Driving inevitably takes a toll on the tread of your tires. So, for the safety of those in your vehicle, it’s important to get your tires changed periodically. And when doing so it is advised to buy all four tires new at the same time. If this isn’t possible at the time, at least try replacing the front two or back two at the same time to maintain the balance of your vehicle.
Road and weather conditions will unevenly wear your tires. This uneven wear will put added pressure on your wheel axles and cause heightened vibrations as you drive. It’s advised that the balance of your tires gets checked every 4,000 miles. Tire balancing is a service performed along with the installation of new tires.
Tire rotation is recommended as often as you get an oil change on your car, so about every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. It’s job is to even out the wear on your tires. By rotating the tire on your axle, different parts of the tire will now have to handle the weight of your car. This service can increase gas efficiency and the lifespan of your tires.
If your steering wheel is at all vibrating or veering heavily to the right or left, your car is in need of a wheel alignment. Wheel alignment not only ensures a smoother ride, but will increase the longevity of your tires. This is another way to prevent uneven wear on your tires.
At one time or another, all of us will suffer from a flat tire usually due to an unexpected pothole or nail in the road. Whatever the cause may be, flat tires need to be addressed immediately. For slower, shallower leaks, our team may just patch the tire. However in the case of an extreme blowout or major wear, we recommend completely replacing the tire.
Your car’s Tire Pressure Monitoring System is an electronic system that tracks the air pressure of your tires. If your air pressure falls too low, the TPMS will be sure to alert you, so that you can fill your tires with air, or have them looked at for a potential leak. At Jon Miller Car Care, we make sure your TPMS is always working, so you can depend on this system for your car’s maintenance.
