Hyundai Tire Care Essentials

Why do I need to rotate my Hyundai vehicle's tires?

  • All tires wear down over time, but your Hyundai vehicles' tires may wear down unevenly if you don't rotate them regularly. In front-wheel drive Hyundai models, the front wheels will wear down faster than the rear ones, so regularly having them rotated at our Plantation, FL Hyundai service center can help significantly extend your tires' usable lifespan.
  • It's still crucial to rotate your tires with an all-wheel drive Hyundai vehicle, but not as often as you would with a front-wheel drive model. If you need to know when it's right to rotate your Hyundai's tires, consult your owner's manual or one of our technicians here at our Hyundai service center near Lauder Lakes, FL at your earliest convenience..

When do I need to replace the tires on my Hyundai?

  • If you notice changes in your Hyundai vehicle's ride quality like vibration from the steering column or a dramatic increase road noise, that may be a sign that your Hyundai vehicle's tires have uneven wear.
  • You can check the tread wear on your tires with something called the "Penny Test". By inserting a penny upside down into the tread well of your Hyundai vehicle's tires, you can measure their depth. The tread should be deep enough to cover about half of Abraham Lincoln's head on the coin. If you see most of Abraham Lincoln's head or all of it, make sure to visit our Hyundai service center near Margate, FL to get new tires for your car as soon as possible.

Hyundai Oil Change Essentials

When do I need to change my Hyundai car's oil?

  • The answer to this question can vary from model to model. You should check your owner's manual or make the short trip from Lauderhill, FL to our Hyundai service center to get professional advice on what the best oil change interval is for your Hyundai car.
  • Almost no Hyundai model in this day and age needs a 3,000 mile oil change, but factors like excessive heat, driving style, and road conditions make oil change intervals vary. A good rule of thumb is to check your oil dipstick every other time you go to the gas pump. Oil should be amber-colored, but if it comes up black and thick, you may want to pay us a visit at Rick Case Hyundai Plantation.

Should I used synthetic or conventional oil with my Hyundai?

  • Some Hyundai models are recommended to use synthetic oil, while others are recommended to use conventional oil. Ultimately, it's best to check with one of our service technicians or your owner's manual to find out which type of oil is right for your car.
  • At our Hyundai service center near Fort Lauderdale, we carry both conventional and synthetic oil from the most-recommended brands to ensure your Hyundai vehicle gets the care it needs in a timely manner.
