3 Things to Do to Make Sure Your Car Tires Last Long 

Did you know Americans spend around 20 billion replacing car tires each year! Thanks to stringent quality standards and technology, tires are now designed to last longer than they were three decades ago. Most car owners change them every three to five years. It all boils down to proper care and maintenance. Here are three tips to follow to ensure that your car tires last long:

1. Check Tire Pressure

Driving an under-inflated tire not only damages the tire but can be dangerous as well. It affects the car’s braking and handling. Checking tire pressure can also help you save fuel. Remember to check air pressure once every month, or before a long trip. Bring your vehicle to our workshop, and we’ll do it for free. 

2. Tire Rotation

A sudden tire failure can be fatal, especially when you’re driving at a very high speed. Make sure that you rotate the tires regularly, or before you leave for a long trip. Most technicians recommend rotating once every 10,000 to 12,000 miles. We’re now offering a summer discount – for less than $40 you can now get a whole lot of maintenance services done, including tire rotation. 

3. Wheel Alignment

Wheel alignment ensures that the car’s front and suspensions are adjusted. This prevents accidents and ensures that the car runs efficiently. Does your car seem to pull towards one side, or do you seem to have very little control over the vehicle? Maybe, it’s time for wheel alignment.
