Tire Maintenance and Safety

By | Dealer News, Safety, Service News | No Comments

Tire Maintenance and Safety

Safety, it’s a common topic when talking about cars. One of the most overlooked safety features on a car are the tires. Your car tires are the only part of the car that have direct contact with the road. Because of their direct connection with the road, tires are critical to safe driving, they affect your braking, turning, and traction. We recommend visually checking your tires at least once a month for signs of over or under inflation, tread wear or other tire damage such as a puncture.

How to check for over or under tire inflation

During a visual tire inspection, an over inflated tire will look bloated in the tire’s middle section. This creates wear primarily in the center of the tread, with less wear at the tire’s edges. Under-inflated tires have too little air pressure causing the tire’s outer edges to contact the road. This creates wear primarily on both edges of the tire tread, with less wear in the center. Other tire wear may show up on the edge of the tire, this typically occurs when the wheels are out of alignment. If you see tire wear, it’s best to get them checked out! Our friendly Service Advisors at Wilde East Towne Honda are ready to help you and your tire needs. You can schedule an appointment here or stop by during business hours to get your car maintained by professionals.

Proper Tire Pressure

It’s also a good idea to check the tire pressure using a tire gauge. Often times the tire’s sidewall identifies a maximum cold inflation pressure, but that’s not necessarily the correct pressure to use for your vehicle. To find the correct pressure for your specific vehicle, check your owners manual. In most cases, your owners manual will also give you alternative pressures based on load and/or speed. You can also find a PSI number on the vehicles placard located on in the drier’s side doorjamb. The tire information placard will tell you the vehicle’s weight capacity, the Original Equipment (OE) tire sizes, and the recommended inflation pressures for the tires.

TPMS

Don’t be alarmed if you see your tire pressure light turn on when experiencing a sudden shift in weather. Weather variations are common in Wisconsin, our Service Department usually receives the most inquiries about tire pressure or the tire light (TPMS) being on during spring, fall and winter. Reasons other than weather fluctuation may also be causing your TPMS light to turn on, so it’s important to check your tires. If your TPMS light turns on, don’t panic. You can check your tire pressure and adjust it or your can stop by our Service Center and let our Advisors and Technicians take care of you and your tires for you.
