Wheel or Tire maintenance is important. Think of your vehicle’s tires as the “shoes” of your vehicle. It wouldn’t be able to get very far without them. So how do you maintain your vehicle’s “shoes”?
We are sharing 3 general tips for maintaining your vehicle’s tires.
Tip #1 – Inspect, Inspect, Inspect
Before you get into your vehicle you should check your tires but we understand time isn’t always on our side. What is beneficial is checking your tires minimum every month. Inspecting your tires for any punctures and tread wear can reduce any risks that could potentially lead to an accident.
Tip #2 – Tire Pressure is Crucial
Your tire pressure can fluctuate depending on weather conditions. Most vehicles have a sweet spot of 33 – 35 psi but always double check with your owner’s manual.
Tip #3 – Rotation Keeps Things Even
- Rotate your tires every 6,000 to 8,000 miles. This will help increase the life of your tires maximizing traction while driving which can assist in preventing accidents.
