Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Tire Service
Maintaining proper tire care is crucial for electric and hybrid vehicles to ensure optimum performance and safety. Regular tire rotations and balancing are recommended every six months or 5,000 to 7,000 miles to prevent uneven wear.

Importance of Tire Service
Tire maintenance is crucial for all vehicles, including electric and hybrid cars. As the only part of your vehicle that constantly touches the road, tires wear down over time and require regular inspections. From driving on rough terrain to navigating different seasons, tire tread and inflation are essential for your safety and your vehicle's performance. Proper tire care can also extend the life of your tires and save you money on replacements.
To ensure even wear and maintain their grip, it is recommended to rotate your electric or hybrid vehicle tires every 5,000 to 7,000 miles. Depending on your vehicle's make, this involves moving the tires from one location to another to prevent uneven wear caused by the weight of the front of your car. Tire rotation can help your tires last longer and perform better.

Types of Tires
Choosing the right tires for your specific situation is essential for your safety, handling, and performance. All-season tires are suitable for year-round use in warm, dry, and wet conditions, while winter tires are designed to handle snow and ice. Performance tires are ideal for warmer climates and maximize speed, braking, cornering, and traction.
Tire Inspection & Warning Signs
Berlin City Service Center certified technicians will inspect your tires for signs of wear and damage every time you bring your vehicle in for service. It's also important to inspect your tires before long drives and inclement weather. Look out for warning signs such as exposed cord or steel belt material, uneven tire wear, scuffs or bulges on the sidewall, exposed tread wear indicators, foreign objects, or debris in the tread or sidewalls.
Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Benefits
Owning an Electric Vehicle or hybrid comes with many benefits and savings in terms of servicing costs. Electric Vehicles have fewer moving parts, which means lower maintenance costs. Hybrids use regenerative braking, which reduces brake wear and tear. Moreover, hybrids have a longer lifespan than traditional vehicles, which means fewer repairs and maintenance costs.
