While some aspects of your luxury vehicle will hold up forever, tires are not one of them. Put simply, the time will inevitably come when your tires need to be replaced, and while nobody wants to spend any more money than they have to, the good people at BMW of El Cajon can at least help you get the right tires for your vehicle at a price can you live with.

Of course, there are some ways to keep from being too surprised by the inevitability of new tires. Obviously, the more you drive on them, the more the tread wears out. But how do you know when the tread has gotten too worn-down?

We have a simple test you can do at home to determine how much more life those tires have in them. Simply rest a penny head-down into a groove in your tire. If the rubber on the sides covers any part of Abe Lincoln’s head, you’re probably okay for a while longer, but if the rubber doesn’t touch his head, your tires likely are in need of replacements.

Choosing a replacement comes down to a lot of small decisions. Price is obviously one, but you can speak with a service tech at your BMW dealer in San Diego to determine other factors, such as size and the level of performance you’ve got planned for your automobile.

Whatever you need for your BMW X1 or BMW 3 Series or BMW M5, our service crew can take care of it—including new tires. It’s rarely an expense our customers look forward to making, but it is essential in ensuring your vehicle continues driving safely in and around Encinitas, CA!
