How to Make Your Tires Last Longer


How to Make Your Tires Last Longer

Most people look for ways to stretch each dollar. From the grocery store to vehicle maintenance, it seems that most people are looking for ways to save and make their dollar go the furthest. When it comes to your vehicle’s tires, they can be relatively pricey to replace. Here is a list of ways to make your tires last longer and save money.

Monitor Driving

Aggressive acceleration, braking, and cornering add stress on your tires face, also reducing their lifespan. Monitoring your driving, staying within the speed limits, and properly braking assist with expanding the life of your tires. This can help to preserve their overall lifespan, stretching your dollar the furthest.

Maintaining Tire Pressure

Regularly checking your wheels to ensure they are inflated to the manufacturer’s recommended PSI helps to prevent premature tire wear. Having properly inflated tires also improves vehicle handling and fuel economy because it takes less energy to make your tires roll. It is important to remember that changes in temperature can alter tire pressure, so checking PSI when the weather changes is always a good idea.

Rotate Tires

Rotating your tires about every 8,000 kilometers or so helps to preserve their overall life expectancy and allows them to wear more evenly. Front tires tend to wear faster than the back, so rotating the front tires to the back (and vice versa) helps to even out the wear.

Maintaining the Life of Your Tires

Like most things, car wheels don’t do well being directly in the sun’s harmful UV rays. The UV rays from the sun can cause your tires to age faster, so when you park your car try to find shade to reduce your tires exposure to the sun. Also, if you change your tires each season make sure the unused tires are stored in a cool place out of the sun’s reach.

Following these simple steps may help in preserving the life of your tires. Not conducting regular maintenance on your Subaru can result in a large, costly, bill. Maintaining your vehicle’s condition typically helps to extend the life of your vehicle. By keeping up with regular appointments and taking care of your vehicle it can assist in extending the life of the car and hopefully save you money.
