Car Care Tips: Give Your Tires the Royal Treatment



Have you ever considered the fact that the main thing between your car and the pavement is your tires?

Thinking of it that way can put into perspective the importance of proper tire care.

A blowout or another tire failure can put you and your passengers in serious danger.

Every driver needs to know these three tire maintenance basics.

1. Check the pressure.
Whenever you fill up your vehicle, you should also check the tire pressure.

Why so often?

Your tires can lose 1 to 2 psi per month just due to regular use.

Underinflated tires are vulnerable due to an increased amount of tire surface touching the road.

The greater friction can cause the tire to overheat, leading to blowouts, unnatural wear, and tread separation.

2. Have the tires rotated.
In order to keep the wear on your tires even, you should move the back tires to the front and vice versa every 5,000 to 7,000 miles.

Check your owner’s manual to see the recommendations for your specific vehicle.

You can also get the advice of your dealer.

3. Do a visual inspection.
You can tell a lot just by looking at your tires.

You’re looking for bulges, cuts, and anything else that doesn’t look quite right.

It’s important that you’re paying attention to the tread depth and the wear on your tires, as well.

If you hit a curb, pothole, or anything else unexpected, give your tires a check as soon as you get to your destination.
