Simple Tips for Checking Your Tires

Proper tire pressure and tread are important for giving your car traction and improving your gas mileage. Two simple routine inspections of your tires can extend the life of your tires and help you get to your destination safely.

Tire pressure should be checked regularly with a pressure gauge. The pressure should be kept at the manufacturer’s recommended level, which is found in the owner’s manual for your vehicle. If your tires are improperly inflated, add or remove air to get to the proper pressure. Check tire tread with an upside-down penny, inserted into the tread. If all of Abraham Lincoln’s head is visible, your tires are worn and need to be replaced.

The best way to check the status of your tires is to have a qualified service person inspect them. Schedule an appointment at Autosaver Ford in Comstock today to have your tires looked at.
