The winter weather and temperatures will affect the air pressure of the tires. As it becomes colder out, the air pressure will start to decrease from the tires of the car. This can cause problems because the tires will not be properly inflated to the correct amount that they should be. If you start to notice this happening often, make sure to schedule an appointment to bring the vehicle in. Doing so can help you save time, money, and stress in the long run.
If you need the proper air pressure amount, make sure to check the sticker on the inside door jamb. You can also find this information in the vehicle owner’s manual. This way, you will know the correct amount of air needed for each tire. As tires are used and wear, they will start to show signs of damage. Make sure to check the tires completely and look for any signs of problems or issues. When you do this, also check for how the tread is wearing. If the tread is low or uneven, make an appointment with us. We can check the proper tread wear.
Based on how many miles you drive or how often, you will want to have your tires aligned or rotated. Having them aligned will make sure the tires wear correctly, the entire tire. When tires are rotated, then it will help to keep the tires wearing evenly. If one side of the tire is worn, having them rotated can help decrease the chance of further wear happening to that one spot. It will also help prolong the life of the tires of your vehicle. When checking the tires, always remember the spare. If a tire is damaged, you will need to rely on the spare. So it is important that the spare tire is always in the best condition possible.
