TIRE PRESSURE

Air is a gas, expanding when heated and contracting when cooled. For most of North America, fall and early winter are especially important times for checking tire pressure on your Cadillac vehicle. As the ambient temperature falls, tire pressure goes down. A good rule of thumb: with every 10 degrees Fahrenheit of temperature change, tire pressure changes about 1 psi–higher as temperatures rise, lower as they fall.

UNDERSTANDING THE TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (TPMS)

The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) helps with keeping you updated on the vehicle’s tire pressure. The TPMS works by sending a signal from the pressure sensor, located in your vehicle’s wheel, to the instrument control panel which alerts you when the tire pressure is low. It is recommended that a trained professional inspect and, if necessary, service your TPMS to help ensure it is working properly.  

INDICATION THAT AIR PRESSURE IS LOW OR TPMS HAS MALFUNCTIONED

If the Tire Pressure Monitor light illuminates and stays solid with a Check Tire Pressure, Low Tire Pressure, or Add Air to Tire message, check and adjust all tire air pressures to the recommended levels.

 

If the Tire Pressure Monitor light appears as a blinking yellow lamp for more than one minute and stays solid, diagnostic service is needed.

SPEED RATINGS

WHAT ARE TIRE SPEED RATINGS?

Tire speed ratings indicate the speed your tire can safely maintain over time. The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) set the ratings scale below. On the sidewall of every tire, you'll find one of these tire speed rating codes below:

TYPES OF TIRE WEAR  

There are many factors that can cause tire wear, such as your driving style and tire maintenance habits. Tire replacement is absolutely needed when the tread wear indicators appear. A tire’s built-in tread wear indicators look like narrow strips of smooth rubber across the tread and become visible as the tire surface wears.

TIRE ROTATION AND ALIGNMENT

WHEN SHOULD TIRES BE ROTATED?

Tire rotation is the practice of moving your vehicle’s wheels and tires from one position to another to help promote even tire wear. Even tire wear can help with the life of your vehicle’s tires. It is important to rotate your tires at the intervals recommended by your Owner’s Manual.

 

Check your Owner's Manual for more information.  

DO I NEED A WHEEL ALIGNMENT?

If your vehicle is misaligned, it can cause your tires to wear unevenly, and you may experience handling problems such as pulling or abnormal vibration.

 

Tires and wheels are aligned and balanced at the factory to help provide the best overall performance. Consider a wheel alignment check if there is unusual tire wear or if your vehicle is significantly pulling to one side or the other.

 

A tire that is out of balance often affects ride quality and can shorten the life of tires, shocks, and other suspension components. If the vehicle vibrates when driving on a smooth road, the tires may need to be rebalanced.

 

Check your Owner's Manual for more information.

When to replace your tires

Understanding proper tire maintenance, selection and safety for your Cadillac vehicle starts with knowing the basics. Tread wear indicators appear when the tires only have 2/32 inch or less of tread remaining. Other warning signs include bulges and splits, cracked sidewalls, visible tire cord and punctures.

Tire safety and maintenance

It’s a good idea to check your tires at least once a month when the tires are cold, meaning the vehicle has not been driven for at least three hours or no more than one mile. If your Tire Pressure Monitoring System light comes on, you can bring your vehicle to the Certified Service experts for assistance.

Types of tires

Your Cadillac tires were specifically chosen for your vehicle to help provide a safe ride in a variety of driving and weather conditions. Tire performance varies based on conditions, so it’s important to understand the differences in how each type works.

All-Season

All-Season Tires

All-season tires are for year-round use and feature a blend of technologies that make use of different compounds and detailed tread configurations. They are designed for most driving conditions such as snow, rain, heat, cold, etc. These tires offer good overall performance on most road surfaces and in most weather conditions.

All-Terrain

All-Terrain Tires

All-terrain tires provide good performance on most road surfaces, in most weather conditions and for off-road driving. The tread pattern on these tires may wear more quickly than others. Consider rotating these tires more frequently than the recommended 7,500 miles if you notice irregular wear.

Performance

Performance Tires

Performance tires are designed for enhanced handling under demanding circumstances and generally have high-speed ratings with a low aspect ratio for improved control. These tires are not built for winter conditions.

Run-Flat

Run-Flat Tires

Run-flat tires can be driven on with no air pressure. There is no need to stop to change the tire. Continue driving, but not too far or too fast. Driving on the tire may not be possible if there is permanent damage. To prevent permanent damage, keep speeds below 50 mph.

Snow/Winter

Snow/Winter Tires

Winter tires are designed for increased traction on snow- and ice-covered roads. With winter tires, there may be decreased dry-road traction, increased road noise and shorter tread life. After changing to winter tires, watch for changes in the vehicle’s handling and braking.

If you decide to use snow/winter tires:
 
  • Use tires of the same brand and tread type on all four wheel positions
  • Use only radial ply tires of the same size, load range and speed rating as the original equipment tires
  • Winter tires with the same speed rating as the Original Equipment tires may not be available for H, V, W, Y, X, Z and R speed-rated tires. If winter tires with a lower speed rating are chosen, never exceed the tires’ maximum speed capability
Summer-Only

Summer-Only Tires

Summer tires have a special tread and compound that are optimized for maximum dry- and wet-road performance. This special tread and compound will decrease performance in cold climates and on ice and snow.

NOTE: Do not use summer-only tires in winter conditions, as it would adversely affect vehicle safety, performance and durability. Use only GM-approved tire and wheel combinations. Unapproved combinations may change the vehicle’s performance characteristics.
