When you invest in new tires you want to make them last as long as possible. At VIP Honda we want to help you keep your tires in top shape with proper maintenance and care. Learn more about the ways to keep up your vehicle’s tires with us, and be sure to visit our tire center in the event they need replacing.

Follow These Care Tips

  • Check the tire air pressure monthly – Not everyone realizes that tires can lose up to a pound per square inch of pressure each month, and even more in the cold winter months. Keeping tires properly inflated will not only help extend their lifespan but can also help prevent a blowout.
  • Have your tires rotated every 5,000 miles – Rotating the tires allows the ones working hardest to take a break. This is especially true for front-wheel drive models which can experience an increase in uneven tire wear.
  • Balance your wheels – After your tires are rotated, make sure to have them balanced. Proper weight distribution will help tires wear at a more even rate.
  • Have the alignment checked twice a year – You will find your tires wear out a lot faster if your wheels are misaligned. One sure sign that you might need a realignment is if your steering wheel begins to shake. This can happen over time, if you hit the edge of a curb, or even hit a pothole, so be sure to watch for the signs.
