During a down-economy, extending the life of your tires will save you money. The data supports that regularly scheduled auto repair and proper tire maintenance reduces the risk of major repairs.
Reliable transportation is essential right now for a lot of people. Without a doubt, we have all faced some changes in our work lives and home lives as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Shelter-In-Place ordinances changed the driving habits for everyone.
Even though you may be driving less, your family fleet of vehicles still require maintenance. After all, motion is lotion, and a vehicle needs to be driven at least once a week if it is to remain dependable. When you start your car, for example, the fluids circulate, the gears shift, the wheels turn, and the battery charges. Just like your body, when your car remains stagnant, it can become sluggish the longer it sits.
But what exactly is “proper tire maintenance”? Proper tire maintenance consists of the correct air pressure, the tread depth, balancing the wheels, and making sure the wheel alignment meets factory recommendations -- especially if you have ADAS technology-based cameras and sensors. If any of these components are ignored, tire issues can potentially cause an accident. Therefore, we recommend that you visually inspect your tires on a monthly basis. Also, you should pay attention to any unusual noises you hear while driving, for they could indicate a larger issue. Here is a helpful video that will show you how to visually inspect your tires:
