Tire Maintenance Tips
Tires are one of the most important aspects of your car because, without them, you wouldn't be able to get anywhere. Tires endure a lot of wear and tear throughout their lives. Between snow, rain and foreign objects, they get worn down. The real question is, how do you extend the life of your tires? As your Cadillac dealership near Romeoville, Hawk Cadillac outlines everything you need to know about your tires.
If your vehicle is misaligned, it can cause your tires to wear unevenly, causing your car to handle differently. Wheel alignment is key to prolonging the life of your tires. If one of your tires is not aligned correctly, it will affect your overall ride quality and can shorten the life of your tires.
Your vehicle's manufacturer gives the recommended tire pressure and many vehicles will show a warning on the dashboard if the tire pressure is low. Check your tire pressure every 3,000 miles to keep your vehicle driving smoothly and evenly, and therefore using gas more efficiently.
Each tire performs a different task and therefore wears at different rates. Your front tires are in charge of steering while your rear tires are behind the force of your vehicle. Regular tire rotation, every 6,000 - 8,000 miles, will extend the life of your tires and improve their performance.
