Tire Service



At Karl Knauz BMW, we think that it always is a smart practice to check how your tires are holding up at regular and frequent intervals. This simple step can help you prevent issues such as blowouts and flats and give you the foresight you need to fix or replace your tires before a problem arises! Our team also wants to make sure our clients know that Karl Knauz BMW, your BMW dealership near Chicago, is their top destination for new tires in Lake Bluff.  Not only is it crucial to periodically inspect your tires, but it is equally important to outfit your BMW with tires recommended by the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM). The reason is because the OEM engineered your BMW with certain specifications in mind. Our staff at Karl Knauz BMW knows that OEM-recommended tires are the ideal choice for your BMW. Every month, we make coupons available to you so that you will always have the best prices for tires. Here at Karl Knauz BMW, we are happy to say that we are your local tire professionals and will guarantee that you will never have a typical dealership experience when you visit us. Our prices for tires are entirely competitive with what you will find at your local tire stores or at nationwide tire chains but we offer best-in-class service

Four-wheel alignments at Knauz BMW include the following:

  • Mounting your vehicle to our state-of-the-art four-wheel alignment device

  • Determining the right position and angle of each wheel, paying attention to the three angles, camber, toe and caster

  • Making any necessary adjustments to each individual wheel and suspension corner

  • Complimentary multi-point inspection

  • Complimentary vehicle wash

  • Taking your BMW for a road test for completion verification

The suspension, tires and wheels for your BMW are exactly designed to ensure you have a smooth and enjoyable ride, all while experiencing a seamless handling experience. When you come across different road conditions such as potholes, your alignment possibly could fall out of the factory specifications. That situation can lead to problems like a reduction in comfort, more exterior noise and more difficulties with your general steering and handling. Your wheel alignment is controlled by three settings: caster, toe and camber. The caster angle of most vehicles will not stray from the factory specifications, but the camber and toe may be affected the more you drive. The angles of these settings must be within an almost exact fraction of a degree to be properly aligned. That is why we recommend that you visit Karl Knauz BMW, your local BMW dealership near Chicago, and guarantee your wheels are in their best condition.

Tire rotations at Knauz BMW include the following:

  • Rotating the wheels and tires from the front to the rear of the vehicle

  • Complimentary multi-point inspection

  • Complimentary vehicle wash

Our representatives at Karl Knauz BMW want our clients to know that the weight of your BMW is typically not distributed evenly over your tires. Depending on your vehicle, either the front or rear tires might be worn down faster. Other factors, like aggressive driving patterns and tough road conditions, also can speed up that process. That is why rotating your tires on a regular basis will assist in slowing down the deterioration of your tires. You will find that you will save money, time and preserve the general capability of your BMW with regular alignments. Here at Karl Knauz BMW, your local BMW dealership near Chicago, we encourage you to schedule an annual tire alignment and come to us when you are ready to replace your set of tires. Our highly trained staff is standing by to diagnose, analyze and repair all of the problems that you are having. We invite everyone to contact us with any inquiries or set up an appointment by calling 866-926-5967 or by visiting our website.
