Routine tire maintenance 

Tire rotation 

A tire rotation is usually the most common service you will have done to your tires. When a technician rotates your tires, they are placing them on different points on the axle, or ‘rotating’ them. This should be done about twice a year or once every 6,000-8,000 miles or so. Like most tire services, a tire rotation is meant to promote even tire wear.

Alignment 

Over time, your front wheels can and will become misaligned. It’s just a natural thing that happens to vehicles. Your front tires can become pigeon-toed or duck-footed. This doesn’t usually cause any serious problems, but if gone unchecked for long enough, it can become very difficult to drive straight. A front-end alignment appointment will reduce drifting and help your tires wear down evenly. closeup of tire tread

Tire pressure 

This is something you can and should regularly do by yourself. Get yourself a tire gauge and check out your tire pressure once every other week or so. Underinflated or overinflated tires can cause problems and result in popping and even have an impact on your fuel economy. The inside of your driver’s door should have recommended PSI settings.

    Modern-day tires are almost too tough. Nowadays, manufacturers are designing car tires in such a way that, the rubbers can be able to survive through a colossal abuse. However, neglecting tires can be quite expensive. Inflation pressure creates a huge difference on tire life. Thus, you have to determine the proper inflation level. Poor vehicle alignment damages the tire briskly. So, you have to keep your vehicle aligned properly to prolong the life-expectancy of the rubber. Also, mounting the tires correctly will help to increase the lifespan of the ring. Tire care is a part of factory maintenance regimen that no operative should take for granted.

    Tire is the only component in a vehicle that comes in direct contact with the ground. Therefore it wears out frequently. So, we must take proper care of tires to make them long lasting. Checking tire pressure is an important aspect of tire maintenance. Proper tire pressure is required to increase the fuel efficiency of a vehicle. Similarly tire rotation and balancing should be performed once in every 6,000-8,000 miles. Apart from this, tread depth in tires must be measured regularly with the help of a penny and if it is found to be lower than the average, then replacement of tires is necessary.
