Tires are one of the most important components of your vehicle because they connect your car to the road. Making sure your tires are in proper condition not only helps your vehicle run better and more efficiently, but it also keeps you safe on the road. As the spring weather arrives, use this tire maintenance checklist to prepare for the roads:
- Check Tire Pressure – As the temperature changes, your tire’s air pressure may fluctuate. It is important to get in the habit of checking your tire air pressure often since proper air pressure in your tires allows for better fuel economy, smoother driving, and is an important safety factor.
- Check Tire Tread – The tread on your tires is very important especially in wet road conditions. Appropriate tire tread helps your tires to grip to the road, keeping you in control of the vehicle, and helping you drive properly in wet conditions. Properly maintained tires can also help prevent situations like hydroplaning.
- Rotate Your Tires– Routine tire rotations assist in the process of maintaining your tires and allowing the tread to wear evenly. Your tires may have experienced irregular wear during the long winter months, but by regularly rotating them, your tires will last longer and keep you safer on the roads.
- Change Your Tires – Winter tires are great for your vehicle when it comes to ice and slick driving conditions. However, they may not be the best tires for the spring season. Switching to all season tires will give your car better fuel economy, a longer tread life, and a quieter ride.
