At different times of the year you need to focus on different issues with Tires.  This time of the year we deal with snow, ice and freezing rain among other things so it is important to make sure you tires are in optimal condition.    Some things to think about regarding your tires are:

  • Worm tires put drivers at risk for hydroplaning because there is not enough tread to accommodate the water and the tire does not remain in contact with the road.
  • Air pressure will change with the change of seasons, cool damp air of the fall and winter is more dense than the warm dry air of the spring and summer.  Have your tires check at a minimum with each oil change.
  • A convenient way to check your tread depth is to stick a penny in the tread, if you can see Lincoln’s head then the tire is worn out and needs replacing.
Performing routine car maintenance is meant to prolong the life of your vehicle and hopefully avoid major problems that can leave you stuck on the side of the road.  Setting up a schedule with a reputable auto repair facility can take the headache out of remembering when to do what and keep you on track.  If you are concerned that your tires need attention, don’t hesitate to stop by and have Ken take a look at them.
