Why Is Maintaining Your Tires Important?

You know that you need your tires in good working order to drive your vehicle. So, perhaps a better question than why your tires are important is why you should maintain them before you're forced into frantically searching for "flat tire repair near me." The average car weighs over 4,000 pounds, which is a lot of weight sitting on your tires. Differences in inflation between tires causes your vehicle's weight to be distributed unevenly. Over time, that uneven weight distribution can lead to issues with your vehicle's balance, which then affects its safety and performance. Thus, following a routine rotation service is vital. You'll find such a service here at Meineke #261 in Oak Lawn, IL.

How Often Should You Inspect Your Tires and Wheels?

Proper inspections of your tires should happen at least once a month. If you often drive in rough terrain or other dangerous conditions, you should inspect your tires and wheels twice a month or more. This is because tires can become worn down or damaged very easily in certain conditions. Sharp rocks or other debris can weaken tires and lead to premature blowouts and necessitate the need for a repair or replacement. Bring your vehicle to Meineke #261 in Oak Lawn, IL for an inspection and tire repair cost estimate. This will help you avoid having to search for "flat tire repair near me."

Why Proper Maintenance of Tires and Wheels Is Important

Tires are vital to the function and safety of your car or truck. The ridges and patterns that make up the tread of your tire are what help it grip the road and shed water to increase traction. When a tire's tread wears down, your vehicle no longer has the same traction and can become more unpredictable or more difficult to handle safely. Underinflated or overinflated tires often cause sidewall damage that can be dangerous, which can lead to sudden tire explosions on the road. Your tires should always be kept properly inflated.

Do Your Tires Need to Be Replaced?

If the tire pressure sensor light illuminates on your vehicle's dashboard, should that be an automatic sign that your tires need to be replaced? Not necessarily. Depending upon the current condition of your tires, a simple repair may be all that needs to extend their life and save you money. How are you to know? Finding out for yourself literally only takes a penny. Insert a penny into the tread of your tires, with President Lincoln's head facing downward. If any part of his head is hidden by the tread, your tires can still be used. If the dashboard light continues to go off, you may want to consider a tire pressure sensor replacement. Any tire-related questions you may have can be answered by our friendly staff at Meineke #261 in Oak Lawn, IL.

How Can You Save On Tire Repair and Replacement Costs?

If you're in need of new tires, you probably have concerns about the actual cost of tire replacement. While worn tires increase your risk of performance and stability issues on the road, that doesn't make affording new tires any easier. Fortunately, we at Meineke in Oak Lawn, IL can.
