Spring is quickly approaching and now is a good time to prepare your vehicle for the change in weather. Tire maintenance is an important step in caring for your vehicle and keeping you safe while driving. There are several ways to ensure that you're tires are in tip top shape and prepared for the road ahead:
Get a wheel alignment: Do you feel vibrations while driving your vehicle? You may need an alignment. Wheel alignment will increase the life of your tires and contributes to safer driving.
Check tire pressure: Incorrect tire pressure results in an increase of wear and tear on your tire. Check the recommended pressure for your vehicle, use an accurate pressure gauge, and add or release pressure as needed to ensure your tire is properly filled.
Check tire tread: To do this, simply stick a penny in the groove of your tires tread with Lincoln's head upside down and facing you. If you can see Lincoln's head your tread is worn and your tire needs to be replaced.
