The Rubber Manufacturer’s Association (RMA) recommends taking five minutes each month to check your tires. Here are some things to look for:

  • Tire pressure: Tires that are underinflated or overinflated can wear unevenly and lead to premature tire failure. The correct tire pressure for your vehicle can be found in your owner’s manual.
  • Tread depth: The tread on your tires should be at least 2/32 of an inch deep. If the tread is less than that, it’s time for new tires.
  • Tire wear: Look for uneven wear on your tires. This can be a sign of a problem with your alignment or suspension.
  • Tire damage: Check for cuts, bulges, or cracks in your tires. Any of these problems could indicate a safety hazard.

In addition to checking your tires regularly, it’s also important to have them rotated and balanced every 6,000 to 8,000 miles. Rotating your tires helps to evenly distribute wear, while balancing your tires ensures that they are rolling true.

Use the following tips to help you stay on top of tire maintenance:

  1. Check tire pressure to ensure proper inflation. Under inflation can lead to excess heat, uneven tire wear, and decreased braking and handling capabilities, which may cause structural failures like blowouts and tread separation. Properly inflated tires will maximize tread life, improve handling, and increase fuel efficiency and overall driver safety.
  2. Follow proper tire rotation schedules. Recommended rotation patterns for your vehicle can be found in your owner’s manual. Routine tire rotations equalize and enhance front-to-rear and side-to-side tire wear. Remember: tire rotation will not prevent or circumvent wear issues caused by worn mechanical components.
  3. Balance tires as necessary. Out-of-balance tires may be detected in bumps that become more noticeable at higher speeds. Balancing tires is necessary during initial installation and during a remount. Wheel Alignment Service.
  4. Install new tires in sets or pairs. The addition of one new tire to the rotation cycle can cause instability and create vehicle handling issues. When new tires are needed, two new tires should be installed on the rear of a vehicle, and the partially worn tires should be moved to the front of the vehicle.
  5. When the time comes to store your tires for next season, consider a dark place away from direct sunlight with low humidity. Tires should be stored away from solvents, grease, oil, or any ozone-producing electrical equipment, which have deteriorating effects on tires.
  6. Be mindful of abnormal tire wear or damage to your tires. Watch for signs of punctures, embedded objects, cracks, and bulges.
  7. Always keep a spare tire, and make sure it’s properly inflated and ready for use. You never know when you’re going to need it.
