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.
✔ Buycarparts.co.uk site recommends watching the tires for uneven or diamond-shaped wear, as it is extremely important to fix the reason of such wear to avoid safety hazards.
✔ Avoid tire slipping on one place. This heats up a tire and leads to deformation, that can further cause explosion or belt/non-belt separation.
✔ Store tires properly. Remember to rotate tires every 2-3 weeks when they are not in use.
Hope these easy tips will help you save your money and keep your tires in top condition as long as possible.
