Other Things to Keep in Mind
Regardless of each tire’s physical condition, improper air pressure will cause it to under perform — or even damage it. Maintaining the recommended level of air pressure in your tires is one of the easiest ways to preserve the life of your tires and allow them to provide you and your vehicle with the best level of performance possible. There are a few different ways your tires’ air pressure levels can change. Obviously, if your tire is punctured in any way, air pressure will be lost, and you’ll have to replace the tire. Something as simple as the outside temperature can also affect tire pressure, though. As the weather cools, air contracts and reduces pressure (and vice versa). In addition to checking air pressure regularly for small losses in pressure, be sure to check your tires whenever there’s a significant change in temperature or season.
Balance & Alignment
Similar to how certain parts of your shoes wear depending on how you walk, certain parts of your tires can wear more quickly based on how your vehicle drives. The easiest and most effective way to prevent this is to have them balanced and aligned regularly, based on professional recommendations. While the science and technology of tires have advanced over the years, resulting in a reduced need to have these services performed as frequently, it’s not something you want to forget about. If you’d like the wear of your tires assessed, be sure to stop by Norm Reeves Toyota San Diego for an inspection.
Tire Pressure & MPGs
In addition to preserving the performance and life of your tires, proper tire air pressure can also help your vehicle return better fuel economy. According to the United States Department of Energy, properly inflated times can return an additional 3.3 percent to your vehicle’s current fuel economy scores. When your tires aren’t properly inflated, your vehicle has to work harder to bring you to your destination, and inclement weather or adverse driving conditions only make the problem worse. Be sure to check the recommended PSI for your vehicle that’s found inside the driver’s door jam, versus the number found on the side of your tire to provide the best results.
Choosing the Proper Tire
Selecting a tire without any extra information can be overwhelming. There are economy options, performance options, top-of-the-line options and more.
