How To Maintain Your Tires

How To Maintain Your Tires


You should check your tire pressure when the tire is cold, or at least 3 hours after driving your car.  Tire pressure must be maintained at the manufactured suggested psi to reduce rolling resistance, which will maintain your mileage.  You can find your manufactured suggested psi on the driver's door of your vehicle or in your vehicles owner's manual.

To extend the life of your tires and improve performance, you should have tire rotations done regularly (approximately every 6,000 to 8,000 miles).  Rotating your tires regularly, keeps them from wearing unevenly, makes your ride smoother, and extends the life of your tires.  

To ensure your tires are aligned and inflated correctly, always check for bulges, cracks, cuts, penetrations, and abnormal tire wear, especially on the edges of the tire tread.

Every day impacts like potholes and railroad crossings, can knock your vehicle out of alignment.  You can tell if your vehicle's alignment is off, if your vehicle pulls significantly to the left or right when you are traveling on a straight, flat road with little to no cross-wind.  

Your alignment should be check if:
  • You see a wear pattern developing on the outer edges of the tires
  • You experience a difference in your vehicle's handling
  • You've hit something
You should check your tires for wear and damage problems monthly or before long road trips.  An easy way to to check wear is by using the penny test.

Now that you know how to properly maintain your tires, visit Eau Claire Ford Lincoln Quick Lane , for all of our tire and alignment needs.

Eau Claire Ford Lincoln Quick Lane has a low price tire guarantee. We'll beat any price on the 13 major brands we sell.
