Tire Care Tips

  • Balance your wheels – After you get your tires are rotated, remember to also have them balanced. If the weight is distributed to one wheel more than the other, your tires may start to wear unevenly.
  • Check the alignment twice a year – When your wheels are not properly aligned, they wear out much quicker. If you notice that your steering wheel is shaking, it could be a sign that your tires need to be realigned. This can happen over time, if you hit the edge of a curb, or even hit a pothole, so be sure to watch for the signs.
  • Check the tire air pressure every month – Tires can lose up to a pound per square inch of pressure each month. It’s best to keep them at the correct levels. In the winter, the cold weather could cause tire pressure to drop. Warmer summer temperatures will cause the pressure to rise. Make sure you’re checking the levels for your safety.
  • Have your tires rotated every 5,000 miles – This task is even more important with front-wheel drive models because tires can wear unevenly. Rotating the tires allows the ones working hardest to take a break. Learn why tire rotation is important with Westpointe Chrysler Jeep Dodge today!

Watch the Way You Drive

The way you drive can also play a role in how well your tires hold up. How can you make your tires last longer by adjusting your driving habits? Go easy on the brakes, gas, and steering inputs. If you drive aggressively, your tires may wear quicker than normal due to the added stress you put on the vehicle.
