Your vehicle will benefit from having the tires inspected regularly. This will help ensure you have the best and safest ride possible when you travel. The tires are the only part that will make contact with the road, so make sure that they are always in the best condition. No matter if you are traveling a few miles or several hundred, your tires will need to be the best they can. If there is an issue with a tire, make sure to bring it in as soon as possible. We can check all the tires for the vehicle to ensure they are in the best condition.

Air Pressure

The first thing to inspect is the air pressure for each tire. This is best to do before you drive the vehicle. When the tires rotate and are driven, they can warm up. This can result in a false reading of the tires, because it will have a reading like it has more than it should. If you need to check the air pressure after you drive, allow the vehicle to sit and cool for an hour or so. Then checking the air pressure will allow you to have the most correct reading.

Tread Wear

Also check the tread wear of the tires. The tread is designed to grip the surface of the road and have better handling of the vehicle. If the tread is low or worn, then the vehicle might swerve when roads are slick. You can test the tread by taking a penny and placing it upside down in the groove of the tread. If you can see the top of Lincoln’s head, then the tread is worn. Bring the vehicle in so we can inspect it for you. If the tread has worn unevenly, a tire rotation can be beneficial. This allows the tires to be rotated so they can wear evenly and correctly.
