Inspecting the Tires on your Vehicle

If you want to keep your vehicle in the best condition possible, make sure to bring it in on a regular basis. This way we can inspect the parts and components for you. We can also check the tires to ensure that they are in the best condition possible for when you drive. If you notice anything out of the norm with the tires, make sure to schedule an appointment with us. By noticing an issue at the first sign, you can help to prevent further problems in the future.


You should inspect your tires at least once a month and always before long trips. It is important to keep an eye out for excessive or irregular tread wear, under inflation, or damage like scrapes, bulges, cracks, punctures and more. If any of these conditions are present, or if you are experiencing continuous pressure loss, the tire should be dismounted and inspected for damage by a trained tire professional to determine if a repair can be made.


Misalignment of the front or rear wheels can cause rapid or uneven wear. Front-wheel-drive vehicles and those with independent rear suspension require alignment of all four wheels, instead of two. Getting the alignment checked as specified in your vehicle’s owner’s manual is the recommended way to prolong tire life. Sometimes irregular tire wear can be corrected by rotating your tires. Consult your vehicle’s owner’s manual or visit us to find the appropriate rotation pattern for your vehicle. If your tires show uneven wear, ask a Goodyear expert to check for and correct any misalignment, imbalance, or other mechanical problem involved before rotation


Inspecting your tires can help you find punctures or other visible signs of damage that could necessitate replacement. If you do notice anything out of the norm, make sure to bring the vehicle in so we can inspect it for you. This can help keep the tires in the best condition possible.
