Keep an Eye on Your Tires | Wichita Auto Care

Tracy’s Automotive is open and, to make things easier for both essential workers and those confined to their homes, we’ll come pick up your car and return it to you – completely cleaned – when we’re done.

Essential workers and those who are confined to their homes have something in common: They need to make sure their cars are running and ready to go when they’re needed. That’s especially true of your tires.

It’s pretty obvious if you’re an essential worker that you need to make sure your tires are in shape to get you to and from work. Checking your tires may be less obvious if you’re mostly hanging around home. But it’s true,: Let your car sit for long periods without moving it and your tires can develop flat spots. The rubber in your tires ages whether you’re driving or not. And air seeps out of tires even when your car isn’t being driven.

So it makes sense to keep an eye on the condition of your tires whether you’re an essential worker or staying at home to work or weather the COVID-19 storm. 

“Checking your tires is like going to the dentist,” says Johnny Unser, five-time veteran of the Indy 500 in a Geico Insurance blog. “It’s something we don’t do often enough, that we put off until we absolutely have to.”

Geico recommends you check your tires at least once a month for bulges, gouges or cracks; tread wear; and/or tire pressure. If you’re still driving, you should be alert for any vibrations. If you see or feel any of those signs, you might need to put air in your tires at the very least. Or, you might need new tires.

If you’re not sure whether you need new tires, your best bet is to consult a tire pro like the tire experts at Tracy’s Automotive. Tracy’s Automotive’s auto care technicians can tell you if it’s time for new tires. If it is, Tracy’s Automotive carries all brands, sizes and style of tire to fit any vehicle or driving need.

You don’t even have to get your car to Tracy’s Automotive for an evaluation or repair. Tracy’s Automotive will pick up your car at your home or workplace and return it to you – fully cleaned – when it’s serviced. We’re here to help you get through this difficult time.
