Your tires are the single most important piece of your vehicle. You simply cannot have the handling, fuel efficiency, and braking power that you need to have complete control over your vehicle without the proper tires. There are plenty of things to know about tires that many are unaware of.
Your tires have direct control over the fuel efficiency of your car. The air pressure in your tires is the one aspect that completely controls this efficiency. If your tires are under-inflated or over-inflated, they will cause your gas mileage to drop. The vehicle must work harder to handle the change in pressure on the road. The more work that the car must do, the more fuel it will burn. One of the best ways for you to stay safe on the road in bad weather is to have tires that exist to handle those conditions.
If you are trying to avoid new tires for as long as possible but want to be safe on the road, have your tires rotated. This helps to even out the wear and tear on your tires, helping to give them as long of a life as possible. If you are unsure if the tires should be rotated, make sure to contact us and we can inspect them for you.
Safety on the road is key for anyone who is operating a vehicle. Most people fail to realize that the air pressure in your tires controls more than fuel efficiency. Over-inflated or under-inflated tires can flatten or burst while driving. This creates an obviously unsafe scenario in which the driver can lose control on the road. If you want to be as safe on the road as possible, you need to regularly check the inflation of your tires and adjust the air pressure as necessary. Look to your owners manual for the proper tire inflation numbers for your tires and vehicle.
Tires are the key to your control on the road, the amount of gas that you burn, and your safety on the road. This is the reason why you should pay attention to the tires that you have on your vehicle and should work to care for those tires. If you fail to give proper attention to them, you will find that you ride is not as smooth and that you are not as safe on the road as you should be. If you notice something out of the norm with your vehicle, make sure to make an appointment as soon as possible so we can inspect it for you.
