Tire Care Tips 

Tires are the only part of a car that makes direct contact with the road, so they need special care to continue operating at their best. Keep the following pointers in mind to help protect your tire investment: 

  • Check Tire Air Pressure Monthly: Every month, tires can lose up to a pound per square inch of pressure. Keeping tire pressure at the right level can prevent associated issues, as well as make traveling around Portsmouth safer. In the winter, tires lose more pressure and gain more in the summer.

  • Rotate Your Tires Every 5,000 Miles: Uneven tire wear can be a common problem for front-wheel and rear-wheel drive models. Tire rotation gives the hardest working tires a break. 

  • Balance Your Wheels: Be sure to have your tires balanced after completing a tire rotation. If the weight is distributed to one wheel more than the other, this could also create uneven wear.

  • Check the Alignment Twice a Year: Misaligned tires wear more quickly than properly aligned tires. Signs of this include a shaking steering wheel. If you hit the edge of a curb or a pothole, you can easily throw your tires out of alignment.
