So, what is the connection between tire care and performance? Whether you’re behind the wheel of a 2020 Acura NSX or are piloting a 2020 Acura RDX, tires can dramatically affect how your car performs on the road. Sure, there are the obvious factors to consider, like how tires are responsible for gripping the road and supporting the weight of the car, but there are other more subtle elements as well.

For one, the wear of a set of tires can play a crucial role in your driving experience. Tires wear down, no matter how expensive and well-made they are. While wear specifically can cause problems eventually, uneven wear is much worse. Not only does uneven wear cause excess drag and cause your engine to work harder but it can also put you at risk of experiencing a flat tire. Fortunately, you can easily solve this by receiving a thorough tire rotation once every 5,000 miles or so.

Your tire inflation also plays a massive role in your driving experience. Whether overinflated or underinflated, improperly inflated tires can cause all sorts of performance issues. On top of that, a set of overinflated tires has a greater chance of bursting unexpectedly which can be a huge hazard to the vehicle, you, and everyone else inside.

Needless to say, tires are important, and our Acura dealers and service staff are here to not only keep you in the loop but ensure your tires are ready for the open road. Hopkins Acura of Redwood City is more than just an auto dealership, we’re your number one auto-related resource.
