Don't let outdated Tires put the brakes on Valentines day.

Don’t let tire problems get in the way this Valentine’s day.  Is it time for an alignment?Have you checked your tire pressure? Do my tires need to be rotated?  Do I need new tires? While these questions can seem overwhelming, with the help of tire professionals and various self-maintenance, any driver can maintain proper tire care and be ready for the big date this Valentine’s Day. From tire rotations to air pressure, learning what signs and symptoms will help indicate tire replacement or repair is important for every truck owner. 

Perhaps one of the most obvious tire maintenance steps most drivers neglect until it’s too late is checking your tire’s air pressure. Even careful drivers with great tire management lose around 1 psi (pound per square inch) per month, attributing in high volumes of loss over time. Keeping this in mind, drivers should always be aware of air pressure in their tires and ensure proper pressure is maintained.  

Maintaining proper tire maintenance with tire rotations and wheel alignments will help to save money and ensure safety and dependability for longer tire life. Follow your vehicles owner’s manual on the recommended frequency of tire rotations, but if unspecified, make sure to rotate tires every 5,000-8,000 miles.
