One of the biggest areas we assist our customers in at our Honda service department relates to tire maintenance. An essential component of every vehicle, tires allow drivers to pass through a wide range of road conditions and offer stability while on the road. If tires are not properly cared for - if they get overly worn or are under-inflated - drivers can put themselves at risk of experiencing a flat or even a more serious accident. But by rotating tires on schedule, maintaining optimal tire pressure, and replacing tires when necessary, owners can be sure they’re doing everything they can to stay safe on the road. And as an added bonus, properly maintained tires lead to improved fuel economy and greater range, which can save money in the long run.
Understanding the signs of tire wear and proper inflation is something all drivers can benefit from. Many new vehicles include built-in tire pressure monitoring systems; however, if yours does not, a simple tire gauge can make it easy to know if tires are properly inflated. Making a habit of checking both tire pressure and tire wear when filling up at the pump is a great best practice. For tire wear, be sure that the grooves of your tires are at least 1/16 inches deep, though this standard can vary for all-weather tires or specific performance tires. Moreover, as a rule of thumb, vehicle owners should rotate their tires every 6,000 to 8,000 miles and consider replacing all four tires after five years of use. If you’re unsure of whether or not it’s the right time to rotate or replace tires, our service manager will be more than happy to assist.
