Tire FAQs: Everything You Need to Know for European Luxury Vehicles

As your trusted partner in automotive excellence, we often answer questions here at Frank’s European Service in Las Vegas, NV. Our owner, Frank Scandura, has made it one of our top priorities as a business to educate and support our clientele. European vehicles are the epitome of luxury and fine craftsmanship, and if you take care of your vehicle, it’ll take care of you in the long run!

In this comprehensive guide, we’ll address frequently asked questions about tires, specifically tailored for European luxury vehicles. Our goal is to provide you with valuable insights and knowledge to ensure the optimal performance and safety of your prized automobile.

Q: How do I know which tire is best for my European luxury vehicle?

A: Selecting the right tire involves considering factors such as size, load capacity, speed rating, and season. Refer to your vehicle’s manual for manufacturer recommendations, and consult our expert technicians for personalized advice. If you’re unsure, the experts at Frank European Service are always happy to guide you. 

Q: What do the numbers on the tire sidewall mean? Should I be paying attention to them? 

A: The numbers indicate tire dimensions, including width, aspect ratio, and diameter. For instance, a tire with the marking P225/45R17 means it is for passenger vehicles (P), has a width of 225 millimeters, an aspect ratio of 45%, and fits a 17-inch wheel. And, yes, you should be paying attention to them–but only if you are changing your own tires or shopping on your own. Here at Frank’s European Service, we’re happy to worry about the details. 

Q: How can I extend the life of my tires?

A: Regularly check tire pressure, rotate tires every 6,000 to 8,000 miles, and ensure proper wheel alignment. This promotes even tire wear and longevity. We can take care of all of that at Frank’s European Service and keep you on a tight maintenance schedule to ensure your tires last as long as possible. 

Q: What should I do if I encounter a flat tire?

A: Equip yourself with a spare tire and the necessary tools beforehand. If a flat tire occurs, make sure to make sure to pull over safely and turn your hazards on, and then make a few calls for your safety. Follow your vehicle’s manual for instructions on changing a flat tire if you do decide to change your tire on your own. If uncertain, contact our service shop for assistance. We can help direct you with next steps and get you into the shop as soon as possible. 

Q: Are performance tires a good choice for my luxury vehicle?

A: We actually get this question a lot here at Frank’s European Service. Many of our clients drive luxury vehicles, and it may come as a natural question whether or not performance tires can be added. Performance tires enhance handling and grip but may have a shorter lifespan. Consider your driving habits and climate when opting for these high-performance options.

Q: How often should I have my tires balanced and aligned?

A: Regularly check alignment and balance during routine maintenance or if you notice uneven tread wear or steering issues. Proper alignment ensures optimal handling and tire longevity.
