Make sure that the tires are checked regularly to ensure the proper amount of air pressure is in them when you drive. Under inflated or over inflated tires can lead to other issues with your vehicle. It could cause the vehicle to become less fuel-efficient as you drive. It can also lead to other problems with the wheels and other connecting parts. Also check the tread of the tires. If it is starting to wear unevenly or show signs of low tread, make sure to bring the vehicle in. We can inspect the tires of the vehicle to make sure everything is in the best condition possible.



An alignment is an important part of vehicle maintenance. By having the tires aligned, you can help to increase the efficiency of the vehicle. You might need to have the vehicle aligned if you notice some steering or handling issues. If the vehicle starts to pull in one direction or another, make sure to make an appointment to bring it in. We can inspect it over for what the source of the issue could be. The alignment is also important for tie rods, steering links, or steering rack. By having the wheels aligned, you can help to improve the handling and traction. This can help to ensure the safety of you and your passengers. If the tires lean in or out when they rotate, it could cause an issue.



The tires should also be checked on a schedule to see if they should be balanced. This is important because tires that are balanced can also wear correctly when they rotate when you drive. We can also help to recommend when the tires should be balanced. The tires need to wear correctly so the tread is the same all the way around the tire. If the tread has worn differently than the other tires, it could lead to an issue in the future. Other parts can start to wear and become an issue. By balancing the tires you can also help to ensure they make contact with the surface of the road correctly.



One way to help preserve the life of the tires is to have them rotated. This can help to ensure that the tires are wearing evenly when they rotate. If one tire is starting to show more signs of wear than the others, bring the vehicle in. We can help to determine if a rotation should be needed. We can also help to set up a schedule that is beneficial for tire rotation. By noticing an issue at the first sign, you can help prevent further damage in the long run.
