Wondering How Long Do New Tires Last?

Tires

Regardless of the Age Of Your Tires - Maintain Them With Regular Tire Service

Ever wondered how long do new tires last? The answer is to seek professional tire service and follow basic tire care advice. Neglecting your tires can cause unnecessary damage to the parts of your car and excessive spending of your budget. Auto experts advise drivers to be responsible and have routine maintenance completed for a car or truck's wheels because not only could tire and wheel neglect cause damage, it can also cause dangerous accidents. Protect yourself, your passengers, and other motorists by investing in tire maintenance.

Here are a few ways to maintain your automobile's tires, and prevent extra wear and tear:

  • Never drive a damaged tire! A damaged tire may burst at any time, and otherwise will cause an imbalance of the car or truck's alignment. Keep a spare at all times, and use that spare even if the damaged tire has not flattened. Seek professional tire service as soon as possible.
  • Don't overload the vehicle. Consider the weight that is loaded into the vehicle. Moving heavy boxes, furniture, or more passengers than seats allow can be potentially dangerous and cause extra wear on tire treads.
  • Check air pressure in tires, especially important during the winter season. Low temperatures can cause deflation of tires. Make an effort to check the tire pressure daily during the winter months, and refill them to the proper level. Not too much, but not too little.
  • Spend the extra money to have your tires rotated twice a year. This balances out the wear of the tire tread and prevents excessive wear on specific areas on the tires. Having the tires rotated on a regular schedule will also prevent unnecessary damage to the alignment of the car or truck.
