How Do I Know When to Replace My Tires?

How Do I Know When to Replace My Tires?

We'll Find the Ideal Set for Your Ride!

At McGrath Honda of St. Charles, we want to keep you and your vehicle on the road for a very long time. We accomplish this not only by selling spectacular vehicles, but also by providing you with top-tier service! Today, we’re going to help show you how you can tell when you need to replace your tires.

The Penny Test

You always want to be mindful of the state your tires are in. These are the four points of contact between your vehicle and the pavement, and are thus critical to your safety and your vehicle’s performance. If you want to see how your tires seem to be doing, we’d suggest performing a quick, simple inspection from your home. All you have to do is grab a penny out of your wallet and place it into the groove on the tire with Lincoln facing downward—we’d suggest doing this in the spot where your tire appears to be the most worn. If you’re able to see the top of his head, then the treads are nearing the end of their lifespan and the grooves are far too shallow. If a large part of the penny sinks in instead, then you know that you still have some mileage left in your set.

Service

Although the penny test is a great cursory way to check, you can also keep track of your vehicle’s mileage since you last installed your tires. A set will typically last you three to four years and thousands upon thousands of miles, but the smartest way to keep track is to consult documents for the specific brand you purchased. Once it’s been a suitable amount of time, it’ll be time to come to our service bay for an inspection and a replacement. You can kick back in our lounge and we’ll replace your old set with a fresh, new one of your choosing. You can check our Parts Specials to see if there might be any great discounts waiting for you!  

Online Features

We know that it’s not always convenient to bring your vehicle into our dealership, which is why we do our best to provide you with a wide breadth of online tools to utilize. If you go to our online Service Department, you’ll find a virtual shop that has almost everything you could access when seeing us in person! You can visit online and make inquiries about your automobile via our Ask a Tech form, then order parts or schedule an appointment.

If you’ve been wondering, “How do I know when to replace my tires,” we hope that this quick guide has given you the answer! Join us at McGrath Honda of St. Charles soon to tackle the road with greater confidence.

My experience at St. Charles was awesome. Carlos did an excellent job of making sure that I was taken care of without any pressure. I love my new car and would recommend the dealership and Carlos to anyone looking for a Honda.

My experience at Honda of St. Charles was surprisingly pleasant and enjoyable. The staff and management are sincere, friendly and very professional. David Kolinen was the salesperson who helped and guided me through the entire process with patience and care. He went above and beyond my expectations by giving me a ride to the dealership. I will recommend McGrath Honda to all friends and family. Lillian T.

I will never go anywhere else for vehicle leasing, purchasing, maintenance and general customer service after going through the McGrath- Honda (suburbs.) Within 1 week Dave, Nate, and Chris had a brand new Honda LX in my hands, delivered, downtown. Not only, did they let me drive the car for over a week free of Charge, but they disposed of my no longer operating car and used it in the transactions. Specifically, London, was able to meet, and maintain my budget at about 10PM on a Monday. These guys really go above and beyond customer service and truly know how to take care of their patrons. Despite being a 2 hour round trip back to the city. I will never return to McGrath downtown (having purchased a Honda Civic from them 3 years ago) and will continue using McGrath- Honda St. Charles until I get that CRV! Thank you Nate, London and Dave for a spectacular customer experience.

It was time for a new vehicle. Contacted Ruth, a friend, at McGrath Honda, best move I could have made. Got a bit of red carpet treatment from Derek and George O. they were outstanding and very willing to work with me. Friday I had done all the leg work, upon which they let me take the new car home for the evening. Super nice to check it out for the evening. Saturday returned with the husband to finalize the deal. Great experience in all departments. Thank you all and I love my new Red 2010 CRV.

My husband and I visited this dealer today as serious buyers on a slightly used Insight. We met with Jose and later George, who were both a pleasure to deal with. While we were not able to work out a deal today, I would highly recommend coming here and working with these gentlemen. Jose was very knowledgeable on the cars and was fun to work with. George was a straight shooter, which is rare at car dealers. Overall if you are looking for a Honda, it is worth it to check this place out. **Update as of 11/18 - We went back today and bought the car. It was a great experience all around, and we plan on coming back for our next one. Thank you all for making this a great experience!

During my experience at this location, I dealt with Dustin Johnson and Carlos Fuentes. Not only were they BEYOND, helpful, they were understanding, kind and made the whole buying a car experience nothing but a breeze. Being a younger buyer, I do not have a lot of experience nor knowledge when it comes to buying a vehicle. They were fair, helpful and there for any questions I had. I would recommend this location AND the two of them personally to everyone. This is the best experience I have ever had when it comes to any type of sale!

When we pulled into the dealership we were immediately greeted by Blake, who helped us throughout our experience buying a car. We told what we were looking for and he pulled up lots of different vehicles. He also provided lots of information about the cars, and he really helped us have the best time while buying our car.

When we went to get a car, we told our sales person, Brian, what we were looking for and how much we could afford. Brian was most pleasant and knowledgeable and was able to put us in the car we wanted and needed for the price we could afford. Recently, our vehicle was in for a recall. From making the appointment with Sherri, who was great, to Eddie R., Service technician , taking care of us, also very pleasant to deal with, it all went smooth. Thanks for the great (and hopefully continued) service.

Great place , fast service .friendly staff. All around a good dealership . I wish I could give 5 stars but i called the dealership to get the total . I was told by the young man in the service department that the total was $1344 . I got a small loan for $1350 Today when I went in to pick up my car the cashier said it was well over $1400 . now my car is sitting in the dealership lot until Friday when I get paid . I wish the total I was given over the phone was the same when I got there . I will be spending a hundred in cab service between now and Friday . that leaves me very disappointed . #Ace taxi

My salesman, Blake T was great! We had shopped at several dealerships looking for a good used Honda for our college son (his first buying experience). We came to look at one particular car we had found online, but it was NOT even close to what we expected (not in a good way). Blake went to work and found something that was not only in the same price range, but was a much better fit! Thanks Blake and team for making this a great buying experience!
