Nothing lasts forever, not even your tires. While some drivers may ride their tires down until they burst, you can avoid popping a tire completely with a bit of expert help. Star Mazda is more than just a top-performing Glendale Mazda dealership, we’re also well-versed in the subject of tire care.
Our tires play a number of roles, from a weight balancer to a buffer between the road and your vehicle. However, if you treat your tires right, they’ll never let you down.
One of the best things you can do for your tires is to have them rotated on a regular basis. Keeping track of tire wear, and being sure that they wear evenly can vastly improve the lifespan of your tires. You can ensure that your tires wear evenly by getting them rotated by a tire care team every six months or 6,000 to 8,000 miles.
Air pressure is another factor to keep a keen eye on. Your tires should be inflated to a certain psi. Avoiding over inflation or under inflation can make a tremendous difference in popping a flat tire or not. Experts recommend that you check your air pressure once a month to be 100% sure that your tires’ PSI is at appropriate measurements.
Last, but of course far from the least, is your tread depth. Tire tread is essential for traction and a telltale sign of the age of your tire. Bald worn tires perform much worse than tires that still have plenty of millimeters worth of tread-depth. However, when inspecting your tires, having a knowledgeable technician by your side can provide peace of mind.
