What Are the Types of Tire Maintenance?
There are a few different types of tire maintenance, all of which help your tires wear evenly so they won’t face premature wear and tear. If your tires wear unevenly or excessively, they won’t provide the right amount of traction needed to keep your vehicle stable and under your control. Uneven wear also puts your tires at a higher risk for damage that can result in an unexpected flat or blowout. Let’s go over some of the types of tire maintenance that you can schedule to protect your tires.
- Wheel Alignment Service: If your wheels aren’t aligned correctly, your tires won’t sit evenly on the ground. This causes uneven wear and adds damage that can be prevented through routine wheel alignments.
- Tire Rotation Service: Certain tires on your vehicle will face more friction than others, which will cause them to wear down at a faster rate. Tire rotation service refers to switching the position of the tires across the vehicle in a specific pattern so they can wear evenly.
- Tire Inflation and Pressure Checks: Tire pressure affects the condition and performance of your tires. If they’re overinflated, they’ll wear excessively in the middle. If your tires are underinflated, they could face excessive wear on the edges.
- Tire Repairs: Many people drive over a nail or another sharp object resulting in a flat tire. If this happens to you, schedule a tire repair and it can usually be fixed with a simple patch.
When Should You Replace Your Tires?
There’s no universal answer for how often tires need to be replaced. How often you should replace your tires will depend on their age, how often you drive, and the terrain they travel on. The best way to know when to get new tires is by checking their condition on a regular basis. You’ll want to check for signs of damage such as cracks, cuts, punctures, and bulges. You’ll also want to look for fabric or cord showing through the rubber. Our technicians at the service department at Victory Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM can inspect your tires and let you know if you’re in need of a replacement.
