5 Tips to Prolong the Lifespan of Your Tires


Let’s face it: good tires are quite expensive these days, and it is always a great idea to keep the ones you’ve got on your car, truck or SUV in top shape. According to Wikipedia, the top-5 reasons of tire failure are belt separation, non-belt separation, run-flat damage, chemical degradation and cracking.

Sure thing, there are no tires, that will last forever. However, there are several ways that will help you prolong the lifespan of your tires.

✔ Check tire pressure twice a month, using your manometer. Remember, that a built-in car pump will not always give accurate data.

✔ Check tire tread twice a month for the object that may be stuck in your tires. It is always better to get a tire fixed in a timely manner, rather than having to replace it on your way.
