Tire maintenance is an absolute must for car owners, just like checking the oil in your car regularly. Why? Taking care of your tires keeps you safe and saves you money at the same time.

How Long Do Tires Last?

Tires typically last about three or four years, if you’re driving 12,000-15,000 miles per year.

Tire Care Tips

Pay attention to these few simple things, and you can help your tires last a long time:

  • Maintain air pressure. It’s easy to check with a digital tire pressure gauge, and some vehicles monitor it for you. It’s especially important to have enough air in your tires in the Detroit-area’s winter weather.
  • Rotate and balance your tires regularly. This will keep weight distributed evenly so your tire tread won’t wear out unevenly.
  • Check your alignment. If you’ve recently hit a curb or a big pothole, your car might be out of alignment, which causes tires to wear out unevenly.
