Prolonging your tires starts with proper maintenance. Tires that have been well maintained not only promote longer tread-life, they substantially improve your safety.
● Tire Pressure –
○ Correct tire pressure is essential for reliable handling, effective traction, and optimal tire life. Properly inflated tires will assure that the vehicle’s weight is equally distributed, resulting in even wear. Factors such as temperature change and leaks can affect tire pressure, so it is important to check it often.
● Tire Rotation –
○ Tire rotation is a key factor in assuring even tread wear. Depending on the type of vehicle and your specific tread wear pattern, different types of rotational patterns will be most beneficial. Having your tires rotated by automotive professionals will provide this service as well as the opportunity to detect other issues before them become serious problems.
● Wheel Alignment –
○ Problems resulting from improper wheel alignment include poor vehicle handling and steering, as well as uneven and rapid tread wear. Many factors can affect alignment, including a minor accident, which may not cause visible body damage. Checking your alignment regularly will prevent a host of problems down the road.
