Improve Tire Safety & Performance with Tire Maintenance in Lethbridge

Your tires begin to wear as soon as you pull your car out of your driveway. Worn-out tires are dangerous because they do not provide enough traction to stop suddenly if necessary. The tread on your tires should be examined to ensure that they are not too low and there are no cracks or damage. Weakened tires have an increased chance of popping and that always seems to happen at the worst times—during bad weather or when you’re late for an appointment.

Keep your tires driving at peak performance by following these tire safety tips:

Tire Safety Tips
Check tire pressure approximately once a week
Low tire pressure can reduce fuel economy, handling and performance
It is best to measure your tire pressure when your tires are cold—wait at least three hours after driving

Check to see if your tires look dry or like they are cracking
This is a sign that you need new tires

Rotate your tires every 6 months or every 10,000 kilometers

Get wheels aligned regularly

Poorly aligned wheels will cause your car to “drag” on the road

Check your spare tire every month and keep it properly inflated so it’s ready for use when you need it
