Why Tire Maintenance is Important

Friction from the road causes the rubber of your tire treads to wear down over time, which reduces your vehicle’s overall ability to grip the road. As this gripping ability diminishes, handling and overall performance decreases, while the distance it takes you to stop your vehicle dramatically increases. Keeping up with changing your tires can help you to avoid a potentially dangerous situation.

Checking the Condition of Your Tires

Anyone can check the current state of their tires with a simple test that only takes about five minutes to perform. All you need is an average American quarter.

To perform the test, stick the quarter in the tread of one of your tires so that Washington’s head is pointing the center of the wheel. If you can’t see the top of his head, you should be in the clear. The less you can see of his head, the better. If you can see the top of his head, or are getting close, your treads are getting very thin.

Since tires wear unevenly, be sure to repeat this test across the entire width of the tire, as well as for all the wheels. While you’re at it, be sure to examine each tire for any damage or heavy wear.

Preventative Tire Maintenance

Regular tire rotations and wheel alignments can help you to even out irregular wearing. This will help you extend the overall life of your tires. The service team at Cox Chevy provides both services.
