Check the tire air pressure monthly – Tires can lose up to a pound per square inch of pressure each month. It’s best to keep them at the correct levels. In the winter, they could lose more and the summer will cause them to gain more. Make sure you’re checking the levels for your safety.
Have your tires rotated every 5,000 miles – Especially with front-wheel drive models, there can be uneven tire wear. Rotating the tires allows the ones working hardest to take a break.
Balance your wheels – After your tires are rotated, make sure to have them balanced. If the weight is distributed to one wheel more than the other, this could also create uneven wear.
Have the alignment checked twice a year – If your wheels are misaligned, you’ll find they will wear out a lot faster. This is easy to notice as the steering wheel may 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.
