Tire Maintenance Tips in High River, Alberta

Tire Maintenance Tips in High River, Alberta

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:

Rotation

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.

Pressure

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!

Why Are Winter Tires Important?

Winter Tires | Calgary, AB

Driving on winter roads in Alberta can be dangerous. That’s why it’s important to consider switching your all-season tires out for winter ones. Whether you’re battling black ice or heavy snowfall, winter tires are made to help provide you the traction you need, when you need it. These are some reasons why you should make the switch as the weather gets colder.

 A special rubber compound. As the winter temperatures drop, all-season or summer tires will stiffen, reducing the likelihood that they will provide good traction. Winter tires use a specific rubber compound that allows the tire to stay flexible, giving it the chance to grip the road better.

Different tread depth and patterns. Winter tires use a combination of deeper treads and unique tread patterns to increase traction. Deep treads reduce snow buildup, therefore increasing the tire’s traction on the snow. The special tread patterns are created to channel snow and slush, while also expelling water.

More biting edges. On the edge of the tires, you will notice tiny ridges. These are known as biting edges. Winter tires increase the number of biting edges on the tires, helping to provide traction on slick ice.

If you’re still unsure if winter tires are important in you live in the Alberta area, talk with our service experts at High River Toyota. They can answer your questions and equip a set of tires on your car.
