What to know about Tire inspections for your car

Tires inspections

 

Proper tire inspections are important to help keep them in the best condition possible. The tires are the only part of the vehicle that makes contact with the surface of the road. The regular maintenance schedule should always be followed for your vehicle. If it is not, you might increase the chance of an unexpected issue occurring with your vehicle. You can either find the schedule in the vehicle owner’s manual, or you can contact us. Either place will allow you to be aware of how frequent your vehicle will need to be brought in for.

Rotation

One of the most important things to have done for the tires is to rotate them. A tire rotation will typically take the front left tire, and move it to the back right. Then the front right tire will switch with the back left. This allows the tires to wear evenly with each other. If they wear evenly, then they will also last longer as well. This will save you money on purchasing new tires more frequently than you otherwise would need to.

Alignment

When a rotation is done, another task can be a tire alignment. This helps to confirm that the tires are working correctly with one another and rotating properly as well. If the alignment is off, you may notice that your vehicle pulls or sways in one direction or all over. By having the tires aligned, it can also help them to have proper tread wear. If the tread wear is low, then new tires will be needed. A tire alignment can also help to improve the fuel mileage of your vehicle. This is because the tires will have to work less against one another and will help the vehicle move along more efficiently. If you ever notice an issue, make sure to contact us and we can inspect the vehicle for any issues or damage.
