Q: I have a 2015 Renault; when should I get my tires rotated?
A: Beginning with the 2015 model year, owners of Renault vehicles are advised to see their dealer for a tire rotation on every service schedule
Q: Why is tire rotation so important?
A: Each tire on a vehicle performs a different task, causing them to wear at different rates. Regular tire rotation allows tires to wear evenly, maximizing tire life and allowing tires to be replaced in sets of four, which is preferable.
Q:I’ve heard that the first tire rotation on my new Renault vehicle is the most important. Why is that?
A: Irregular tread wear occurs fastest when tires are new and at full tread depth, thus the first tire rotation has been found to be of the greatest importance.
Q: Is it OK to rotate my tires earlier than 10,000 Kms on a 2015 model-year vehicle and newer?
A: Yes, it is OK, particularly if you notice signs of irregular tire wear.
Q: Why is tire pressure important?
A: Improperly inflated tires are a leading cause of tire failure. Proper tire pressure helps a tire have optimum tread contact with the road, which improves traction and braking and reduces tire wear. Underinflated tires generate heat, which is the tire’s worst enemy, so maintaining the right amount of air keeps temperatures where they should be.
Q:How often should I check my tire pressure?
A: Checking your tire pressure once a month is a good guideline. For specific information on your vehicle, refer to your Renault Owner’s Manual. Be sure the tires are cold (driven less than one kilometer), and don’t forget to check your spare tire. Use a good-quality tire gauge to check your tire pressure—don’t just use your “eyeballs” checking tires because they can look fine even when they are underinflated. Remember that tires can lose air pressure in cold weather.
Q: How will I know when I need new tires?
A: You’ll need new tires when the tread wear indicators—called wear bars—appear. These wear bars look like narrow strips of smooth rubber across the tread and appear when it’s time to replace
your tires. If you can see three or more tread wear indicators around the tire, you should replace your tires. Other ways to know when you need to replace your tires include cord or fabric showing through the rubber, cracks or cuts in the tread or sidewall deep enough to show cord or fabric, bulges or splits in the tire, and punctures or damage that cannot be repaired correctly. If you have questions about whether your tires need replacing, see the experts at your nearest Renault dealer.
Q: There are a lot of places that sell tires. Where should I go to get the right tires for my Renault at the right price?
A: Renault dealer can recommend tires that are right for your Renault, your driving habits, and your
