You may not think of them while driving, but your vehicle’s tires are some of the most important components keeping you safe. They keep your car attached to the road and it’s vital that you properly care for them to ensure they are working well. Here are some tire maintenance tips to consider:
No, we’re not referring to the wheels spinning while you’re driving. The front tires typically wear down faster than those in the back, meaning the tread is uneven and unsafe. Rotating the tires from front to back (and diagonally) is the best way to ensure more even wear. This will also help extend the life of the tires and improve your driving experience.
Along with wear, you have to watch out for the tires deflating or being overinflated. Proper tire pressure improves fuel economy and helps you stop quicker, especially in unfavorable conditions. Many Toyota vehicles come with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System that will let you know when it’s time to adjust the PSI. But we can also take care of that for you at the High River Toyota service center.
The best way to take care of tires is by bringing your vehicle to our knowledgeable staff at High River Toyota. We’ll be sure you’re prepared for what’s to come and answer any questions you may have!
