FAQs

How often do I rotate my tires?
Most vehicle manufacturers recommend that you get your tires rotated about every 7,500 miles or six months.

WHY SHOULD I ROTATE MY TIRES?

When you follow your vehicle's manufacturer-recommended tire rotation intervals, you are supporting even tread wear, which helps improve handling, reduce noise and vibration, extend the life of the tire, and protect your tire warranty. Not only do these things save you from needing new tires sooner, they can also provide a better driving experience!
How do I know I need new tires?
If you see cracks, bulges or abrasions, your tires should be replaced. Otherwise, you’ll want to replace your tires once they reach a certain tread depth.

When you follow your vehicle's manufacturer-recommended tire rotation intervals, you are supporting even tread wear, which helps improve handling, reduce noise and vibration, extend the life of the tire, and protect your tire warranty. Not only do these things save you from needing new tires sooner, they can also provide a better driving experience!

According to most manufacturers, and even the law in most provinces, your tires should be replaced when the tread depth reaches 4/32” in the winter and 2/32″ in the summer. If your tread depth wears to those levels, your tires are considered bald and a safety hazard.

How to check your tread depth?
With a tire tread depth gauge
Tire tread depth gauges are a fast and easy way for you to know for sure if your tires are safe or if they need to be replaced.

1. Find the shallowest groove of the tread and insert the pin of the gauge until the base is flush with the tire.
2. Read the scale. Here’s what you might see, and what you should do:
Tread depth - What to do

6/32” - Your tire’s tread depth is sufficient.

5/32” - If wet roads are a concern, consider replacing your tires.

4/32” – 3/32” - Seriously consider replacing your tires as soon as possible.

2/32” - Your tires are legally bald and need to be replaced.

Tire tread depth gauges are available at most gas stations. Keep one in your glove compartment for easy access.

Don’t have a tire tread depth gauge? You can check your tire’s wear the Canadian way, with a quarter.

With a quarter
Insert a quarter into a tire tread groove with the caribou nose down and facing you. If the tire tread covers the tip of the nose, it’s probably adequate. If you can see the tip of the nose, it’s time to bring your vehicle in.

With tire tread wear indicators Your tires may also have built-in tread wear indicators. They’re little raised bars—usually six on each tire—along your tires grooves that mark the minimum permitted tread depth. If these indicators are worn, replace your tires right away.

Why is my TPMS light on?
The purpose of the TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) is to alert you when tire pressure is too low and could create unsafe driving conditions. If the light is illuminated, it means your tires could be under-inflated, which can lead to undue tire wear and possible tire failure.
