Watch Your Tires in Hot Weather | Wichita Auto Care

Hot pavement can be hard on tires. If you need tire care, tire repair, or new tires, see the Wichita tire specialists at Tracy’s Automotive.

Summertime has definitely arrived in Wichita with daytime temperatures in the high 90s with temperatures expected to reach triple digits by the end of this week. With those sweltering temperatures, the impulse is to stay home and stay cool in air-conditioned comfort. But, unfortunately, it’s necessary to get outside and go places – like work.

Driving in hot weather can be miserable. It’s also miserable for your car, especially its tires.

“Whether you’re trekking cross-country or simply to and from work, the more heat your tires are exposed to could mean potential trouble on the road,” says. “The friction from your tires rolling, turning and braking combined with higher pavement temperatures and worn tires can lead to tire blowouts.” offers these summer tire safety tips:

  1. Check your tire tread before you get on the road (even if you’re sticking around town). If the tread is worn down, it’s time for a new set of tires.
  2. Check your tire pressure at least once a month to make sure your tires are properly inflated. “Low tire pressure leads to decreased steering and braking control, poor gas mileage, excessive tire wear and the possibility of tire failure,” says.
  3. Rotate your tires at least every 6,000 miles, sooner if you see irregular or uneven wear.
  4. Check your spare, if you have one, to make sure it’s ready in case you need it.

If you’re not sure about the condition of your tires, it’s time to see a tire expert like those at Tracy’s Automotive.
