Tips to make your tires last longer
Check out these tips to help extend the life of your tires!
- Regularly check tire pressure. One of the easiest ways to make sure your tires are in good shape is to check your tire air pressure monthly.
- Follow the recommendation for tire rotations. Because most vehicles use primarily one or two wheels to move the vehicle forward, getting your tires rotated every 5,000 miles or so helps keep your tire tread levels even, helping all of your tires last longer.
- Have your wheels balanced. Every wheel has a heavy spot in it, so making sure your mechanic keeps an eye on it and balances out that weight is important to the longevity of your tires.
- Check your tire alignment. Having misaligned tires can reduce your fuel efficiency and make your treads wear out faster. If you feel like your vehicle pulls to the left or right, or you hit a curb or a pothole, you should probably get your alignment checked out.
