Between the vehicle and the road, there are only tires. Tires are one of the most essential parts of a car so it is really important to give as much attention to them just like the other parts of the car. If maintained properly, you can be assured of better performance, fuel efficiency, savings spent on replacements in the future, greater driving confidence and most of all safety.
Here are basic tire maintenance tips for you to practice:
Check your tire pressure.
Check the pressure during filling up at gas stations. If the pressure is not within the manufacturer’s specs, it can result in poor fuel economy and tread wear.
Rotate your tires.
Rotate your tires regularly after traveling 5000-7000 miles or every 6 months. If you don’t rotate them, they will continuously wear in the same part and will not last long.
Switch to snow tires.
All season and summer tires are not designed for winter driving. Switch your tires at the first sign of winter.
