Maintaining Your Tires
Air Pressure: Always check the tire inflation pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. This information is often found in the car owner’s manual as well as a label inside the vehicle doorjamb. You want to check the pressure once a month and before long trips.
Rotation: Although this may seem like an unnecessary expense, rotating your tires will actually save you money in the long run. Ensuring that all tires wear evenly extends the life of your tires.
Alignment: Tire alignment can become awry due to daily driving impacts such as potholes. Aligning your tires ensures that the vehicle handles correctly and minimizes the wear impact to your tires.
Vibration: If your car is shaking while you are driving, there is a problem with your suspension system, steering column and/or tires. It will also expedite the wear on your tires. If your car is vibrating it will need to be seen by a safety technician such as those at Lewisville Volkswagen.
Replacing Your Tires
All tires have indication bars that let you know when your tread is too low and your tire needs to be replaced. By taking your car to a quality dealership like Lewisville VW, your tire tread can be measured by certified safety technicians who can inspect your tires using a tire tread gauge.
