When shopping for tires, it's easy to get confused. With a constant stream of tire deals and offers, social media posts and ads coming at you frequently, the choices can become overwhelming. While it's normal to be concerned about the immediate needs of finding the best prices for tires, it's also a very good idea to considerthe long-term safety and cost of properly maintaining your vehicle.
Original manufacturer tires
There's a reason Lincoln chose the original tires that came with your vehicle. Other replacement tires may not be the right fit. This can result in a less comfortable ride but, more importantly, lower fuel efficiency and more frequent tire rotation and replacement. The original tires Lincoln specified are designed to make the most of your vehicle's performance, saving you time and money.
The factory-trained service technicians at your local Lincoln dealership are ready to help you find the best tires for your specific model at the best price possible. In fact, many Lincoln dealerships have significant tire offers on original brands, including Michelin®, Goodyear and Continental. They also offer service specials for tire rotation, balancing and installation.
Factory-trained tire installation
Are you familiar with the ever-changing world of tire technology? Most of us aren't. Thankfully, there are over 9,000 factory-trained Lincoln technicians across America who are. Every year, forums across the web are inundated with tire installation nightmares. The tales vary from balancing errors to mounting mistakes, such as a technician's failure to recognize tire pressure monitoring systems, run-flats and other special technologies standard in most newer vehicles. These types of oversights can cause your monitoring system to malfunction leaving you in a potentially bad situation.
Lincoln service technicians are factory-trained to service Lincoln vehicles. Their training is developed by the same company that designed, engineered and built your vehicle and its monitoring system. This means as the technology advances, so does their training. This training greatly reduces, if not eliminates, the chances of the improper installation of your vehicle's tires.
Full-service maintenance and repair
As your vehicle reaches the 30,000 to 40,000-plus mileage range, tires are not the only parts on your car or SUV that may need attention. While most vehicles follow a regular maintenance schedule, some issues may occur before the recommended date or mileage range has been reached.
While servicing your tires, your Lincoln service technician is factory-trained to recognize and point out these potential maintenance issues to you. He or she can then recommend any needed repairs at the time of service, saving you additional trips to the dealership. These services can vary from a simple tune-up or oil change to more extensive engine or transmission repairs.
With over two million Lincoln vehicles of various models on the road today, it has never been more important to ensure your technician is familiar with your vehicle's maintenance needs. Other benefits of dealership installation include:
- Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts
- Full-service maintenance and repair facility
- Parts and labor warranties
- Clean, comfortable waiting areas
- Pickup and delivery service to and from your home or business
- Friendly and knowledgeable staff
While Wi-Fi, shuttle service and clean, comfortable service areas are certainly a bonus, there are other benefits that should get you excited about developing a relationship with your local Lincoln dealership.
