Your vehicle’s tires provide so many important functions to the safe operation of your car or truck. One of them allows you to safely stop your vehicle. Another is to enable you to safely maneuver on our roads, especially during the monsoon storms we experience here in the valley. So, when was the last time you had your tires inspected?
With the technology of today’s modern engines and motor oils, the oil change intervals on some cars can be 10,000 miles. For most people, during the oil change service was when the tires were inspected and tire pressures were adjusted. For today’s average driver driving a vehicle that has a 10,000 mile oil change interval, the tires would be inspected every 10 months! That is too long between inspections. The last thing you want to experience is the failure of a tire while driving at highway speeds.Your tire pressures should be checked and adjusted every month and before any extended road trip as it is normal for tires to lose air pressure over time, not to mention the changes in pressure due to changes in the weather. Don’t forget to check the spare tire. Nearly 80% of the spare tires we check for first time customers at Tech 1 Auto have severely underinflated spare tires. Many of them are completely flat.
Don’t have a tire failure ruin your road trip. Have your tires inspected today.
