Extend the Life of Your Tires: Inspecting & Maintaining Your Tires

It’s easy to forget about vehicle maintenance, especially for your vehicle’s tires. However, you can prevent your tires from wearing out too quickly by giving them the proper amount of attention. If your tires need a little TLC, we have several solutions for when and how to care for them. 

Difficulty With Steering

If your tires aren’t aired up correctly, you may have more difficulty turning or keeping your steering wheel straight. We recommend drivers check tire pressure monthly to reduce the likelihood of a blowout or accident. To find your tire pressure at home, you can use a gauge to see if your tires have the correct pounds per square inch (PSI). Most tires need anywhere from 30-35 PSI. However, you can check your driver’s manual to determine how much air your tires need. 

Your Vehicle Drifts to One Side

Your tires could be misaligned if your steering wheel drifts left or right. If you don’t maintain your tire’s alignment, your vehicle can have difficulty braking and steering, shake, vibrate, or can even burn more fuel, costing you more money in the long run. Drivers can ensure their tires are aligned by scheduling a service appointment with their local dealership for an inspection. 

Loss of Traction

If you notice a loss of traction when turning or driving, especially in rainy weather, your tires may have low traction. When your tires don’t have enough tread, they struggle to grip the road, increasing your likelihood of an accident. A standard method for checking tire tread is to place a penny upside down between your tire’s tread groove. If you can see the entire head, your traction is too low. Your dealership has the proper tires for your car, so consult with their maintenance team to find the correct replacements. 

How can you take care of your tires? To take care of your tires, we recommend visiting your dealership for frequent tire inspections. Our service professionals will examine your tires for damages, tire tread depth, and inflation.
