Most car owners don’t realize the impact tires have on vehicle performance. Tires are the only moving link between the road and the vehicle. It is a tire that offers a smooth driving experience, even on winding and rough roads. Tires are the most crucial part of a vehicle. Yet car owners remain clueless about maintaining their tires. Ignoring the signs of aging on tires is not smart. So we found some tips to increase tire life.
How to increase tire life?
The question that keeps coming back to a car owner’s mind is, “How can we increase tire life?” Well, you have to be careful and watchful. The healthier the tires, the longer they last.
Rotating tires can significantly increase the longevity of your tires. The reason for this is that the drive axle tires are more prone to damage than the free axle tires due to less friction. Therefore, rotate tires at regular intervals to reduce the risk of blowouts and punctures. You can even bring a spare wheel if you wish. Rotating the tires equalizes the damage between all five tires.
With regular wheel alignment, you can ensure that all tires are evenly damaged. Additionally, in doing so, any faulty suspension components will also enter your observation. Therefore, it is a great method to keep your tires and your car’s suspension in good shape.
Correct air pressure
Air pressure should be checked periodically. Modern cars inform the owner if the air pressure drops in any of the four tires. You should keep the air pressure as high as the manufacturer recommends. You can find it in the manual or on the driver’s door. Over-inflation and under-inflation should be avoided as over-inflation impacts braking and the risk of breakout increases. Under-inflation has an impact on braking and acceleration. The tire becomes more susceptible to damage in such situations. This is the best way to increase the life of your tires.
Routine Inspection of Suspensions
Your tires are directly connected to the suspension. If something goes wrong with the suspension components, it directly affects the health of the tire. It would help if you had a regular suspension inspection to ensure the long life of your tires.
Using OEM specification wheels and tires,
Nowadays, motorists tend to change the rims and wheels of their cars to give them a striking look. We recommend that you have it done by a tire specialist. However, this should be avoided. Using wide tires can be a good thing, but it changes at least one of the parameters of the car.
Avoid sudden pauses and accelerations.
Sudden braking and acceleration can adversely affect the life of your car’s tires. Due to the generation of friction during acceleration and braking. Therefore, unnecessary braking and accelerating should be avoided.
