How to Make Your Tires Last Longer

Car tire
It’s stating the obvious to tell North Wales drivers that tire care is important, but there are a lot of great tricks for extending tire life that many don’t know about! The service center at North Penn Mazda covers how to make your tires last longer through driving habits and maintenance below!

How to Make Your Tires Last Longer: Driving Habits

Good tire life begins with your behavior on the road. As many Lansdale know, better driving habits don’t just make you safer, they also extend the life of many vehicle components. Here are some tips for good driving habits:

  • Gentle Acceleration: When you accelerate very suddenly, it peels away tread from your tires. Make sure to not have a lead foot on the gas pedal to make your tires last longer!
  • Allow Lots of Brake Time: Skidding is also a major issue when it comes to tire wear. Give yourself time to brake so that your tires don’t get hurt in the process!

How to Make Your Tires Last Longer: Maintenance Tips

Our next category is maintenance tips. With good personal maintenance habits and the help of a trustworthy Chalfont-area service center, you can extend the life of your tires.

  • Check Tire Pressure at Gas Station: One of the simplest and cheapest tasks here is using the air pressure gauge and air pump at a gas station to make sure your tires are inflated to the right level.
  • Tire Rotation: Make sure to schedule a tire rotation to make up for the uneven wear on your tires.
  • Tire and Wheel Balancing: An unbalanced suspension can wear some tires down a lot more than others. Tire balancing and wheel balancing are great ways to prevent this from happening.
  • Check Tire Alignment:Twice a year, you should check the alignment on your tires for any problems.
  • Treadwear Rating: 500 is the mid-level tread rating on a tire. Check the tread wear rating on your selected tires to see how long they will last.
