Are Your Tires Ready for Summer Driving?

 


When the temperatures rise in and around the Lakeland area, heat gets absorbed into the roadways that you are driving on. During the summer, you need to be sure that you have tires in excellent condition to accommodate such a boost in temperature. Our friendly BMW service team at Fields BMW Lakeland is available to check out your tires and recommend a new set if necessary. Simply schedule an appointment at your earliest convenience, and our local Lakeland BMW dealership will handle the rest.

 

How Does Heat Affect Tires?

 

The type of driving you do will tell you whether or not you need summer tires. Inflation is crucial when warmer weather comes around because the heat on the road surface can actually be around 50 degrees hotter than the air around your vehicle. Heat exacerbates any current issue your tire may have, so making sure they're in optimal condition before high temperatures hit is recommended. In fact, for every 10-degree change in temperature, your tires can lose or gain 1 PSI. These drastic changes can result in several problems such as poor handling and braking and reduced efficiency.
