Maintaining your vehicle is in good shape is critical for your safety and the safety of others. Checking Tires is one of the most important tasks that a car owner can do ( or take it to professionals such as us! We do not charge for a Tire inspection). There are several aspects to consider.
Pressure - Under inflation results in unnecessary tire stress, irregular wear, loss of control and accidents. A tire can lose up to half of its inflation pressure and not appear to be flat!
How to Check Inflation Pressure
Alignment - A bad jolt from hitting a curb or pothole can throw your front end out of alignment and damage your tires. Have a tire dealer check the alignment periodically to ensure that your car is properly aligned.

Rotation - Regularly rotating your vehicle's tires will help you achieve more uniform wear. Unless your vehicle's owners manual has a specific recommendation, the guideline for tire rotation is approximately every 5,000 miles.
Tread - Advanced and unusual wear can reduce the ability of tread to grip the road in adverse conditions. Visually check your tires for uneven wear, looking for high and low areas or unusually smooth areas. Also check for signs of damage.
Understanding the tire size and rating will help enable you get the correct tire for your car. Here is a guide to help.
