Lincoln Tire Service FAQs

At Husker GMC, we are routinely asked many questions about tire maintenance. Some of the more common ones we hear are:

  • Is tire rotation important?
  • Are unbalanced tires dangerous?
  • Are wheel alignments really necessary?

Missing any recommended tire service inevitably leads to uneven tire wear, which means you'll have to replace your tires sooner. Tires should be rotated and balanced every 7,500 miles in order to achieve uniform wear on all four tires. It's good practice to also have your wheel alignment checked during this time, too.

Keep in mind that anytime you forgo professional tire care for long periods of time, you put your vehicle at risk for premature tire wear, suspension damage, transmission damage and even tire failure.
