How to Care for Your Tires
Tires are straightforward on the surface. They are made of rubber and filled with air, contributing both to your car’s ability to maintain traction on the road and the overall smoothness of your ride. Regular tire maintenance, along with preventative measures like keeping proper air pressure and performing visual inspections, will ensure the longevity of your tires and your vehicle. When the time comes to service or replace your tires, U.S. Automotive in Ozark, Missouri, will be happy to help with our professional tire sales and service. Routine tire maintenance includes items like tire rotations, which help promote a more even wear pattern among all four tires, and tire balances. A tire balance ensures the tire is positioned properly in the wheelhouse; if out of balance, wobbling, hopping up and down, and vibration happens. Inadequate inflation levels can lead to many problems, such as loss of traction, a decrease in handling, and a higher probability of a blowout. Our tire sales and service technicians recommend keeping an eye on your air pressure levels and ensuring each tire is inflated to the manufacturer-recommended PSI.
