Drivers tend not to think about their tires unless there is something wrong with them. But it’s important to know that proper tire maintenance can help prolong the life of your tires. By keeping them aligned and well balanced they will wear evenly as opposed to forming telltale signs that there might be an issue with your alignment, balance or suspension.
The depth of your tread is often times the primary indicator as to when you will need to replace your tires. The tread on your tires is what gives you traction, especially on rainy days. The tread helps to grip the road and expel water through the channels in your tire tread.
Uneven wear and tear on your tires is another warning sign that should be noticed. When your tires wear unevenly it means that the are not making equal contact with the road and it could mean that some tires are taking more of a beating than your other tires because the weight of your car is not being evenly distributed among your four tires. Because it is not recommended to change only one tire out at a time it is important to make sure that all your tires are wearing as evenly as possible which will help to prolong the use of all four of your tires.
If you do notice excessive vibrations at higher speeds, especially on the freeway, this could point to an issue with your tires being unbalanced or out of alignment. Not to worry here at Swedish Solution we can help diagnose the issue and quickly correct it. Then if we notice that this issue has caused uneven wear on your tires it may be possible to extend the use of your tires by performing a tire rotation.
Depending on the position of the tire it can take the brunt of your turns as well as your acceleration and quick stops. By rotating the tires you can give them a better chance of wearing evenly and therefore prolonging the time before they need to be exchanged for new tires.
