It really is a no-brainer, tires are a critical component of your vehicle. Let’s just take a moment though and consider what we demand from our tires. Truck tires are responsible for supporting the weight of the vehicle and its load, absorbing road shocks, providing traction, torque and braking forces to the road surface and maintaining and changing the direction of travel. That’s a lot! And yet, we find that many drivers seem to neglect regular tire maintenance and service.
At Foothills Group we understand the high demands that are naturally put on vehicle tires. This is why we offer full tire services for new tires, rims and TPMS sensors. Not only will we service your current tires, but we also have a large inventory of new tires and offer full installation service with everything we sell.
How to improve the lifespan of your tires
Modern-day vehicle tires are designed and manufactured with advanced technology and great care to provide thousands of miles of travel. But they still require regular maintenance in order to provide maximum safety, performance and service life. Below is a list of steps you can take to ensure you’re getting the best longevity out of your truck tires:
- Ensure proper tire size, type and load capacity
- Maintain proper inflation pressure
- Avoid overloading your vehicle
- Receive regular inspection and tire rotation
- Access tire repair when needed
- Maintain vehicle condition, alignment and maintenance
- Practice good driving habits
With proper tire care, you not only extend the life of your tires, but you also benefit from increased safety, better fuel efficiency, more accurate vehicle handling and an all-around smoother ride.
