Caring for Your Tires
Your car’s tires take a beating. Even if you do all city and highway driving, weather extremes and roads in need of repairs can wear your tires down quickly. Your tires play an important role in giving you a smooth ride and ensuring your car gets the best gas mileage possible. So, how do you keep them in the best shape possible? Here at Paretti Mazda, we can help!
Keep Tires Inflated Properly
Believe it or not, many drivers’ tires are either underinflated or overinflated. Underinflated tires wear out much quicker and increase your car’s gas consumption. Overinflated tires can blow out more easily and can make your car unstable, even unsafe! Check your tires once a month to ensure they’re properly inflated. Consult your car’s owner’s manual or ask the service technicians at Paretti Mazda to find out the recommended level for your vehicle.
Don’t Spin Your Tires
Excessive spinning may cause tire explosion but at the very least, it wears your tires down. Avoid spinning if your vehicle gets stuck in the snow or mud. A gentle rocking backward and forward is easier on your tires and more effective at freeing your vehicle.
Avoid Excessive Weight
As you might imagine, overloading your vehicle is tough on your tires. Avoid excessive weight that can place a stress on your tires, leading to poor handling and increased fuel consumption. All that junk in your trunk has to go to allow a smoother ride and a longer life on your tires.
Have Your Tires Rotated
Rotating your tires keeps the wear on the tires even and keeps your car running smoothly and efficiently. Making sure your tires wear down evenly extends their life and keeps your car in the condition that you hope for. We’re happy to help you with a tire rotation schedule at Paretti Mazda.
