Advantage Auto Tech Question On Tire Wear

Advantage Auto Tech Question:
My name is Dan. My minivan tires wore out early and I had to replace them.What can I do to make my tires last longer?
Advantage Auto Answer:
Dan’s problem – premature tire wear – is very common for Greer car owners. Here are several ways to lengthen the life of your tires:
First, tires lose air pressure over time, so check them at least once a month and fill them up as necessary. A sticker on the driver’s side door jamb has the recommended pressure.
Tire rotation is also key for SC auto owners. Your front tires take the brunt of stopping and steering forces so they wear faster than the rear tires. They should be rotated regularly so that all four tires wear more evenly. Talk to us at Advantage Auto in Greer.
Out of balance wheels can also cause a tire to wear too fast. Greer drivers who feel a vibration in their seat or steering wheel may have a wheel out of balance.
Finally, bad wheel alignment and worn or damaged suspension can chew through a tire very quickly. Ask your caring Advantage Auto technician to have your tires inspected for signs of premature wear. Your technician will be able to pinpoint the cause and get it taken care of.
