Ted's Auto Clinic Inc Tech Question On Tire WearMay 4th, 2017
Ted's Auto Clinic Inc Tech Question:
My name is Dan. My vehicle tires wore out early and I had to replace them. What can I do to make my tires last longer?
Ted's Auto Clinic Inc Answer:
Dan's problem – premature tire wear – is very common for Chicago residents. Here are several ways to lengthen the life of your tires:
First, tires lose air pressure over time, so check them at least once a month and fill them up as necessary. A sticker on the driver's side door jamb has the recommended pressure.
Tire rotation is also important to increase tire life. Your front tires take the brunt of stopping and steering forces so they wear faster than the rear tires. They should be rotated regularly so that all four tires wear more evenly. Talk to us at Ted's Auto Clinic Inc in Chicago.
Out of balance wheels can also cause a tire to wear too fast. Chicago drivers who feel a vibration in their seat or steering wheel may have a wheel out of balance.
Finally, bad wheel alignment and worn or damaged suspension can chew through a tire very quickly. Ask your friendly pros at Ted's Auto Clinic Inc to have your tires inspected for signs of premature wear. Your will be able to pinpoint the cause and get it taken care of.
