When should tires be rotated?

Due to how they're built, cars put a different amount of weight on each tire. Scheduling regular rotations can help even out the difference in wear. While the number can vary depending on car types, on average you should try to have your tires rotated every 5,000 to 8,000 miles.

When do tires need to be replaced?

As a general rule, you should be getting new tires every five years, with professional inspections at least once per year. To stay on top of tire maintenance at home, regularly check the tread wear indicator to determine when it may be time for service.

How does the air pressure of my tires impact gas mileage?

Simply checking your air pressure can save you money on gas in the long run. Underinflated and overinflated tires can have an impact on fuel efficiency, so it's important to continuously check to be sure the air pressure is at the manufacturer's recommended level.

How do I know if my tires need air?

The quickest way to tell if your tires need air is to use an air pressure gauge, which you can find at almost any auto parts store. These gauges measure the pressure in pounds per square inch (PSI), which you will compare the to the recommended level listed in your owner's manual. If your PSI is lower than recommended, that means it is time to add some more air.

What wears out car tires?

Car tire tread is what keeps your drive smooth; however, a lot of things can wear it down, including:

  • Underinflated tires
  • Overinflated tires
  • Tire alignment is off

Be sure to routinely check the tread wear indicator so you can continue to drive safely with optimal performance.
