Tire Rotations and Changes

Making sure that you routinely inspect, rotate, and change your tires will help your Kia maintain its safety, performance, and value. Regular tire inspections every 5,000 miles or so will ensure that your tires are not only safe but are allowing your Kia to respond properly to braking and are offering optimal fuel efficiency. Keep your Kia operating at peak performance with routine tire service.

At Berlin City Kia of Vermont, we will carefully inspect your vehicle for free during every service visit. Examining your wheels is a big part of that inspection, we will likely recommend rotating your tires during your visit to help your tires wear evenly. Evenly wearing tires is essential for optimal performance and the longevity of your tires. Tires generally should last around six years before a change is recommended. However, overall driving habits and terrain may affect the lifespan of your tires.
