also prevents uneven wear, helping your tires last longer. 

When you think it might be time to get a new set of tires, there’s a simple check. Take a penny and place it upside down in your tire treads. If you can still see the top of Lincoln’s head, this is an indication that you need new tires.

When it comes time to replace your tires, trust the dealership. We know everything about all Lexus models and can help you find the right set of tires for your vehicle and your driving needs. For expert tire service, visit us today.
