Tire Maintenance & Safety

 

Keeping the correct air pressure in your tires is as important as giving your engine a tune up.  The economic benefits are perhaps even greater! With the right amount of air pressure, your tires wear longer, save fuel, enhance handling & prevent accidents.

 

Proper inflation along with inspecting tread condition will:

Improve fuel economy

Improve vehicle handling

Increase the life of your tires

Help protect you & others from avoidable breakdowns & accidents


It is important to check your vehicle's tire pressure at least once a month for the following reasons:


Most tires may naturally lose air over time

Tires can lose air suddenly if you drive over a pothole or other object, or if you strike the curb while parking

With radial tires, it is usually not possible to determine under inflation by visual inspection

In order to maintain and prolong the life of you tires, remember to:


Avoid road hazards

Maintain proper tire pressure

Observe tire & vehicle road limits

Have your tires inspected regularly for proper wear patterns & road damage



Rotate tires every 6,000 miles, or when recommended
