Check your tire pressure once-a-month. The proper PSI for your vehicle will likely be labeled on the side of the door.
Check and adjust your tire pressure after drastic weather changes. Increases in heat or cold affect tire pressure.
Test your tread monthly with the “quarter test.” Insert a quarter into the most worn groove of a tire. If the top of Washington’s head can be seen, start looking for a new tire.
Tires with proper inflation and tread are more fuel-efficient.
Every vehicle varies, but tires should normally be rotated once every 5,000 to 7,000 miles.
New tires go on the back axle. This helps drivers maintain control on slippery roads
When a new tire is installed (or an old tire after a puncture repair), a professional balancing is needed to prevent uneven tire wear or damaging vibration.
Misalignment affects tire tread, fuel efficiency, and driving performance.
If your car pulls to the left or right, a professional wheel alignment may be necessary.
