It’s no secret that tires for your vehicle are expensive. They need to be replaced from time to time, but is there a way to make them last longer? Yes, there is! There are a few things that you can do yourself to help prolong the life of your vehicle’s tires. Continue reading below to learn about a few things that you can do to help add to your tire’s life expectancy!
Tips to Keep Your Tires Around for Longer
- Keep an eye on the air pressure. It is important to keep your tires properly inflated. It is recommended to check your tire pressure every month and monitor the PSI. Keeping the correct tire pressure not only makes the last longer, but it is also safer.
- Rotate your tires regularly. The rule of thumb is to have your tires rotated every 5,000 miles. This will ensure that the wear that is being put on your tires is evenly spread out, so they last longer.
- Check the alignment of your tires. Misaligned tires also cause uneven wear on them. Try to get your alignment looked at twice every year.
- Avoid stopping and accelerating quickly. If you are an aggressive driver, you could be wearing your tires out faster. Try to accelerate more gradually and not all at once to not put as much wear on your tires.
