Five Tips to Get the Most from Your Tires

Tires play a significant role in the driving experience that your vehicle delivers. When you take care of your tires, you’ll be able to ensure that your Ford continues to run safely and efficiently. There are many factors that play into the health of your tires, but we’ve selected the top five things we believe can help keep your tires on the road longer.

Keep Your Tires Running Smoothly

  • Keep Tire Pressure at Recommended Levels
    Your tires have a recommended level of pressure. Things like changing temperature can affect your tire pressure, making it important to check pressure regularly. Many new Ford models feature tire pressure monitors that will alert you if your tire pressure is too low or high. Be sure to check if your vehicle has this feature.
  • Rotate Your Tires
    Tires can wear differently depending on their location. By rotating your tires every 5,000 to 7,000 miles, you can help your tires wear evenly. Tire rotation is a service we can perform at our dealership.
  • Check Alignment
    Much like rotating your tires, checking wheel alignment can help extend the life of your tires. When you hit potholes or other obstacles, your tire alignment may be thrown off. Which could cause issues in the future.
  • Drive Carefully
    While this may seem like an obvious tip, keeping an eye on how you drive can help. If you accelerate fast or brake hard, your tires may be wearing faster than usual. By anticipating stops better, and accelerating slower, you can help keep your tire tread in good shape.
  • Check Tread Depth
    Tread is one of the best ways to tell the health of your tire. If the tread is low, it may be time to replace. Use the penny trick to see if it may be time to visit our dealership for a new set of tires.
