Tire Maintenance

How well do you take care of your tires? If you care about your safety, and about saving money, it’s important to understand how tires affect your vehicle’s performance. Here are some tips regarding tire maintenance.
📌Check the pressure of all tires, including your spare, at least once a month when the tires are “cold,” meaning that the car hasn’t been driven for at least three hours.
📌Check your tire’s tread at least once a month when you’re checking their pressure. Tires have built-in “treadwear indicators,” which are raised sections that run in between the tire’s tread. When the tread is worn down so that it’s level with the tread indicator, it’s time to replace your tires.
📌Tire balancing ensures your wheels rotate properly and don’t cause the vehicle to shake or vibrate. New tires should always be balanced when installed.
📌Rotating your tires can help reduce irregular wear, which will help your tires last longer and maintain the fuel efficiency of your tires. If recommended by the vehicle manufacturer, rotate tires every 5,000 to 8,000 miles or sooner if uneven wear appears.
