Is It Time to Change Your Tires?

A vehicle is a thing of beauty and, as with most things of beauty, it requires tender love and care to continue functioning at maximum capacity. When it comes to your car, one act of care you really do not want to skip is the changing of tires. But, how can you tell when it’s time to change your tires?

Here are two basic “tests” you can give your tires to ensure they are road-worthy:

The Quarter Test

Stick a quarter head-first into the tread of your tire at a couple different locations. If you can see the top of Washington’s head more often than not, it’s most likely time to get some new tires, because that set is over-worn.

Age is Just a Number You Definitely Need to Pay Attention to

Even if your tires aren’t displaying evident wear, if they are six years or older, it’s definitely time for a new set. Rubber ages just like we do, folks.

So, you’ve followed those easy steps and have determined it is in fact time to change your tires; now what? That is the easy part! Just give our service experts at Southtowne Hyundai a ring and make an appointment to get a new set of wheels on your beloved car. We are always happy to keep your Hyundai running smoothly and safely!

Hyundai Sponsors Football Fanatics with Hyundai Youth Football Camp

Across America this summer, Hyundai is sponsoring opportunities for young football fans to get out on the field with their favorite players with the Hyundai Youth Football Camp.

Taking place in cities from Los Angeles to Pittsburgh, the Hyundai Youth Football Camp gives kids ages 7-13 the chance to exercise with all-stars and practice football skills and drills. The day-long camp includes a morning and afternoon session that highlights safe exercise practices and proper conditioning techniques.

Hyundai’s nonprofit organization, Hyundai Hope On Wheels, will also invite survivors of childhood cancers in the local area to attend the camp. In this year alone, Hyundai Hope On Wheels will donate over $15 million to children’s hospitals across the nation.

The coming 2017 NFL season marks Hyundai’s third year as an NFL sponsor. Hyundai aims to give fans more opportunities to engage in the sport they love while simultaneously increasing community involvement.

While the team here at Southtowne Hyundai are a bit disappointed to be over the age of 13 and unable to participate in the Hyundai Youth Football league, our happy consolation is the promise of many delightful football tailgates to come. If you happen to be in need of new tailgate hero, we just might have the perfect Hyundai for you at Southtowne Hyundai (we’re thinking something like an all-new Hyundai Tucson or Hyundai Santa Fe) — come on down for a test drive today!
