Your tires are your connection between your car and the road. Keeping these in optimal condition is in your best interest for both the functionality and safety of your vehicle. An important tip for your tires is to keep them adequately inflated and to consistently check the air pressure levels. The suggested air pressure can be found on the sidewalls of your tires. Keeping these properly inflated can improve gas mileage as well as help protect against flats while you are driving. Keep in mind air pressure is also affected by outside temperature; the rule of thumb is 1 psi change for every 10 degrees Fahrenheit temperature change.
How We Can Help
We offer tire rotations for the wheels of your car. The purpose of this practice is to equalize the tread wear and is crucial to maximize the life of your tires and their inherent investment. Generally it is suggested that your tires be rotated every 6,000 miles of driving, however check your owner’s manual to see what your car’s manufacturer suggests. When you get your tires rotated, it is also a great opportunity to have your wheels balanced, another practice to further prolong the life of your current tires.
