Tires are one of the most important items on your car. You can make them last longer with regular Wichita tire care.
When you started your car after skating at the Ice Pond yesterday, the tire pressure warning light came on and didn’t go off. You hope it doesn’t mean that you have a leak because your tires are worn out and need replacing. Tires can be expensive to replace and you’re just getting over the holiday spending.
You do need to get your tires checked out to make sure there’s nothing wrong. It could be that one or more tires is low on air simply from normal wear and tear. But we hear you when you get concerned that you might have to buy a whole new set of tires.
That’s certainly going to happen at some point. But there are ways to help prolong the life of your tires.
“There are ways to protect your tire investment, wherever you fall on the scale. Improving your driving habits comes first,” auto.howstuffworkds.com says. “Fast turns, fast starts and fast stops all cause more tire wear, as does speeding, which heats the rubber and causes faster breakdown. And of course, the obvious: avoid obstacles like curbs, potholes, logs and rocks. Even if these don’t puncture a tire, constant scraping against a cement curb or slamming into potholes can wear down the rubber. It’ll give out eventually — probably sooner rather than later.”
Tire care also counts.
“To get the most miles out of your tires — and minimize those noises and vibrations — keep an eye on air pressure, alignment, and rotation,” auto.howstuffworks.com adds.
What does that mean? Regular maintenance. When you take your car to a trusted Wichita auto care pro for its regular maintenance, that pro should also rotate your tires. Rotating involves removing the tires from the car and placing them on different wheels. That means they’ll wear more evenly. Taking the tires off the car will give your Wichita tire care pro a chance to check your tires up close for wear, cuts, cracks, or anything that might need repair or indicate you really do need a new tire.
