Jaguar Tire Center in Columbus, OH
One of the most commonly neglected or forgotten components of your vehicle also happens to be one of the most important. The tires on your Jaguar have a major responsibility in keeping you and your loved ones out of harm’s way on the road. Additionally, they also play a huge role in the type of fuel economy you get along with how well your vehicle handles across all types of driving conditions.
Making the effort to verify that your tires are regularly maintained and properly rotated are two excellent methods to correct improper handling, prevent uneven tread wear, and enhance fuel economy. No matter how well you care for them, it’s also essential to remember that your tires will eventually wear out and require replacement. Thankfully, the Tire Center at Jaguar Easton carries a complete selection of factory-recommended OEM replacement tires that offer an exact fit for your vehicle. You can shop tires from top manufacturers while still enjoying competitive pricing on the highest quality replacement tires for your Jaguar vehicle.
Tire Maintenance FAQ
How Often Should My Tires Be Replaced?
A number of factors are involved in determining exactly how long your tires will last. Examples of these factors include the characteristics of the tire itself, correct tire inflation, proper vehicle alignment, and your personal driving habits. In general, tire lifespan for a set of four brand-new tires is typically between 25,000 and 50,000 miles. One easy and effective way to determine if your tires require replacement is known as “The Penny Test”. In fact, you don’t even need any special tools and the test can be performed in your own garage or driveway! We’ll explain the details of this test in greater detail below.
The Penny Test
- Place a penny between the tire tread ribs.
- Make sure that Lincoln’s head is pointed downward between the treads.
- If Abe Lincoln’s head disappears between the treads, this means that you have a minimum of 2/32 of tread depth remaining and a replacement isn’t needed quite yet. If you are able to see all of Lincoln’s head, this is a clear indication that your tire tread is far too worn and you should have your tires replaced as soon as possible.
What Are Run-Flat Tires?
Also occasionally referred to as “Extended Mobility Tires”, run-flat tires are a specially designed type of tire that has the ability to help you maintain control and even continue driving to safety in the event of a puncture. Select Jaguar models now come equipped with run-flat tires.
Thanks to their specialized characteristics, you’ll have greater safety and convenience thanks to their ability to drive up to 50 miles (depending on the severity of the damage or puncture) to have the tire repaired. Rather than stopping to wait for roadside assistance or putting your safety in jeopardy by changing it yourself on the side of the road, run-flat tires help you make the best of an otherwise dangerous situation. Other reasons to choose run-flat tires include not having to carry a spare tire inside your vehicle, helping to increase your fuel economy from the reduced weight. The extra space in your trunk allows you to carry more cargo as well. You’ll be able to identify run-flat tires by a marking on the sidewall which reads “MOE” for Extended Mobility Tires”.
