The significance of tire maintenance is often overlooked. Tires a vital part of your vehicle as they are responsible for the effectiveness of steering, delivering power to the road while providing a buffer to all the potholes, cracks and bumps offered by the varying terrains; not to mention, channeling away water and cutting through snow and ice thus allowing you to travel safely in inclement weather. These critical roles of a tire can be compromised when not adhering to a regular maintenance plan; if tread has worn, tires will struggle to gain traction on any and all surfaces spelling disaster, if driving on over/under inflated tires, the vehicle will, not only, be unbalanced in how it is effectively able to traverse roadways (ie. pulling to the side, allowing too much or too little tread contact, etc…).
Tire maintenance can easily be overlooked by the average car owner. Think about it. How often do we actually take the time to inspect our tire tread or air pressure coming or going? We are often in a hurry and it’s not even on our radar. But, it should be. Having low tire pressure or worn tires can be potentially dangerous, as it can not only impair your driving performance and stopping capabilities, but it can also cause a blowout.
Uneven tire pressure can cause tires to wear out quicker than they rightfully should. Worn tires could cause easily pop at any time, causing an accident. At Buckeye Complete Auto Care, we want to not only make sure that your car is safe but that you aren’t spending money on repairs and replacements before the necessary time.
If you are unsure if your tires are low or worn, feel free to stop in. It’s always a good idea to have your tires rotated every 6-8,000 miles. When having them rotated at the respective intervals, one of our experienced technicians will examine them and let you know if anything seems awry.
