How often should I replace my tires on my Lincoln vehicle?

It may be time for new tires if they are more than six years old, or if you notice any of the following signs:

  • The tread has worn down to less than 3/32"
  • Bulges, blisters, or bubbles
  • Cracking in the tread grooves
  • Punctures, cuts, snags, or separation in tire tread, shoulder, or sidewall
  • Sudden loss of tire pressure
  • Poor handling or traction on slippery surfaces
  • Pulling to one side while driving
  • Sudden vibration while driving
  • Tires that have been driven while flat

Tires degrade over time depending on many factors such as weather, storage conditions, and conditions of use (load, speed, inflation pressure, etc.) the tires experience throughout their lives. In general, Lincoln recommends tires should be replaced after six years regardless of tread wear. You should replace your spare tire when you replace the road tires or after six years due to aging even if it has not been used.

Your local Lincoln dealer or Quick Lane has the right tires for your vehicle, competitive pricing, and is the best place for any other service your vehicle needs, including tire rotation, wheel alignment, and more.

For vehicle specific information, see your Owner's Manual.
