HERITAGE AUTOPRO Tech Question on Tire Wear
August 3, 2020
HERITAGE AUTOPRO Tech Question:
My name is Dan. My vehicle tires wore out early and I had to replace them. What can I do to make my tires last longer?
HERITAGE AUTOPRO Answer:
Dan’s problem of premature tire wear is very common for Calgary drivers. Here are several ways to lengthen the life of your tires:
First, tires lose air pressure over time, so check them at least once a month and fill them up as necessary. A sticker on the driver’s side door jamb has the recommended pressure.
Tire rotation is also vital for Alberta drivers. Your front tires take the brunt of stopping and steering forces so they wear faster than the rear tires. They should be rotated regularly so that all four tires wear more evenly. Talk to us at HERITAGE AUTOPRO and our qualified technician will be happy to answer your questions.
Out of balance wheels can also cause a tire to wear too fast. Drivers who feel a vibration in their seat or steering wheel may have a wheel out of balance.
Finally, bad wheel alignment and worn or damaged suspension can chew through a tire very quickly. Ask your HERITAGE AUTOPRO service advisor to have your tires inspected for signs of premature wear. Your service advisor will be able to pinpoint the cause and get it taken care of.
