Increase Your Tires’ Lifespan

Good tires can be expensive, which is why it’s important to maintain them. Here’s some ways to get the most out of your tires.

Balance. Good tires have a deep tread, stable side walls and have been balanced for high speed handling. If your tires seem to bounce all over the place when you drive, they may need to be rebalanced. If you bring your car to our shop to have them rebalanced, we’ll also make sure there’s no serious issue underneath the carriage of your vehicle like a broken tie-rod or control arm.

Inflation. By keeping your tires properly inflated you can increase their lifespan, save gas mileage, improve steering and help you stop quicker.

Alignment. Alignment is critical to avoid excessive wear on either the inside or the outside of the tire. If you rotate your tires at every other regularly scheduled oil change and you notice unusual wear on the rear tires, you might have an issue with a universal joint that may need replacement.

A good spare. In the event you need to change your tires, it is important to make sure your replacement tire is also in good condition. A thorough preventative maintenance plan should also include making sure you have a reliable spare tire and all the necessary tools needed.

Tires can cost $50-$200 each. But regularly maintaining them can save you a lot of money. Taking your car into a trusted shop like ours with ASE-Certified Technicians for regular tire rotations and inspections will help you save money and keep you safely on the road!
