Your tires are the only part of your vehicle that connects it with the road and are responsible for safety, comfort, mobility, and fuel economy. Proper tire care and maintenance are, therefore, very necessary to ensure your tires stay effective. This care and maintenance can be easily done by your personal attention and with the help of our professional experts at Action Automotive. Take care of your tires, and they’ll reward you with better gas mileage and improved handling and performance. Your tires are all that stand between the road and your car, which is why it’s important to stay up to date on their maintenance. At Action Automotive, we want our customers in Trenton, ON, and surrounding areas to remain on top of tire performance and adhere to maintenance schedules outlined in their owner’s manual.

To get the most out of your tires and keep your tires in working order, these essential tire care tips will help:

Tire Pressure

The pressure of your tires can influence the way you drive. Under-inflated tires can cause irregular tire wear and can cause a tire blow out, and over-inflated tires are more likely to be damaged when hitting an obstacle. Keep your tire pressure at the recommended PSI that is outlined in the owner’s manual. Properly inflated tires will maximize tread life, improve handling, and increase fuel efficiency and overall driver safety.

Tire Tread Depth

A tire’s tread is what gives it traction on the road. Your tire has built-in tread wear indicators, also known as “wear bars.” When these bars are flush with your tire’s tread, then it’s time to get the tire replaced. If tires are bald and without much tread, you’re more likely to lose your connection with the road while driving.

Tire Rotation

When you drive your vehicle, it will wear down certain tires more than others, so you should have your tires rotated every 5,000-8,000 miles. Recommended rotation patterns for your vehicle can be found in your owner’s manual. Rotating the position of your tires will help you get the most miles out of your tires, the best traction, and improved driving safety.


Tire Balancing

Tire balancing is done by evenly distributing the weight of your vehicle, so it is fully balanced evenly across all the tires. Whenever you have your tires replaced, tire balancing should also be done as a part of the tire installation process. Balanced tires give you a smoother, more comfortable ride without feeling any vibrations coming from the wheels.


Wheel Alignment

A wheel alignment involves fine-tuning the angles of your vehicle’s suspension system so that your wheels are pointed in the right direction. A wheel alignment is performed to bring the car’s suspension into its proper configuration, positioning, and adjusting components so that wheels are aligned with each other and the road surface. Proper alignment will give you a smoother ride, fewer vibration, reduced wear on your tires, and better mileage.
