Tips to Make Your Tires Last Longer

There are plenty of costs associated with car maintenance, one of which is the tires. A fresh set of tires can help you get better fuel efficiency, but over time they’ll begin to wear down and need to be replaced, which can get expensive. Is there anything you can do to slow down this process? There is, and we’re going to share with you a few tips to make your tires last longer.

This is one of the easiest things you can do. Checking the tire pressure regularly, say once a month, will let you know if it’s time to pump some air back into your tires. Tires lose about one PSI of pressure each month, so it’s important to check the tire pressure monthly.

Rotate the Tires

The wear and tear on your tires is often distributed unevenly since only two wheels will typically drive the car at a time. In addition, the front two tires are carrying the load of the engine so they’ll usually wear down faster. Getting the tires rotated will ensure you don’t excessively wear down one more than the others.

Balance the Wheels

Each wheel and tire have heavier spots on them. Having a mechanic balance the wheels will prevent excess vibration and uneven tire wear. This can often be done while getting your tires rotated.

When you’re driving down the road and you let go of the steering wheel, does it instantly start pulling one way or the other? If so, you may need to have your tires realigned. All those times you hit a pothole, curb, speed bump or anything else have taken a toll on your tires, but luckily this can be fixed.

The next time you take your car in for a quick fix, have the mechanic take a look at your tires to see if something can be done to correct a potential issue. Remember, Hall Cars offers maintenance services to help you out with tire issues as well!
