Taking care of your tires is just as important as taking care of what is under your hood. Bad tires are unsafe and could leave you in sticky situations. Today we are going to go over the best ways to take care of your tires.
First, pick the right tires. Choosing the right tires is one of the best ways to make sure that they last as long as possible. Reliable brands include Continental, Bridgestone, Michelin, and Goodyear. All of these brands offer long-lasting and safe quality with every tire. Think of tires like shoes, the name brands will likely be of higher quality and last longer.
The next best thing you can do is keep your tires clean and free of waste. If you allow dirt and debris to continue to sit on your tires this can cause permanent damage to the tires themselves and any metal that is near that area. So, getting your car washed is not only good for the shiny exterior but also to maintain the health of your tires. Keep your tires clean and they will last much longer.
Lastly, get your tires rotated. A tire rotation is part of most regular maintenance routines for good reason. During a rotation, technicians remove each wheel and place it in a different location on the car to ensure even tire tread wear. Rotating your tires equalizes natural wear patterns by swapping the position of your tires. Most cars should get a tire rotation every five to seven thousand miles or every other oil change.
Not only is tire maintenance important for the longevity of your tires but also because healthy tires are a huge safety factor. If you have healthy tires, you will be much safer on the road.
