How do I know if I need new tires?
Just how long a set of tires will last on your Cadillac vehicle depends on how you drive your vehicle and the environment in which you drive. Hard driving combined with potholes in roads can lessen the life of a set of tires. Modern tires have a way of letting you know they need attention long before you are likely to suffer a blowout from the tread getting too low.
You will need a new tire when:
- Three or more indicators can be seen around the tire.
- The metal belt, pieces of cord or fabric is showing through the rubber.
- Cracks appear in the sidewall or tread that show cord or fabric.
- There is a bulge or split in the tire.
- The tire continuously leaks air, even after a proper patch has been applied.

Each Cadillac model has a different set of requirements that require a different set of tires. The tire experts at Cavender Cadillac will be able to work with you to find exactly what you need. The Cavender Cadillac tire department only stocks the best tires from the best manufacturers like BFGoodrich, Bridgestone, Continental, Dunlop and Firestone.

Tire air pressure
As long as there isn’t a puncture in the tire, most of today’s modern tires do a pretty good job of maintaining tire pressure. However, it is still a good idea to break out the classic stick gauge to check each tire. The proper pressure will be printed in the vehicle’s owner’s manual as well on the inside of the door frame. Some environmental factors can cause a change in the pressure of a tire.
The outside temperature can cause the air inside of a tire to expand and contract with its changes. On average, a tire will gain or lose as much as one psi with every 10 degree rise or fall in ambient temperature. Depending on the climate where the tires lives most of the time, this can have serious consequences for the life of a tire.
Problems with underinflated tires:
- Lower lifespan or odd wear patterns
- Difficult handling.
- Lost fuel-economy.
Problems with overinflated tires:
- Odd wear patterns.
- Increased stopping distance.
- Again, reduction in fuel-economy.
Monitoring tire pressure
Even though there are electronic system to monitor air pressure in tires. It is still advised in the owner’s manual to make sure everything is accurate by using a regular tire gauge. This is one of the standard points of every inspection during a service appointment at Cavender Cadillac. We are happy to perform this service to all of our customers.
Tire pressure monitoring systems
Most of the Cadillac vehicles sold in the last few years come with tire pressure monitors. This is an easy way to check the pressure of each tire from inside of the vehicle. However, even with the cutting edge technology, owners are still advised to use the tried and true method of using a standard tire gauge. We can do this for you free of charge if you stop by the service department anytime.
IRotating tires is a science. Cadillac engineers have laid out the proper way this should be done in the owner’s manual of your Cadillac vehicle. Tires that are kept in the same spot on the car for too long will start to develop flat spots in the tread. Moving the tires around the vehicle in the proper manner will help avoid this problem.
When the steering system and suspension isn’t aligned, it can cause the tires to wear out faster than normal. You can tell this is the case if the car wants to pull one way or another without you have putting pressure on the steering wheel. A quick stop by the Cavender Cadillac Service Department will tell you if this is the case.
A Cavender Cadillac service technician can determine if a vehicle needs front, rear or all four wheels aligned, per the manufacturer’s specifications.
