Don't Be Left Flat


Your vehicle's tires are incredibly important. Having properly maintained tires will improve your Toyota's performance, safety, and fuel efficiency. And besides maintaining your tire pressure and tread depth, rotating your tires is an important aspect of proper tire care. It's critical to ensuring that each tire has similar wear and lifespan; in fact, rotating your tires when it's recommended can increase your tires' life. So, when it is time for your tires to be rotated, our expert service technicians will take care of it in our advanced Toyota Service Center

When Should I Rotate My Tires?


The average tire rotation happens around every 5,000- to 8,000-miles. It is always best to check your vehicle's owner's manual or 'maintenance minder' before rotating your tires.
