Expired | Maple Street Tires

As winter winds down, it’s getting time to change from winter tires to summer tires. Tracy’s Automotive on Maple Street can help you with that.

Opening night for the Wind Surge is just around the corner. It’s yet another indication that spring is here and the harsh winter cold and snow is gone until next winter. The disappearance of ice and snow means it’s time to switch your tires out to all weather or summer tires that are better suited to hot roads.

While you’re switching out your tires, don’t forget your spare.

“Spare tires fall into the category of things you forget about until you desperately need them. But that’s not exactly the safest approach,  lifehacker.com explains. “Believe it or not, spare tires do expire, and require regular maintenance. In other words, if you want yours to be ready-to-go when you need it, you’re going to have to put in a little bit of effort.”

Lifehacker.com explains further, saying, “In order for a spare tire to last up to a decade, you’ll have to check on it periodically—both its condition, and the tire pressure. According to AAA, this means looking for signs of visible damage on the tire, like punctures, cracks in the sidewall, impact bulges, and dry rot (which is what happens when oils and other chemicals in the tire’s rubber dry out).

Regularly checking your tire pressure isn’t only important to ensure that it’s ready to roll if/when you need it, but low tire pressure can also contribute to dry rot. Because your spare is so easy to forget about, AAA recommends testing it whenever you test the four tires that are in use, and add air as necessary. You can find the amount of air your tires need either in the owners manual, or on a sticker on the driver’s side door jamb.”

Or, you can make it really easy and have the WIchita tire specialists at Tracy’s Automotive check on your spare while they’re switching out your winter tires. Tracy’s Automotive can also supply you with new tires if needed. Tracy’s carries all sizes, style and brand of tire to fit any vehicle or driving need.
