1. Check Your Air Pressure
Checking your air pressure monthly can help avoid a tire blow out. For tire related crashes, the number one cause according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is under-inflation. Under inflated tires can have negative effects on the handling of your car. One of the negative effects that it can have on your tires is uneven treat ware.
2. Visually Check Tires for Damage
Seeing that you have a flat before you leave the parking lot and drive on a busy roadway can help avoid a potentially dangerous situation. Some of the things one should check for are listed below:
- Uneven Tread
- Cracks on the sidewalls
- Signs that the tire has been punctured
If you see anything listed above, or abnormal to your vehicles tires it is always recommended to have the tires replaced or repaired before attempting to drive the vehicle. You and your passengers safety is always the number one priority.
3. Rotate Your Tires
All owners manuals will have an exact time frame for how long one should wait before rotating the tires, but we always recommend not waiting more then 6,000 miles. Rotating the tires will help with the longevity of the tire by assuring that the treat wares evenly.
Make sure that your tires are properly balanced. Misalignment of the steering or suspension can have a negative effect on your vehicle tires. This can cost you money by your tires wearing down quicker then necessary.
5. Check for size
Making sure that all tires are the same size is important. If one of your tires is even in size this can cause excess ware to the tires.
