Proper Tire Maintenance: A Simple Step that Shouldn't Be Neglected

If you can't drive safely, you shouldn't drive at all. While there are many components to driving safely, one of the most important is properly maintained tires. If you don't take care of your tires, you may experience a blowout, an event that is frightening at best and deadly at worst. Here are a few tips from your friends at Wynne Volvo Cars of Hampton to help you avoid a blowout.

One way to take care of your tires and avoid a blowout is to have your tires regularly rotated. The same reason that this procedure is important to the long life of your tires makes it important to preventing a blowout: even tire wear. If your tires wear evenly, there's less chance that a single tire will become worn out to the point of failure. Another crucial detail is to replace your tires if you notice the tread becoming too low. Even with proper use in Hampton, all tires will eventually wear out. Therefore, if your tread is 2/32" or less in depth, it's time for newer, safer tires.
