December is here, which means the year is coming to a close. For many of us, this is the busiest time of year, as we are racing to the mall for those last minute gifts, stringing up the last box of Christmas lights, and going over recipes for our holiday dinners. During the midst of December, it is easy to forget about our vehicles. However, it is during this time of the year that we need our car the most -- your tire health is especially important.
- Tire tread depth: As you drive, your tires automatically get worn from rubbing on the road. If your tires are overly worn, it will take you much longer to come to a complete stop, as your old tires won’t necessarily have a good grip on the road.
- Alignment and balancing: If your tires aren’t properly balanced, your tires will wear out faster.
- Tire rotation: It is important for your tires to be rotated at your manufacturer’s recommendations. Front and rear tires will wear different because they carry different loads and have different tasks. It is essential for your tires to be rotated regularly so they wear evenly.
- Tire pressure: Sometimes, the cold weather can affect your tire air pressure. If your pressure light is on and stays on, get your tires checked by a professional, such as the technicians at Guaranteed Automotive & Transmission.
Bring your vehicle to Guaranteed Automotive & Transmission Service for an inspection, and our team will carefully examine your tires for any signs of disarray. We will make sure your tires are in pristine condition, so you have nothing to worry about. Give us a call today to schedule an appointment for an inspection.
