The tires of your vehicle should be inspected on a regular basis. This will help you to be aware of any issues they might start to have when you drive. By following the regular maintenance schedule, you can help to ensure that the tires are able to be in the best condition. You will need to check that they are properly inflated to the correct air pressure. Tires that are too low will have a greater chance of blowing out when you are driving. You may also notice if the tires are over inflated. This can cause an issue because they can pick up sharp objects on the road.
As the tires age, they will start to show signs of wear and tear. This can be based on how many miles and how often you drive too. The type of road you drive on can also affect the tires of your vehicle. If you travel on gravel roads, the tires will rotate on a rougher surface. Be aware of any roads with potholes or damage, as these can also affect the tires of your vehicle.
You will also want to rotate the tires when it is recommended. Rotations can help the tires wear evenly. It can also help them to last as long as possible. If a tire is wearing down on one side, and you rotate it, then you can balance out the wear for it. If you are not sure how often this should be done, we can advise you on a schedule. Having tires that are not worn and have proper tread will help you handle the winter roads better as well. Since roads are slick in the winter, you will want to check the weather before you leave. This can help you prepare for what the weather and road conditions may be.
