Follow These Simple Tire Care Tips

  • Have your wheels balanced regularly: When your tires are rotated you should also have them balanced. If for some reason the weight is distributed on one wheel more than it is on the others, it could cause uneven wear.
  • Check the air pressure on all of your tires monthly: Did you know that your tires can lose up to one pound per square inch of pressure each month while driving on Clarkston streets? That’s why it’s vital to regularly check the air pressure in your tires. In the wintertime, they can deflate even faster, and in the warmer summer weather, the air can expand. 
  • Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles: This is particularly important for front-wheel-drive vehicles because it’s more likely that there will be uneven tire wear. Rotating the tires allows the ones working hardest to take a break.
  • Check the alignment on your tires twice yearly: If your wheels are misaligned, they’ll wear out more quickly on those drives to Waterford. If they are misaligned you’ll probably notice the steering wheel shaking sometimes. Common causes of your tires being misaligned are hitting a large pothole or the edge of a curb.
