Causes of Premature Tire Wear

tire wearWouldn’t it be nice if car tires lasted forever? Unfortunately, no matter what you do, there will come a time when you need to make a change.

However, there are steps you can take to avoid premature tire wear. As a result, your tires will last longer, thus saving you both time and money.

There are many causes of premature tire wear:

1. Neglecting to rotate your tires when needed. Become familiar with the benefits of regular tire rotation, as this will open your eyes as to why it is a habit you should get into.

2. Improper air pressure. Do you have too much air in your tires? Not enough? Either way, this can cause trouble, including premature tire wear. Consider doing this: check your air pressure every time you fill up your car. This will ensure that it is never too high or too low.

3. Balance issues. Improper balance can cause the tire to wobble, thus leading to improper wear. This is often accompanied by steering wheel vibration. If you believe one or more tire needs balanced, it is important to address this concern without delay.

Premature tire wear is something you want to avoid. Instead, you want to do whatever it takes to ensure that your tires last a long time. If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to contact us. We can help you better understand your tires, including the steps you can take to make them last as long as possible.
