The Importance of Tire Maintenance

Proper tire maintenance is one of the most important things you can do to your car to ensure a smooth and safe driving experience. Well-maintained tires will have a significant impact on the way your driving style, grip of the wheel, stability and engine load. You should always make sure that your tires have the specific requirements to meet the size and load of your vehicle. You should let a professional mechanic assist you in selecting the right tires for your vehicle, as you should change them after a certain amount of miles. The reason is that your tires will build a certain amount of wear and tear to them, which can cause a variety of problems to your steering abilities and overall balance of the car. Here are a few helpful tips you can take to ensure that your tires are always well-maintained:

  • Balancing & Alignment – You should get your wheel alignments and balancing check every month or after a certain period of miles. It not only helps prevent premature tearing of wheels, but also eliminates vibration and protects suspension and load system of the vehicle. A reliable mechanic can perform a complete wheel alignment assessment on your vehicle.  They will be able to do a full wheel rotation as well.
  • Constant Pressure Check – It is very important to get your car tire pressure checked at least once a week, especially before you hit the highway for  a long trip. A tire can lose up to half of its air pressure and may not look flat. A constant pressure check helps increase the life of tires and improves overall functioning of the vehicle.
  • Tread – The deeper the tread is, the more grip you get while driving. Advanced wear of cheap tires can reduce the overall ability of the wheel to provide effective grip in adverse conditions. Make sure you get your tires checked periodically for uneven wear. Look for the sign of damages, high and low areas on the wheels or unusually smooth areas.
