To help make sure your vehicle is safe and reliable, it is important to inspect the tires on a regular basis. This can help to ensure they are in the best condition possible when you travel. As the tires rotate, they will be able to use the same amount of tread and traction with the surface of the road. If you notice an issue when driving, make sure to bring the vehicle in as soon as you can. This can help prevent a much larger issue from forming in the long run. If you feel or smell anything out of the norm, immediate attention should be given to the vehicle. This can also help from other parts wearing out sooner than they should as well. If an issue is ignored, it can result in a costly repair bill when it comes time to repair it. Keeping the tires in a good condition can help your vehicle to be safe and reliable this summer. If you are unsure on the tire condition, bring the vehicle in and we can inspect it for you.

The Tread should be inspected on the Tires

tire-repair-5One of the first things that should be checked on the tires is the tread wear. This helps to alert you to how the tires are wearing. If the tread is uneven, it is an indication that the tires are not rotating as they should. The tread should be worn the same around the entire tire. If you notice that the tread is not even, make sure to bring the vehicle in as soon as possible. The same is also true if you notice any flat spots or large areas of worn tread. This could indicate a larger issue may have formed with the tires. By bringing the vehicle in, we can inspect the tires to make sure they are aligned and positioned correctly. This can help to make sure the vehicle is as efficient as possible when you drive.

Check the Air Pressure on the tires

The air pressure on the tires is another important thing to inspect. This is important because a tire that is over inflated or under inflated will not rotate as efficiently as it otherwise should. If the tire is under inflated, it can cause the vehicle to have poor fuel efficiency. It may also increase the chance of it blowing out. If the tire is over inflated, it is more likely to pick up any sharp objects in the road. It will also cause bumpy rides when you are driving. This is because the tires will have less contact with the road.

Remember to check the Spare Tire

Besides inspecting the tires regularly, also make sure to check the spare tire. This tire is important incase another one goes flat or becomes too damaged to drive on. By inspecting the spare tire you can ensure that it will be ready to use if you need it. It is also important to check the tread and air pressure on it. The overall condition of the tire should also be inspected, so it is in the best possible condition when you may need to drive on it.
