Tips for Maintaining Your Tires During the Summer Months
Tires are the only thing between your car and the road. They are critical to how your car performs and handles. That's why it is important to take care of them throughout the year, but here's some extra tips to help you maintain your tires during the upcoming summer months. Here are some tips to help you keep your tires in tip-top shape this summer:
1. Check your tire pressure regularly. You can do this by using a tire gauge and checking the tire pressure when it's cold (before driving). The ideal tire pressure for your vehicle will be listed in the owner's manual.
2. Don't wait until you see signs of damage to have your tires rotated or balanced—that can create uneven wear that leads to blowouts and other problems down the road! Rotate them every 5,000 miles (or sooner if you feel like they need it) so they wear evenly over time without causing any damage to other parts of your vehicle (like alignment). This can be fixed at any shop that does auto repairs (like ours!)—they'll just have to adjust the wheel alignment so that all four wheels are pointing straight ahead again. It's important not only for safety reasons but also because unevenly worn tires can lead to premature wear and tear on other parts of your car as well as make it harder for drivers to control their vehicle in general due to traction issues (which can lead to more accidents).
3. Make sure you're using an approved type of air filter—this will ensure that there are no contaminants getting into your engine and causing issues with fuel efficiency or performance!
Maintaining your tires is just as important during the summer months as it is during the rest of the year. In fact, many people make the mistake of thinking that tire maintenance is less important in warmer weather because you don't need snow tires. This isn't true at all. As long as you follow good tire maintenance practices, you can help your vehicle to run more smoothly and efficiently on warm-weather roads.
