7 Tire Care Tips

Tire Care Tips in Marietta, GA

  • Tire Inflation: Check tire pressure each month. Underinflated tires can lead to excess heat, uneven tire wear, and decreased braking and handling capabilities that may cause structural failures like blowouts and tread separation. Properly inflated tires will maximize tread life, improve handling, and increase fuel efficiency and overall driver safety.
  • Tire Rotation: Follow proper tire rotation schedules. Recommended rotation patterns for your vehicle can be found in your owner’s manual. Routine tire rotations equalize and enhance front-to-rear and side-to-side tire wear. Remember: tire rotation will not prevent or circumvent wear issues caused by worn mechanical components.
  • Tire/Wheel Balance: Balance tires as necessary. Out-of-balance tires may be detected in bumps that become more noticeable at higher speeds. Balancing tires is necessary during initial installation and during a remount.
  • Tire Installation: Install new tires in sets or pairs. The addition of one new tire to the rotation cycle can cause instability and create vehicle handling issues. When new tires are needed, two new tires should be installed on the rear of a vehicle, and the partially worn tires should be moved to the front of the vehicle.
  • Tire Storage: When the time comes to store your tires for next season, choose a dark place away from direct sunlight with low humidity. Tires should be stored away from solvents, grease, oil, or any ozone-producing electrical equipment, which have deteriorating effects on tires.
  • Tire Check: Be mindful of abnormal tire wear or damage to your tires. Watch for signs of punctures, embedded objects, cracks, and bulges.
  • Spare Tire: Always keep a spare tire, and make sure it’s properly inflated and ready for use. You never know when you’re going to need it.

The Rubber Manufacturer's Association (RMA) recommends you take 5 minutes each month to check your tires. Remember that mechanical problems may contribute to uneven tire wear and require correction in order to maximize tire life and vehicle performance. We're available for both tire service and auto repair service.

When you take care of your tires, you improve tire safety and gain benefits in fuel economy and tire longevity.
