Are you finding that you have been visiting your auto shop more frequently than usual for urgent tire repairs? You may have repaired your old tires one too many times! However, shopping for tires is often a fearful and anxious event for a lot of vehicle owners. Trying to choose between the many different brands and types of tires can be confusing and time-consuming, as well as expensive! However, please don’t buy the cheapest tire on the market. When it comes to tires, the old saying is most often true, “You get what you pay for!”

Be sure to read the specifications of each tire before making a decision. The purpose of the tire, how many miles you drive, and the condition of the roads you typically use, are all factors to consider when deciding what kind of tire to buy. Temperature changes, sun exposure, storage conditions are also factors that impact the life of your tires. Tire manufacturers publish warranty guidelines for their tires, which is to typically replace the tire every six years at least (no longer than 10 years, regardless of tread depth), as warranties expire at six years.

Here are a few tire service guidelines that will help extend the life of your tires if performed on a regular basis:

  • Check tire inflation pressure about every 3,000 miles. This affects how your vehicle handles on the road, acceleration and deceleration, and fuel efficiency.
  • Rotate your tires every 6,000 to 8,000 miles for even treadwear.
  • Check the wheel alignment and have it adjusted as needed.
  • Check for uneven tread wear and cuts or tears in the rubber and sidewalls.
  • Stay below the maximum load capacity to avoid excessive pressure on tires.

Don’t compromise the safety of your vehicle. Unusual vibrations or other steering problems are indications of bad tires. Slow down and drive with caution and head to your tire service shop.
