Hit a pothole hard... Look for visual cues like tracks, cuts, bulges or blisters on tire including the tire sidewall. These shouldn't be ignored. Come in!
For starters, tire maintenance begins with proper inflation. Underinflated tires increase the occurrence of hydroplaning because they may not appropriately disperse water. Proper tire pressure is especially important during the slushy, slippery wet, late fall and winter months.
And potholes are troublemakers that can cause serious damage during this time of year too! It's always a good idea if you feel the hard hit of a pothole to get the tire checked out. It's quick and easy if you bring your car to Scott Honda through our Express Service lane for tire inspection and repairs. No appointment is required.
In addition to Honda's recommended tire maintenance and replacement schedule in your owner manual, there are certainly tell-tale signs that indicate it's time to get your Honda's tires checked like seeing little cracks in tires, bulges or bubbles, uneven tread, and feeling a rough ride or vibrations.

Tire Maintenance: Tires impact the performance and safety of your Honda. Tire pressure should be checked regularly and you should bring your Honda into our Express Service immediately for inspection if visual indications or vibrations become apparent to you.
Keep in mind also, when you rotate and balance your vehicle's tires on a regular schedule, it can extend their lifespan and enhance their performance.
Tire Rotation: Your vehicle's wheels and tires should be rotated to ensure even tread wear. Rotation pattern depends on your drive train and tire type.
Tire Balance: Over time, driving on your vehicle's tires wears the tread, which can affect their overall balance. The slightest imbalance can be noticeable to the driver.
Tire balance and rotation, usually done in combination with one another, is recommended at the same interval as your Genuine Honda oil change, or every six months.
We offer the convenience of tire maintenance through our Express Service Department which delivers a quick, easy experience and flexibility for your schedule since no appointment is necessary!
