Tire Care & Maintenance

Wheel alignment and balance

Wheel alignment and balance

Ensuring your tires are properly aligned is critical to extending their life. Tires can wear unevenly if they are misaligned, and this could impact the way the vehicle handles.

Your tires were properly aligned on your vehicle at the factory where they were installed, but with time and miles, they may need to be looked at. That’s where we come in. You can schedule your tire service with us with ease over the phone or on our website.

Depending on your Cadillac model and drivetrain, booking both a front-end wheel alignment and rear wheel alignment can be especially important, as all-wheel drive transfers torque differently than front- or rear-wheel drive. In most cases, though, all four wheels will be realigned at the same appointment to ensure even wear over time.

This service should not be required often, but it can make a big difference in extending the life of your tires. If you’re experiencing issues like vibrations while driving on a smooth road or having difficulty with handling, it may be time to come see the professional technicians at Cadillac Marin, conveniently located in San Rafael, CA.

Tire pressure

Tire pressure

Your Cadillac model’s Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) will inform you if your tire pressure is incorrect. When the system alerts you, it’s important to heed this warning and get your tire pressure to the appropriate levels.

If the TPMS light is blinking for around a minute, then stays solid after that, a diagnostic check and service are required. There might be a problem with your TPMS system itself. You can browse our service specials to see if there are any offers for tire services that you can take advantage of. We can efficiently perform a tire pressure check, identify any issues, and get you back on the road.

Tire rotations

Tire rotations

Regular tire rotations prolong the quality miles you get out of your tires and help improve your vehicle’s performance as well. Each tire performs a different task, depending on its location on the vehicle. This also leads the tires to wear at different rates, making it imperative to have your tires rotated regularly. Our professionals recommend a tire rotation once every 7,500 miles.

Tire maintenance is all about knowing how to tell when your tires need to be replaced, rotated, or aligned, as well as what proper tire care looks like. Routine service and tire replacement keep you safe on the roads. When you’re ready to have your tires serviced, our team is here to help.

Tire Wear

Tire Wear

What causes tire wear?

Your tires will wear with contact with the road, and the rubber can become thinner with challenging road conditions. Maintenance also plays a part in how often you will need tire replacement. Getting the services above will help your tires wear evenly and more slowly. Alternatively, regularly driving with heavy loads or with over- or underinflated tires can cause issues.

When to replace tires

A tread indicator can be found on your tires and will be exposed as the tire continues to wear. You can also measure the tread depth of your tires yourself. When the dip measures 3/32″ or below, you should get new tires as soon as possible.

We’ll perform your tire installation with meticulous attention and get you back on your way as fast as we can. If you need to find the right tire, our extensive database will help. You can call us or utilize our website to find the tire that you’re after. Don’t delay your Cadillac tire service; schedule an appointment with us.


How long should Cadillac tires last?

You can expect the tires on your Cadillac model to last up to 50,000-75,000 miles. This number can be impacted by your driving style, how often you drive the vehicle in challenging conditions or on uneven terrain, whether or not your tires are properly aligned, and more. This is why it’s recommended to bring your Cadillac vehicle in for tire service every 7,500 miles.

Do Cadillac vehicles have run-flat tires?

Yes. Every Cadillac model is equipped with run-flat, all-weather tires. A run-flat tire is essentially a tire contained within another tire. When a flat occurs, the “other” tire can be driven for 50 miles to help you get to a destination for a replacement. Please consult your owner’s manual for more information on your tires and how the run-flat technology can help you.

How often should you perform maintenance on tires?

As mentioned above, it’s recommended to bring your Cadillac vehicle in for tire maintenance and services every 7,500 miles. As you drive your vehicle, your tires begin to wear. The tires also can wear unevenly as they each perform separate tasks. Rotations, alignments, service, and replacements can all be performed at our service center. Come see Cadillac Marin in San Rafael, CA.

Should you always replace all four tires?

You do not need to always replace all four tires when you are getting new tires, but it is recommended. While some of your tires may not have comparable wear as others, depending on the tasks they perform and the conditions they were exposed to, it’s wise to have all your tires in a similar condition to prevent uneven wearing.
