Tire wear is an inescapable part of driving; as you drive, your tires naturally wear down. However, your tires will last longer overall if they all wear down at an even rate. Rotating your tires regularly is one of the best and easiest ways to ensure even tire wear. The tires will wear down differently based on their placement on your vehicle, so having them rotated at Austin INFINITI near Round Rock, Texas evens out this wear.
It's a good idea to check your vehicle's tire pressure at least once a month. In addition, if your tires look underinflated or overinflated, or if your warning light tells you that a tire is not inflated properly, you should come to Austin INFINITI. Tires with too much air and tires with too little air can both cause problems and have shorter lifespans.
Although tire balance and wheel alignment are separate, both of these things can lead to uneven tire wear. Misaligned wheels are likely to cause tires to wear down faster on the edge or on one side, while unbalanced tires often develop a scalloped wear pattern. We recommend having these checked at least once a year.
The trained technicians at Austin INFINITI near Georgetown, Texas know exactly what to look for when they inspect your vehicle's tires, so you can trust their expert skills. By having your tires inspected regularly, you are giving certified technicians a chance to find any minor issues before they evolve into huge problems.
When you drive, try to keep your tires in mind. Speeding is bad for your tires, as it creates excess heat and friction. Any sort of aggressive driving, from fast starts to speedy cornering, can cause your tires to wear down sooner. And of course, driving over lots of obstacles and debris can cause your tires to become damaged.
