Without a good pair of shoes, it’d be difficult to get around — and the same standard applies to your vehicle’s tires. Replacing good tires can be expensive, which is why it’s so important to maintain them. Here are a few tips from your reliable Albuquerque tires shop to get the most out of your tires:
Tire balance: A good set of tires will have deep tread, stable side walls and will have been balanced for high speed handling. If your tires seem to jump around a lot when you drive, it’s probably time for them to be re-balanced. If you bring your vehicle in to your local Albuquerque tires shop to have your tires re-balanced, we’ll also make sure there are no major issues underneath the carriage of your vehicle like a broken tie-rod or control arm.
Tire Inflation: Keeping your tires properly inflated means you’ll increase their lifespan, save gas mileage, improve steering and stop quicker.
Tire Alignment: Proper tire alignment is critical to avoid excessive wear on either the inside or outside of the tire. Have your tires rotated at every other scheduled oil change to ensure your Albuquerque tires wear evenly.
A Good Spare Tire: In the event of a flat or a blow-out, you’re going to need a good spare tire to get you back home or to your local Albuquerque tires shop to have it fixed. A thorough preventive tire maintenance plan will include making sure your spare tire is ready to go when it's needed.
Tires can cost you anywhere from $50-$250 — a solid investment. That’s why it’s so important to maintain them. Bringing your vehicle into an Albuquerque tires shop to have an ASE-Certified mechanic perform regular maintenance will help you get the most out of your tires.
