Importance of Regular Tire Maintenance

Your tires are one of the most important basic driving elements of your vehicle. Without your tires, you wouldn't be getting very far fast. Your tires may seem like they are perfectly fine but chances are they have seen more wear than you can tell. If you're unsure whether or not your vehicle needs new tires for the winter season, feel free to drop by Byers Volvo Cars, and one of our technicians can evaluate them for you.

Why should I rotate my tires?

The short answer for why you should rotate your tires is to keep your tires evenly worn. However, it is much more than just even wear that you get from rotating your tires. Not only will your tires be evenly worn by rotating your tires, but they also will extend the life of your tires and ultimately save you money.

Keeping your tires evenly worn also improves the handling of your vehicle, especially in wet conditions around Lancaster, OH. If you don't rotate your tires on a front-wheel-drive vehicle you will eventually find that you'll have significantly less tire tread on your front tires compared to your rear. This uneven wear can be extremely dangerous and can be eliminated with a proper tire rotation schedule.

How can I find the recommended pressure for my tires?

You'll find all the necessary information that you need for your vehicle in your owner's manual but some vehicle manufacturers even place a sticker with your recommended tire pressure in the door jamb, on the trunk lid, in the console, or on the fuel door for your convenience. The recommended tire pressure that you should have on your tires is between 30 and 35 PSI.

What is the general lifespan for a set of tires?

The general lifespan of a set of tires depends on your driving habits. Our Westerville drivers who drive a typical number of miles, somewhere around 12,000-15,000 miles annually, can get three to four years worth on their tire tread. Tire tread tends to wear before the rubber compound does. However, if you have a car that you don't drive much, aging tires could be an issue for you. It is a good rule of thumb to replace your tires six years after their production date, regardless of tread life.

What is TPMS and what needs to be done if my indicator comes on?

TPMS stands for the tire-pressure monitoring system. This system works with your car to detect the pressure of your tires and it will warn you if one or more of your tires fall below their expected level. If this sensor comes on it usually means that your tires have fallen below the manufacturer's recommended level. When this sensor comes on it is best to find an air pump at a local gas station around New Albany or stop by our service station in Columbus and one of our technicians can take a look at it.
