Now is a great time to inspect the tires on your vehicle. This should include all four regular tires, as well as the spare tire. You can also bring your vehicle in so we can inspect it, as well as the tires, for you. The tires are the most important part of the vehicle because they are the only thing to make direct contact with the surface of the road.
If you start to notice issues with the tires, make sure to bring the vehicle in as soon as possible. This will help prevent further damage to the vehicle and tire. It will also prevent a costly repair bill in the future. The first thing to check is the air pressure. Tires that are properly inflated can be driven on much longer. It will also help to make your vehicle fuel-efficient. Tires that are under inflated will be more prone to blowing out when you are driving on them. If the tires are over inflated, they might be more likely to pick up sharp objects on the surface of the road. Bring the vehicle in, and we can inspect the air pressure for you. We can even check the spare tire.
Checking the how the tread is wearing should be done when you inspect the air pressure. All you need to do is place a penny in one of the tread grooves. If you can see the top of Lincoln’s head, then there is not a lot of tread left. If the tread is wearing unevenly, the tires may need to be rotated or aligned correctly. By bringing the vehicle in, we can inspect the tires and what condition they are wearing in. We can also recommend the best solution you have to fix them, so your vehicle is safe and reliable when you drive.
