Rotating tires can help to keep them wearing evenly and elongate the lifespan. When your tires are rotated, the back tires and front tires are swapped. This helps to gain maximum life and performance out of your tires. Tires on a vehicle that is front wheel drive may wear unevenly because the tires are used to grip, causing the surface to wear down quicker. If you notice uneven wear when you inspect your tires, you may need to schedule a tire rotation, before heading on a road trip.
A properly balanced tire helps to minimize uneven wear and extend the life of the tires. When a tire is balanced, small weights are attached to the wheel in order to limit vibration of the tire and wheel as they turn. If you notice a vibration when driving, schedule a tire balance for your vehicle.
Proper tire alignment promotes even tire wear and helps to keep your vehicle headed straight when driving on the road. Each vehicle has proper alignment recommendations for the make and model. Over time, traveling on bumpy roads or running over something, your tires can get out of alignment. If you experience drifting or pulling, when you drive your vehicle, it may be time for an alignment.
Over time, your tires will naturally wear down and need to be replaced. New tires can help keep you and your family safe on the road, as you travel out of town for the holidays. It is also a good idea to ensure your tires are in proper condition before winter weather strikes in the area. New tires, with good tire tread, can help your vehicle grip when traveling on slick, snow-covered roads
