Tire Care 101
Tires are remarkably simple in their design (just a piece of rubber), but to dismiss them as being unimportant is a huge mistake. Any time a piece of equipment is the link between your vehicle and the road, its importance can’t be overstated. It’s imperative that the tires on your car are the correct size and design for your specific make and model. This may seem obvious, but your tires also must always be equally inflated to the manufacturer recommended PSI, which can be found on the tires themselves. You should also know that tires do have a finite lifespan. Eventually, all tires will need to be replaced. Fortunately, Van Horn Budget Auto near Manitowoc, WI is an expert resource for all things tires.
Maintaining your tires is just as important as picking out the right ones in the first place. As stated above, they’ll need to be equally inflated to proper PSI. Inconsistent inflation (having one lower or higher than the rest) can create unsafe driving conditions and cause damage to your vehicle. On that note, your vehicle alignment is a big factor in the performance and lifespan of your tires. Any vehicle whose alignment is off is subject to quicker deterioration of its tires.
The Right Tires For Driving Conditions
Last and certainly not least, the tire you choose here in our car parts center near Sheboygan, WI should also factor in the specific kinds of driving conditions you will be encountering most frequently. If you’re behind the wheel of a used SUV with off-road capabilities, tires that are larger in size and have deeper tread make the most sense. Conversely, sedans and coupes that are designated for the roads will perform best with a smaller and sportier tire.
It’s one thing to talk the talk, but we walk the walk at Van Horn Budget Auto and when it comes to tires, we’ve got you covered in every way imaginable. Our expert team of technicians in the service center is all you’ll ever need. We’ll assess the tread levels on your tires, rotate them as needed, and replace them when the time comes.
