Important Tips for Maintaining Your Tires

Keep Them Clean

Tires in Bluefield, WVThe first step to making your tires last longer is to keep them clean. Wash your wheels with soap and water, and scrub them free of tar and road grime using a brush with soft bristles.

Apply UV Tire Protection

The sun's UV rays can wreak havoc on rubber, so apply some UV tire protectant. 303® Automotive Protectant Spray is a good choice; it protects rubber, vinyl and plastic against sun damage. While you're at it, wipe down your dashboard and your wiper blades.

Check Air Pressure Regularly

Proper inflation is key to long-term tire health. Make sure your tires are fully inflated by checking tire pressure every time you fill up your fuel tank. Don't forget to replace the valve stem cap!

Check for Uneven Tire Wear

Check your tires for uneven tread wear. If you notice the tires are wearing unevenly, have them rotated. Severe wear can indicate an alignment problem, so if your tires seem to be wearing quickly, schedule service with a reputable auto repair shop.
