Marietta Toyota presents Frequently Asked Questions Tire Size and Tread Wear with Ashley Stephen


Hey Guys – I’m Ashley Stephens from Marietta
Toyota I’m one of the Service Advisers here. I’ve been here for about a year and a half.
Being that we have a special promotion this month on Tires I wanted to go over with you
– what kind of tires do I need and when do I need tires? Alright guys we’re going to
cover two things today – how do you know when you need tires and what kind of tires are
you looking for? So today I’m show you in two segments – one is how do you know that
you need tires – well we measure tires by with the tread depth remaining and I have
a tool that I’m going to show you how to do that as well.. but basically we measure tread
depth for remaining wear so that you know when you are going to need tires. We recommend
replacing 3 to 4 32 inches which is a common measurement. New tires start off at 12 /32
inches So that is what you want to be at. Also I’m going to show you exactly where you
can find what kind of tires is needed for your Toyota vehicle. The Size What kind of
Brand you are looking for things of that nature. Alright guys we are outside using a live visual
Car this is easy this is the right rear tire. You are going to use the tread depth measuring
gauge just like I mentioned earlier about take it lightly in your hand put it in the
center tread and an push down now this one if you see is at 10 to 12 out of 32 inches,
which is really good. This is almost a brand new vehicle but tire tread depth does wear
down after even 6 months of driving. so its right measuring 10 to 12 32’s and once these
measure about 3 to 4 that is when we are going to say it’s time to start looking at buying
new tires. Alright guys the second question most commonly asked that I get from most customers
is How do I know what kind of tires I need or What size tires do I have? Well I can show
you on this 4Runner right here so that way it’ll kind of demonstrate how you take a look
at the tire on your Toyota . Basically there is going to be a tire size you will have this
series of three numbers alright now if you look down here it is going to be a series
of 1 number a slash a number an R or another Letter and then another series of numbers
This size is 245 60 20 and of course that is not going to be the tire size for every
vehicle that is why it is important for you to check your own each vehicle comes with
different tire different rims some things are upgraded and some things are not so that
is why it is important to for you to know. Alright Guys we kind of wanted to give you
a little bit of a closer look up view of your tire it is kind of hard to see outside but
this is one of the tires we have on our rack for our tire sale and um basically what you
are going to have is.you are going to have something that with the brand of the tire
and then it will have the tire make and model and everything else that goes with it, the
tire series however there sometimes there are numbers accompanied with that model of
the tire but that’s okay you are not looking for that the size that we need to know is
going to be like I said earlier — 3 series of numbers 225 slash 60 letter R 16. that
is what we need to know in order to properly figure out what tires you want to put on your
Toyota. The 16 at the end of the series mean that you have a 16 inch rim that is the most
important thing that we need to know when you call in however it definitely helps to
have the full tire size. Our parts department carries a variety of brands we go from good
better and best ones that we commonly like to refer to are our Nexon Tires – is going
to be your least expensive tire. but it is still a quality tire I always like a Yokohama
tire – Yokohama is rated about a 60K miles tire or even better a Michelin Tire I am always
a fan of a Michelin Tire and actually we got a brand new Michelin tire its called the Michelin
defender and it is rated about 90 000 mile tire how can you beat that? so but if you
are a fan of other brands don’t get me wrong we still have lots of other tires to choose
from which if you want to give us a call and let us know what you are looking for we will
be happy to help you find the exact tire you are looking for … Alright guys, once again
my name is Ashley Stephens and I would be happy to help you at any time you want to
stop by and I hope you enjoyed our little video I am by no means a movie star but if
