Key Facts about Hyundai Tire Care

Why do my Hyundai car's tires need to be rotated?

  • Tires wear down over time. It's a simple fact of life. However, depending on if your Hyundai car is a front-wheel drive model or an all-wheel drive model, your tires will wear differently over time
  • In front-wheel drive Hyundai models, it's a good rule of thumb to rotate your tires roughly every 7,500 miles, as the front wheels will wear down more quickly than the rear wheels.
  • All-wheel drive models tend to wear their tires fairly evenly over time, but it's still important to rotate your tires from time to time. Consult your owner's manual or one of the technicians at our Hyundai service center near Suwanee to find out the rotation interval that's right for you.
  • By rotating your tires, you ensure that they wear more evenly, preventing uneven wear and extending their usable lifespan. So, if you're due for a Hyundai tire rotation, come see us here at Rick Case Hyundai Duluth.

When should I have the tires on my Hyundai replaced?

  • Some common signs that your Hyundai car's tires have reached the end of their usable life are vibration in the steering column or visible cracks along the sidewalls of the tires.
  • If you need to check the tread of your Hyundai car's tires, try the Penny Test. Place a penny upside down into the well of your tires' tread. The tread should cover roughly the top half of Abraham Lincoln's head. Now, a little bit less than that is usually okay too, but if you can see the whole head, it's usually a good indicator that your tires are worn down and need to be replaced.
  • No matter what sort of Hyundai tire care issues you might be experiencing, you can always count on us for all your new Hyundai tire sales and tire rotation needs near Atlanta and Lawrenceville.

Key Facts about Hyundai Oil Changes

What does engine oil do for my Hyundai?

  • Engine oil is essential to keeping your Hyundai car's engine lubricated, moving heat away from sensitive components, and clearing away debris and buildup, allowing your engine to operate at peak capacity.
  • As time goes on, your engine oil and oil filter will become saturated with debris and buildup, making it thicker and thus less able to lubricate your engine. If left unchanged, your Hyundai vehicle's engine can be seriously damaged by friction and excess heat that would have otherwise been mitigated by  fresh engine oil.

How frequently do I need to change my Hyundai car's engine oil?

  • Let's get one thing straight, if someone tells you that you need to change your Hyundai car's oil every 3,000 miles these days, they're usually pulling your leg. 3,000 mile oil changes are typically meant for much older models. In fact, some newer Hyundai cars can go up to 10,000 miles between oil changes.
  • That being said, it's always best to consult your owner's manual or check with one of the Hyundai technicians at Rick Case Hyundai Duluth to get an accurate idea of what oil change interval is right of your Hyundai model.
  • Now, if you find that your Hyundai car is due for an oil change, we'd love the chance to earn your business here. Feel free to schedule your next Hyundai oil change online with our service center near Norcross and Suwanee, GA today!
