Alignment refers to an adjustment of a vehicle’s suspension – the system that connects a vehicle to its wheels. It is not an adjustment of the tires or wheels themselves. The key to proper alignment is adjusting the angles of the tires which affects how they make contact with the road.

Tire Maintenance Tips for Optimal Performance

Regular Tire Inspections

Conduct visual inspections of your tires regularly. Look for signs of uneven wear, bulges, cuts, or foreign objects embedded in the tread. Catching issues early can prevent more significant problems.

Proper Tire Pressure

Check and maintain the recommended tire pressure regularly. Underinflated or overinflated tires can impact fuel efficiency, handling, and overall tire longevity. Refer to your vehicle's manual for the correct pressure levels.

Rotate Your Tires

Rotate your tires regularly, typically every 6,000 to 8,000 miles, to ensure even wear. This extends the lifespan of your tires and enhances overall performance.

Wheel Alignment

Schedule wheel alignments as needed or during routine maintenance. Proper alignment prevents uneven tire wear, improves handling, and contributes to better fuel efficiency.

Balancing Act

Have your tires balanced during routine tire rotations. Balancing ensures even weight distribution, promoting a smoother ride and preventing premature wear on suspension components.

Tread Depth Check

Regularly measure the tread depth of your tires. Adequate tread depth ensures proper traction, especially in wet or slippery conditions. Consider replacing tires that fall below the recommended depth.

Avoid Overloading

Adhere to your vehicle's load-carrying capacity. Overloading can lead to excessive heat buildup in tires, increasing the risk of blowouts and reducing overall tire lifespan.

Store Tires Properly

If you have seasonal tires, store them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Use tire covers and elevate them off the ground to prevent flat spotting.

Mind Your Driving Habits

Avoid aggressive driving, sudden stops, and sharp turns. These behaviors can accelerate tire wear and impact overall tire performance.

Check Spare Tire

Don't forget about your spare tire. Ensure it's properly inflated and in good condition. A well-maintained spare is crucial in case of emergencies.

Alignment After Significant Events

If you've hit a pothole, curb, or been involved in a collision, check your wheel alignment. These events can knock your wheels out of alignment, leading to uneven tire wear.
