Maintenance Tips

Tire Inflation

One of the best ways to maximize your tire life and fuel mileage is to have your tires properly inflated at all times.

As the seasons change and with it warmer or cooler temperatures, the air pressure in your tires need to be adjusted accordingly. Running tires low on air can cause excessive heat to build and the tire may blow out. Tires should be checked every month if possible but at least every 3 months. We inflate tires to the proper pressure when any suspension repair or alignment is performed but also at regular maintenance schedules.

You can find the proper pressures for you car in the owner’s manual or many times it is on the driver’s door post. If you want to test the pressure yourself we suggest you buy a good reliable tire gauge at an auto parts store.

If you have any questions about your car’s tire air pressure, tire wear or alignment problems, feel free to give us a call.
