Audi Tire Center at Audi Louisville

One of the most important components of your Audi is sadly also one of the most commonly overlooked. Your tires play a huge role in keeping you and your vehicle out of harm's way on the road. They're also essential in determining what kind of fuel economy you get along with how well your vehicle handles on your daily drive.

Taking the time to ensure that your tires are regularly rotated and maintained properly are two excellent ways to improve poor handling, avoid uneven tread wear, and boost fuel economy. It's also important to remember that your tires will eventually wear out and require replacement no matter how well you care for them. Fortunately, you can find a comprehensive selection of factory-recommended OEM replacement tires at the Tire Center at Audi Louisville. You'll be able to browse tires from the top manufacturers and enjoy competitive pricing in order to help maximize your savings on quality replacement tires for your Audi vehicle.



Tire Maintenance FAQ

Audi Tire Mounting

How Often Should Tires Be Replaced?

Determining how long your tires will last depends on a variety of factors. These factors include the characteristics of the tire itself, your personal driving habits, proper tire inflation, and correct vehicle alignment. As a general rule, you can typically expect the lifespan of four new tires to last between 25,000 and 50,000 miles. A great way that you can determine if your tires need to be replaced is called "The Penny Test". It's so simple that you're able to perform this test in just a matter of minutes in your own driveway or garage. We'll explain this test in detail below.

Audi Run Flat Tires

What Are Run Flat Tires?

Sometimes known as "Extended Mobility Tires", run flat tires are a specially designed type of tire which has the ability to help you maintain control and even continue driving to safety in the event of a puncture. Many Audi models now come equipped with run flat tires.

These unique tire variants offer both convenience and safety by allowing you to safely drive up to 50 miles (depending on the severity of the damage or puncture) to have the tire repaired. Instead of stopping to wait for roadside assistance or risking your safety changing it yourself on the side of the road, run flat tires help you make the best of an otherwise difficult situation. Other reasons to choose run flat tires include not having to carry a spare tire inside your vehicle, helping to boost your fuel economy from the reduced weight. The extra space in your trunk allows you to carry more cargo as well. You'll be able to spot run flat tires by a marking on the sidewall which reads "MOE" for Extended Mobility Tires".


Penny Test Tires

The Penny Test

  1. Position a penny in between the tire tread ribs.
  2. Ensure that Abe Lincoln's head is pointed downward between the tire tread.
  3. If the top of his head disappears between the tread, this tells you that you have a minimum of 2/32 of tread depth remaining and a replacement isn't needed quite yet. If Lincoln's entire head is visible, this is an easy way to tell that your tire tread is too low and your tire should be replaced.
