How To Keep Your Tires In Top Shape

Given the fact that the tires are the only part of the car that actually touches the road when driving, it is important to constantly keep them in shape. The good news is that you will not need more than a few minutes on a monthly basis to do so. Below you will find some advice on how to maintain your tires up and running.

Check The Air Pressure In The Tires Monthly

Improper air pressure inside your tire can lead to a lot of trouble and damage. Make a habit to check the air pressure in your tires once a month. In case you didn’t know this, the value of the air pressure that is listed to the side of the tire is not the right one for your car, but the maximum air pressure your tires can handle. To find the right value check out the owner manual for your car, look at the edge of the side door of the driver, the door post, or check the lid of the gas tank. Verify the air pressure in your spare also, just like you should periodically check the old locks on your home or office doors. If you need a specialist to handle this task, get in touch with a 24 hour locksmith on the website.

 The tire’s air pressure needs to be verified when the tire is cold; checkout before you hit the road and keep in mind its values will change one or two pounds for every ten extra degrees of temperature. The pressure goes down in cold weather and up in warm weather. If you have a missing valve cap, replace it on the spot and close them tightly to prevent dirt or dust to get in. Make sure the tires have the right tread depths, with a minimum of 1/16th of an inch.
