Keep your tires well maintained for safety and longevity

All-season tires

You need proper maintenance to ensure that your tires will last a long time, at least as long until they are worn out. Here are a few things that are good to follow regardless if you have a car or an SUV and if you have all-season tires or winter tires.

Keep the tires well inflated

Under or overinflated tires causes a lot of damage to tires. It also causes the tires to wear out prematurely. Under inflated tires is the most common and it can damage the sidewalls of the tires if they are severely underinflated. It also causes the vehicle to consumer more fuel, so it should be taken seriously.

Measure the tread depth

If you are below 5/32 inches, it is time to change the tires to a new set. It is always preferred to change all four tires at the same time and by rotating the tires you can achieve this. Rotate the tires when the difference between the front and rear differs by more than 5/64-7/64 inches.

Check the tread pattern

Check that you have normal and even wear across the tires, if you notice uneven wear it could be that the alignment is off, the tires aren’t balanced or that your shock absorbers are worn out, so visit your car service station and have them look at your car.

Visual inspection

Check the tires for any visual damages, if you see any cuts or cracks then take it to the tyre shop to get an expert opinion on it.
