Considering that your tires are the only parts of your car that actually touch the road, they’re arguably the most important parts. Unfortunately, the vast majority of drivers have no idea how to maintain their tires. To avoid costly auto repair and extend the life of your tires, heed the advice in this video.
Lauren Fix, the Car Coach, recommends checking your tire pressure once a month or before a big road trip. Do not inflate your tires to the maximum pressure, but rather to the optimum pressure, which can be found in the driver’s door jamb, glovebox, or owner’s manual. It’s also important to rotate your car’s tires once every 8,000-10,000 miles and make sure your tires are properly aligned. These measures will boost your car’s fuel efficiency and ensure that your tires last as long as possible.
