Tire care is an important part of car ownership. Tracy’s Automotive can help you maintain your tires.
There are many things to do – from visits to art museums to a Wichita Thunder game – this weekend but instead you see your time being taken up with a “honey do” list that includes such chores as straightening up the garage and checking your car’s tires while you’re at it.
Neither of those chores are much fun. But at least one – checking your tires – can save you money and future grief by preventing damage to your car.
That’s right, regular tire care and tire maintenance has several benefits, according to calrecycle.ca.gov. Among those benefits: buying fewer tires, spending less on gas, and avoiding accidents caused by premature tire failure.
Calrecycle.ca.gov says, “Well maintained tires last longer, which saves you money and sends fewer tires into the waste stream.”
The site offers these tips to help you maximize the life of your tires:
“Maintain Proper Pressure. In its nationwide survey, the [National Highway and Transportation Administration] found that tires lose about 1.78 percent of their tread life for each psi the tire is underinflated. Therefore tires underinflated by 10 psi lose about 17.8 percent of their life miles potential.
“Balance Your Tires. An unbalanced wheel and tire assembly may create an annoying vibration when you drive on a smooth road and may result in irregular tread wear.
“Keep Your Tires Aligned. Misalignment of wheels in the front or rear, bent wheels, worn bushings, and other mechanical problems cause uneven and rapid tread wear and should be corrected by a qualified mechanic. These systems should be checked periodically as specified by the vehicle owner’s manual or whenever you have an indication of trouble.
‘Rotate Your Tires Regularly. The purpose of regularly rotating tires is to achieve more uniform wear for all tires on a vehicle. Tires should be rotated approximately every 6,000 miles, or sooner if signs of irregular or uneven tire wear appear. If your tires show uneven wear, ask your tire dealer to check for and correct any misalignment, imbalance or other mechanical problem involved before rotation.”
