Most tires will last for between five and 10 years, depending on usage. However, there are also some signs you can look for to tell when it is time to visit a service centre to make an upgrade. 

First, most new tires have tread bars running across the grooves. These lines shouldn’t be visible when the rubber is new. However, as the wheels wear out, they will appear and serve as a signal to start considering new units. 

In terms of measurement, when a tread reaches 3.17 mm or less in depth, it is time for replacement. To test this, you can insert a nickel in the groove with the Queen’s head facing down. If the top of her crown is visible, you should go to a service centre for a professional inspection. 

If you need new tires or want a pro to look at your current wheels, contact our BC, Canada service centre today.

As these components age, they become less reliable. If you want to avoid getting stranded or having to jumpstart your car often, you need to replace the unit before it gets too old. When is the best time to make such as change? 

Most batteries last for three to five years. As they reach this age range, you may notice your auto hesitate when starting, corrosion around the connectors, or dimmer-than-normal interior lights. 

Also, many vehicles, including Fords, have an icon on the dash that illuminates if the onboard system detects electrical issues. This light is a signal to have a trusted service centre technician test the battery during your next maintenance appointment. 

If you need a new battery, you can schedule a visit at our BC service centre. We can let you know if it is actually time for an upgrade and handle the replacement installation for you.
