Have you thought about how much money you spend on tires every year? Many people don’t realize that reducing annual tire expenses is actually quite easy. However, if you need new tires you should never put it off-visit our tire store in Roswell today! All you have to do is practice the following tips and you can prolong the life of your tires:
Keep Your Tires Inflated Properly
Properly inflated tires can’t be stressed enough. This is the number one piece of advice that an automotive specialist will give you to extend the life of your tires. Check your tire pressure with a digital gauge once per month, and stop by a tire dealer to get them inflated to the manufacturer’s recommended PSI, which can be found on the driver’s side door jam.
Protect Your Tires
Sun, gravel, snow, and uneven roads can be very harmful to your tires. To protect your tires from these elements, make it a habit to park in the shade and drive on high-quality roads whenever possible. If you drive your car through the snow in winter, change your tires out to winter tires and be sure that you store your normal tires properly.
Rotate Your Tires
If you have a front-wheel drive vehicle, the front tires will inevitably wear faster than the rear tires. A tire dealer will be glad to perform a tire rotation for you—switching the front and the rear tires—in order to promote even wear and extend the overall life of your tires.
Buy Appropriate Tires
The rating of your tire has a lot to do with how long they are expected to last. If you are not particularly interested in high-performance driving, you shouldn’t have performance tires—they will wear out faster. The next time you go to the tire dealer, ask about tire rating, and find out which tires will provide the best balance between comfort, traction, and value.
