Your tires are one of the most important parts on your car, yet are often one of the most neglected. With proper care and maintenance, you can ensure your tires will keep you going safely no matter where your travels take you.
Pressure. Properly inflated tires will help your tires last longer and keep you safer on the road. An under-inflated or over-inflated tire can cause irregular wear, loss of control, and accidents.
Alignment. Hitting a pot hole or curb can cause your tires to get out of alignment. Have your alignment periodically checked and corrected to protect your tires.
Rotation. Having your tires rotated regularly can help them wear evenly and prolong their life. The general recommendation for a tire rotation is every 5,000-8,000 miles.
Tread. Once a month or so, check your tires to make sure they have adequate tread depth. Also look for any unusual wear.
By following these four simple steps, you can be well on your way to being a safer driver. If you need any assistance inspecting your tires or need a new set, schedule an appointment today with Crown Kia of Longview.
