Tire Maintenance & Money-Saving Tips
Tires are a long-term investment. Though the initial cost of new treads can be a bit deflating, the good news is that tires are actually very inexpensive to take care of. In fact, proper tire maintenance can save you a good bit of money in the long run. The following tips will help you extend the life of your tires and save some dough
1. Check your tire pressure monthly.
Improperly inflated tires are unsafe as well as costly. Overinflated tires are an accident waiting to happen, and under inflated tires can damage your fuel economy.
2. Ensure your car is properly aligned.
Do this every time you get new tires to help ensure even wear and optimal handling.
3. Rotate your tires consistently.
Regular tire rotation helps promote even wear and longer tread life.
4. Inspect your tread often.
Worn tread can cause your tires to struggle to gain traction and come to a complete stop. Be sure to check your tread frequently to make sure you’re in the optimal range of 6/32″ or more.
