Top Tire Care Tips for Richfield Drivers


One of the most effective ways to start taking better care of your car today is by adopting these simple tire care tips. Enjoy a more comfortable and safer ride plus the cost savings that comes with fewer tire replacements. 

Keep Tires Properly Inflated

When your tires have too much or too little air, they may not perform as reliably. In addition to problems with traction and lower fuel economy, it also causes faster wear and tear. Check your car’s owner’s manual or the sticker on the driver’s side door jamb for the proper PSI or pounds per square inch of pressure.

Monitor Tire Tread Depth

Once your tires’ treads wear down too far, they’re no longer as effective in hugging the road, especially when pavement conditions are wet or slippery, and leave you vulnerable to skidding. Check the tread with a tread depth gauge or slide a penny into the tread with Lincoln’s head upside down; if you can see the top of his head, it’s time for new tires. 

Don’t Put Off Wheel Alignment and Balancing

If your car’s wheel alignment is off or the wheels are unbalanced, it will likely affect the tires. The uneven distribution of weight and force on the wheels drives uneven and premature wear. It’s wise to get this service done whenever you get one or more new tires installed and whenever you notice the vehicle pulling to one side or vibrating when driving at high speeds.
