Show Some Love to Your Tires

Your tires need a little tender loving care in order to perform to the best of their ability, and when it comes to safety, tire maintenance is at the top of the list. Tire failure is one of the leading causes of most accidents but being proactive and routinely inspecting your tires can help you avoid disaster. You should know how to check tire pressure, how to measure tread depth, and how often you should perform routine tire maintenance. Here are some helpful tire safety tips:

Tire Pressure

  • Tire pressure is one of the most important aspects of tire maintenance. You should check it at least once a month using a tire gauge.
  • Check to make sure your tires aren't over or underinflated. You can find the correct PSI for your tires on the door jamb.
  • You should always check the tire pressure when the tires are cold or haven't been driven on in at least three hours.

A great way to check the tread depth of your tires is too look at the wear bars. Wear bars are visible at about 2/32nds tread depth and let you know that you need to get new tires. If you have questions about your tires or need your tires to be serviced contact us today to schedule an appointment.
