When owning a vehicle, the tires are some of the most important features on it. This is because with poor tires, your vehicle will have poor fuel mileage and be less efficient. Make sure to have the tires inspected regularly by us so that they are in the most efficient condition possible. We can check the air pressure, tread wear, and overall condition of them. If you notice an issue between visits, schedule an appointment so the issue can be fixed before it becomes a larger problem.
The first thing to inspect on the tires includes the air pressure. By having the tires properly inflated, you can prevent the chance of the tires blowing out from being low on air pressure. If the tires are over inflated, they can pick up sharp objects that are on the road. If you notice that the tires need to have more air on a regular basis, it could be a sign there is a leak or puncture. Make sure to bring the vehicle in if there is an issue. We can inspect the tire for any damage that it might have. If you are not sure how much air should be in the tires, you can contact us or look in the vehicle owner’s manual. Check the tires regularly, as the cold winter temperatures can allow them to reduce the amount of air in them.
Also remember to check the tread wear on the tires. The tread is important because it helps to maintain control of the vehicle, as well as the stability. With poor tread, the vehicle will be harder to control on wet or slick roads. You can see if the tread is too low by just using a penny. Place the penny upside down in the tread of each tire. If you can see the top of Lincoln’s head then the tread is not at the ideal amount. If the tread is wearing unevenly from tire to tire, this can also become an issue. We can inspect the tread and the tires to see if an alignment should be done. A tire rotation can also benefit how the tread is wearing on the tires. By having them rotated, the tread will wear down equally from the inside and outside and from tire to tire. Having the tires inspected can help to provide a comfortable and enjoyable ride.
