General Tips

Reducing tire wear through defensive driving

Good driving habits matter for tire lifespan. Avoid fast acceleration, hard braking, and cornering, as they wear tires. Also, watch out for road debris and potholes, which can lead to blowouts. Safe driving not only extends tire life but also improves fuel efficiency.

Reducing wear through proper wheel alignment

Improper wheel alignment is a leading cause of rapid and uneven tire wear. Misaligned tires can wear out quickly, with one side experiencing more wear than the other. This can lead to noise and vibrations, affecting your driving experience.

Reducing tire wear through proper air pressure

Air pressure in tires is crucial. Underinflated tires wear out the edges and risk sidewall rupture, while overinflated ones affect handling, wear the center, and lead to a rough ride. Regularly check air pressure when tires are cold to maintain safety and fuel efficiency.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much air do my tires need?

Recommended tire pressure and size for both front and rear tires are clearly marked on the tire plaque that’s affixed to the vehicle, normally found on the driver’s door post. Be very careful when “plus” sizing a vehicle: the inflation pressure will change to take into account the decreased air volume available in order to continue to meet the minimum load carrying capacity stated for that vehicle.

Is it really necessary to rotate your tires?

Yes, it really is. In order for all 4 tires to wear evenly, you must rotate your tires regularly. A good rule of thumb is to rotate your tires every other oil change. We even do it for free when purchased at our location! Consult your owner’s manual for tips and any special recommendations for your vehicle.

When should I change my tires?

When the tread is worn down to 2/32 of an inch, tires must be replaced.

All tires have “wear bars,” which are small, raised bars of rubber in the groove that indicate when tires are worn out. If your tread is worn down to the wear bars, it’s time for a new tire.

A penny is a reliable tool to check tire tread.
1. Take a penny and put the head into one of the grooves of the tire tread. If part of his head is covered by the tread, you’re driving with the legal amount of tread.
2. If you can see all of the head, it’s time to replace the tire.

Why are winter tires important?

Research and technology has greatly changed the effectiveness of the winter tire. Snow tires have always been made of a softer rubber compound that stayed flexible in colder temperatures but when the weather dropped below 7 degrees Celsius, the rubber would harden and lose its ability to grip, like a hockey puck skimming across ice. New compounds in winter tires maintain their softness and grip in up to -45 degrees Celsius and are proven to have a shorter stopping distance.

Installing four winter tires on your vehicle will give you better handling, control and a shorter stopping distance in winter. It may even qualify you for a lower insurance rate! Being a safe, responsible driver is important, and that includes having your vehicle properly winterized.

We offer 24 hours farm and highway service to all, including those not so local. If you need it, we can help!
