It’s no surprise that your car’s tires are some of the most important components to maintain. After all, your car’s tires are the only things that directly connect your car to the road. Continue reading to find out what tire care services you should get at your local car dealership in order for your car to maintain good fuel economy, traction, and tire life.
Your car’s tires may wear more in the front or in the back, depending on if you have front-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive. To ensure that your tires wear evenly, take your car to the dealership for a tire rotation service on a regular basis. During a tire rotation, mechanics at the dealership will switch the front tires to the rear and the rear tires to the front. This service extends your tire life as much as possible and ensures that your car has optimal traction and braking power.
Wheel Balancing and Alignment
Another thing that can affect your tire life and traction is wheels that are out of balance or out of alignment. If you’re experiencing any vibrations in your car’s seat or steering wheel, or you notice that your tires have uneven wear patterns, it’s important to ask the mechanics at your dealership to perform wheel balancing and alignment services.
Keep a close eye on the inflation level of your car’s tires. Underinflated or overinflated tires will decrease the tread life of your tires, compromise your safety, and negatively impact your car’s fuel efficiency. At least once a month, it’s a good idea to pull into the dealership to get your tire’s inflation level checked.
