One of the most important things you can do to help maintain the tires is to inspect them frequently. By doing this, you can help to catch the first onset of premature wear or damage. Look for any signs of debris, cracks, or small punctures. Also check for bulges or blisters in the rubber of the tire. If there are any signs of damage, make sure to bring your vehicle in as soon as possible. This can help to prevent the tires from failing completely at an unexpected time.
Having the proper air pressure can help to keep the tires at their specified rating. It can also help to increase the performance of the tires and vehicle. Keeping the correct amount of air pressure in them can help to prevent premature wear. Tires that are under inflated can wear at a faster rate than what they typically should. They can also have uneven patterns when wearing. This is because too much rubber will be connecting with the road. Tires that are over inflated will wear only in the center of the tire. This can also increase the chance of the tread wearing down and causing a potential issue in the long run.
Also make sure to bring your vehicle in when recommended for the tires to be balanced. This can help to make sure each tire is able to maintain its proper shape and design. It can also help to prevent any unnecessary wear and tear that the tire may have. Having the tires balanced can also help promote a smoother ride. It can also help to keep the other tires from being affected if a tire becomes out of balance. This can help ensure that the tires can last as long as they need to.
Driving conditions can vary. The best way to make sure that all four tires wear at the same rate is to have them rotated based on a schedule we recommend. By having the tires rotated, this can help prevent a tire taking on too much wear from repetitive tasks. This could be from tight turns or frequents stops.
Tires should be aligned as well as being balanced and rotated. Aligned tires can last longer due to the fact that they will be working together. It helps to decrease the chance that they pull or wobble when rotating. Aligning the tires can help prevent the chance for uneven wear to happen with the tires.
