The tires are an important part of your vehicle to inspect. There are a few things that you should look at. Make sure they are properly inflated. If a tire is too low, it has a greater chance of blowing out. When a tire is over inflated, then it is more prone to pick up sharp objects on the road. The vehicle owner’s manual can advise you on how much air each tire should have. You can also contact us and we can advise you on the amount as well. If you are unsure about the air pressure reading, you can also schedule an appointment and we can inspect it.
Check the Tread
Also you will want to check the tread of the tires. The tread will help grip the surface of the road as you drive. This results in good handling of the vehicle. If the road is wet or slick, you will want good tread so you can keep control of the vehicle. If you start to notice the vehicle swerves, check the tread. Take a penny and place it upside down in the groove. If you see the top of Lincoln’s head, then the tread is too low. If you notice uneven tread wear, then a tire rotation can be beneficial. This will help make sure that the tread is wearing evenly all the way around the tire.
Another important thing is to check the tires for any bulges or cracks. If the tires have hit something, you may notice a bulge starting to form on the sidewall. This can eventually lead to the tire blowing out and resulting in an accident. If you notice any issue, make sure to bring the vehicle as soon as possible so we can inspect it for you.
