Rotate Your Tires

Rotate Your Tires | Toronto, ON

Over the course of their lifespan, your car’s tires will wear down. The type of wear your tires will experience depends on the drive train your vehicle has.

  • Your wheels will wear down unevenly.
  • Uneven tire tread can make it difficult to control your car.
  • Rotating your tires regularly ensures your tires will wear down in an even pattern.
  • This extends your tires’ life and saves you money.

Check Your Tires Regularly

Regular tire inspection should be on your to-do list each month, allowing you to keep your tires in tiptop shape throughout the year.

  • Check for any bulging, bald spots, or worn treads.
  • Proper tire pressure can reduce the potential of a flat tire and slightly increase your fuel efficiency.
  • Use an air pressure gauge and make sure that each tire’s PSI (pounds per square inch) is within the manufacturer’s recommended range.
  • This range can be found in your car’s owner’s manual or on the driver’s side door jamb.
