Technician Filling Up Car Tire

Most Columbus, GA drivers prefer to avoid tire replacements when they’re not necessary. Who would want to get new tires every few months? If you’re wondering how to make your tires last longer, you’ve come to the right place. There are certain precautions you will want to take to ensure a longer lifespan, including periodic inspections. Consider these tips from our Service Center to promote tire health!

Tire Care Tips

Want to ensure a long life for your tires? You can always have long life tires installed for your Auburn commutes, but there are some simple maintenance tasks to keep up with for your average tires to ensure that they run smoothly for many miles to come.

  • Check Tire Pressure: On a monthly basis, check your tire pressure. Good tire health often stems from tire pressure remaining at the appropriate level, and tires can lose up to a pound per square inch of pressure each month. Keep the time of year in mind, as well. Tires lose more pressure in the winter than in the summer, for example.
  • Rotate Your Tires: Bring your new Ford to Opelika Ford Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram for a tire rotation approximately every 5,000 miles. Uneven wear can be detrimental to the lifespan of your tires, and tire rotations are meant to help your tires wear more evenly.
  • Balance Your Wheels: Along with tire rotations, have your wheels balanced. If weight is more heavily distributed to one wheel over another, you’re sure to encounter uneven wear.
  • Check Your Alignment: Twice a year, check that your wheels are aligned. When wheels are misaligned, tires wear out much more quickly. One sign of misalignment is your steering wheel is shaking.
