If you care about something then it will last longer. This saying is also true for tires. Tires that are cared for can last much longer than tires that are uncared for. So, how do you care for your tires? The first step is to make sure that they are properly inflated.

When your tires are overinflated or underinflated then your tires don't wear evenly. When this happens your tires don't last as long as they normally would. This means that you will need to replace them more frequently, which is more money leaving your bank account. Don't waste your money by having to change your tires more frequently, save it by just regularly checking your tire pressure!

Another way that underinflated tires cost you money is by creating more resistance. With the added resistance from your deflated tires, your vehicle's engine has to work harder to push your vehicle. This means that your vehicle uses more gas to get you where you need to go.

How Do I Check My Tire Pressure?

  1. Purchase a tire pressure gauge
  2. Remove cover of tire pressure valve stem
  3. Insert gauge into the valve stem, listen for hissing sound
  4. Gauge will read a number
  5. Compare the number to the recommended PSI number in your owner's manual
  6. Fill or release air as needed to match owner's manual number
  7. Put tire pressure valve cover back on

If you are looking to extend the life of your tires and get the most bang for your buck then you should also get regular tire rotations. When you get your tires rotated, your tires will wear in a different area. When this happens, you are mitigating the damage to your tires and spreading it to a different area. Thus, your tires last longer!
