Checking each tire of your vehicle, you can help to determine if there is an issue. You can also bring the vehicle in and we can inspect it for you. Following the schedule for regular maintenance is important, as this can prevent problems. If you are not sure what should be inspected for the vehicle, make sure to contact us. We can also recommend what you should check on the vehicle as well. Also remember to be aware of any issues or problems as you drive. Even something you think might be a minor problem, should never be ignored.
Checking the Tires
Check each tire to ensure that the tread is wearing properly. If the tread is wearing poorly, you will want to make sure that you have it resolved. You can check the tread of the tires by taking a penny and placing it upside down. This should be done in the groove of each tire. If you are able to see the top of Lincoln’s head, then the tread has been worn down. Depending what the other tires have for tread wear can determine what is done. Sometimes a tire rotation can help even out the tread wear. This is the same for if an alignment is done. Doing either of these will help keep the tires operating and lasting as long as possible.
You should also check the air pressure of each tire. If one is lower on air, it can cause the tire to blow if you are not careful. Make sure to contact us and bring the vehicle in. That way we can check the condition of each tire to see if a new set is needed. We will also be able to see if having them rotated or aligned can extend the life of the tires. No matter what the issue might be, we can advise you on what is best for your vehicle.
