Proper tire and wheel care are two very vital vehicle procedures. Not only will regular maintenance give you a more comfortable ride, but it will also extend the life of your vehicle and decrease the risk of an accident on the road.

Your Tires and Safety

As your vehicle’s sole contact with the road, your tires play a huge role in how your vehicle handles. This includes how tightly you can turn, how well you can accelerate, and how quickly you can stop. Over time, friction causes the treads on your tires to wear down, decreasing your vehicle’s grip on the road. This becomes most noticeable when conditions are slippery, such as when the ground is covered with rain, snow, or ice.

One of the easiest ways to check the condition of your treads is to grab a quarter and perform this simple test. Stick the quarter in one of the treads of the tire so that Washington’s head is pointed towards the center of the wheel. If you can’t see the top of his head, you’re in good shape. The less you can see in fact, the better. If you do see the top of his head, your treads are running dangerously thin and should be replaced.

Why Alignments are Important

Make sure you perform this test across the whole face of the tire. Like a pair of shoes, your tires experience uneven wear because of uneven weight distribution. Getting regular wheel alignments can help to correct this, though there will always be at least some minor uneven wearing. These alignments will help to extend the life of your tires, as well as your vehicle, saving you more money in the long run!
