Tire Rotations and Changes

Your tires are the only part of your vehicle that makes constant contact with the road. Because of that fact, your tires naturally wear over time. And since you don't just drive in a straight line or on pristine terrain all the time, different tires will wear at different rates. This makes it essential to rotate your tires every 7,500 miles to prevent irregular tire wear. Not only will this improve your tire's performance and your safety, but it will also help extend your tire's lifespan.

And after a five to six-year period, you'll need new tires to ensure your safety, performance, and to protect your Porsche's value. When that time comes, the experts at Porsche Austin can help you pick out new tires perfect for your Porsche model and your lifestyle needs.
