Everyone knows that tires play an important role in your vehicle’s handling and performance. But many people forget that proper tire maintenance, along with monitoring tire pressure, tread depth and performing regular tire rotations, are all safety issues. Consider these Car Care Council statistics:
To help keep you from landing on the wrong side of these statistics, our technicians are committed to proper tire maintenance. Remember, tire pressure should be checked at least once a month. Well maintained tires help ensure you’re receiving the proper level of traction and road-hugging performance; as well as the ability to funnel water out from under the tire to reduce hydroplaning. Rotating your tires can help even out tire wear rates by mounting each tire in as many of the vehicle’s wheel positions as possible.
Proper inflation, regular rotation, and frequent evaluation are your best defense against premature tire failure. Worn, damaged, or improperly inflated tires may cause longer braking distances, decreased fuel mileage, and even alter your vehicle’s ride and handling. Always follow your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations for proper tire size, inflation rates, and rotation intervals. Frequent tire evaluation can spot tire wear or damage caused by road debris, alignment conditions, or improper tire maintenance.
