4 Tips to Get the Most Mileage Out of Your Tires

Unfortunately, tires can’t last forever but with proper care and routine maintenance, you can maximize their life! To avoid premature tire wear, we suggest the following tips:

1. Regular Tire Rotation: Have your tires rotated every 5,000 to 8,000 miles, depending on your vehicle owner manual and driving habits. A tire rotation is important because each tire carries a different amount of weight, making them wear at different rates. By rotating them, you even out those differences.

2. Regular Air Pressure Check: Improper air pressure can affect your gas mileage and cause premature tire wear. Your tires’ recommended air pressure should be listed on a sticker inside the driver’s door or in your vehicles owner manual.

3. Periodic Tire Balance: If you feel your tires ‘wobble’ or notice your steering wheel vibrating, you should consider having your tires balanced. An imbalance in your tires can lead to excess pressure exerted on them which over time can result in excessive wear.

4. Regular Wheel Alignment: If you notice your car ‘pulling’ in one direction or your steering wheel off center when driving straight, you should have a Wheel Alignment done. Improper wheel alignment will cause your tires to wear unevenly and prematurely.

These tips will result in longer lasting tires, saving you time and money!
