They are a big expense but they are also four of the most important and critical parts of your vehicle. Tire failure can be unexpected...but it usually can be avoided. Here are four reasons why putting off tire replacement is not a smart move.
Tires play an essential role in the safety of your vehicle. If yours have been driven on for so long that they’ve seriously deteriorated, you may be putting yourself and your passengers at risk.
Each tire supports a quarter of the weight of your vehicle. Watch for uneven wear, bald spots, knots, shaking at speed or wire showing. If you see any of these you are very near to failure.
Your tires give you the ability to grip the road, turn safely, and stop in a reasonable amount of time. If they’re practically bald, they’re not doing any of those jobs well, and that means you are in danger.
When you put it in perspective, shelling out the dough for a new set after five or six years of good use is a small price to pay for your personal well-being.
Remember, it's always cheaper to replace now than when you are stranded on the road.
Have you been racking up a higher bill than usual at the pump? It probably has to do with your tires. They keep your car moving smoothly, but if they’re worn down unevenly or not balanced properly, you could be wasting lots of money on fuel and subjecting your vehicle components to increased wear from vibration. Worn tires make it more difficult for your vehicle to keep consistent contact with the road. And because the vehicle is working harder, it’s using more fuel.
So if you’re thinking that stretching out the life of your already impaired tires will help your financial situation, think again.
When your tires have good tread, are balanced properly, and are filled to the proper pressure, you can feel the difference in the way your car drives. It feels smooth and composed.
And when your tires are damaged or bare, you probably feel vibrating, pulling, etc. The ride is less pleasurable, and your vehicle’s performance is subpar. A car’s tires also aid its suspension, meaning that driving will feel uncomfortably bumpy and erratic when the rubber is worn out.
Make the most of your driving experience with high quality tires. You car will be able to efficiently deliver power to each of the wheels, and in turn, the tires will put it to the pavement.
Getting maximum traction from your tires affects pretty much everything related to driving. First, it ensures that you remain in control of your vehicle even when faced with tough conditions like wet or muddy roads.
Tires with the proper amount of tread help pass water through so your car stays grounded as you drive. Without that tread, the rubber just spins on wet surfaces, and you can quickly find yourself in a scary situation.
Even when the weather is perfectly fine, having tires that are in good condition still serves a purpose. Your car handles more capably, giving you a much more satisfying ride and reducing fuel consumption.
Keep Your Tires at their Best
Here are a few tips:
Keep an eye on that pressure. There is a label in the driver's doorwell with specified pressure. Be sure to check and correct it monthly.
Have your tires rotated. Changing positions can help ward off uneven wear and lengthen your tire’s useful life.
Inspect your tires monthly. Look for uneven wear, cracks, knots or blemishes. If you catch any of those red flags, call Reliable to find out what steps to take.
Pay attention to how your car feels and drives. If you notice any shaking, pulling or dragging when you’re on the road, your tires may be the culprit.
Come in and we'll show you what to look for and how to inspect. It’s worth putting in just a little bit of time because it can significantly extend the life of your rubber, giving you more bang for your buck.
Most importantly of all, remember not to ignore any issue that you think may be related to your tires. Nothing is worth risking your safety; that’s why it’s always better to remedy the situation right away.
