North Wells Service Center Tech Question:
My name is Dan. My automobile tires wore out early and I had to replace them. What can I do to make my tires last longer?
North Wells Service Center Answer:
Dan’s problem – premature tire wear – is very common for Fort Wayne 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 important for IN 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 North Wells Service Center in Fort Wayne.
Out of balance wheels can also cause a tire to wear too fast. Fort Wayne car owners 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 friendly,honest North Wells Service Center service advisor to have your tires inspected for signs of premature wear. Your service professional will be able to pinpoint the cause and get it taken care of.
