I have driven around 9500 miles since purchasing my Bolt in December 2017. When recently getting it inspected for a DMV sticker, the service rep strongly implied I should have the tires aligned at a cost of $118, stating that the Bolt is a killer on tires.
When I spoke to the technician who performed the test, he said the tires were only minimally out of balance and I could wait until my next service call in.
When driving on the NYS Thruway, I do not notice any drift to the right or left and I try to keep it at 55-60, depending on the weather.
Question: is the Bolt a tire killer? If so, is it better to pay $118 now to extend the life and safety of the tires, or should I wait for the next service call in?
