Follow These Care Tips

  • Check the tire air pressure – We recommend checking the tire air pressure monthly. Tires can lose up to a pound per square inch of pressure each month which will impact their lifespan and your safety. In the winter, they could lose more and the summer will cause them to gain more.
  • Have your tires rotated every regularly – The general guideline is every 5,000 miles, though that could vary depending on the type of driving and amount of hauling you do. Especially with front-wheel drive models, there can be uneven tire wear. Rotating the tires allows the ones working hardest to take a break.
  • Make sure your wheels are balanced – If the weight is distributed to one wheel more than the other, this could also create uneven wear. Making sure they are balanced after a tire rotation will prevent that.
  • Check the alignment twice a year – Misaligned wheels will wear out a lot faster, so make sure you check your alignment twice a year. This can happen over time, if you hit the edge of a curb, or even hit a pothole, so be sure to watch for the signs like the wheels shaking.
