To help keep the vehicle in the best operating condition possible, make sure it is well maintained. If you are not sure how often to bring it in for an inspection, contact us, and we can advise you on a schedule. Between visits if you notice anything out of the norm, it is always best to bring your vehicle in. We can inspect it for any worn parts or components that may need to be replaced. On a regular basis, it is also beneficial that you inspect the vehicle for any issues. This includes the fluid levels, oil, and the tires. By keeping the tires maintained, you can help improve the comfort and reliability when you drive.
Having the Wheels Aligned
Wheel alignment and balancing are important for safety and maximum tread wear from your tires. Inspect your tires at least once a month for signs of uneven wear or damage. This includes cuts, cracks, splits, penetrations, bulges, and impacts. Uneven wear patterns may be caused by improper inflation pressure, misalignment, improper balance, or suspension neglect. If not corrected, further tire damage could occur. These conditions shorten the life of the tires and may result in loss of vehicle control.
Make sure to Rotate the Tires
Proper tire rotation is important. If you notice irregular or uneven tread wear, the tires should be rotated to alleviate the problem. Remember that it is important to check your tires and wheels for signs of possible damage, and check your vehicle for any mechanical problems and correct if necessary. You should follow the rotation pattern or procedure indicated in your limited warranty and the vehicle owners’ manual. It is recommend you rotate tires on front wheel drive vehicles or all season tires on any vehicle every five thousand to eight thousand miles to equalize the rate of wear. You should rotate the tires earlier if signs of irregular or uneven tire wear arise. Make sure to bring the vehicle in so we can inspect the tires. When recommended, we can have the tires rotated to help prolong the life of them. By rotating them, they can wear down evenly, while also lasting longer. If you need to replace a tire, it is recommended to purchase a new set. This way the tires are able to rotate and wear down as evenly as possible.
Tire Inspections are Important
By inspecting the tires on a regular basis, you can help to keep them in the best condition. Tires that are poor or wearing unevenly can result in poor fuel mileage for your vehicle. If you notice poor mileage, make sure to bring the vehicle in. We can inspect the vehicle for the source of the issue. Tires that are poorly aligned or inflated can cause the vehicle to use more fuel in order to keep them rotating correctly. By having the tires inspected regularly, you can help to save money at the pump. It will also allow you to have a comfortable ride.
