In terms of vehicle safety, the importance of having dependable tires cannot be overstated. As such, proper tire maintenance should be a priority for all drivers.
While that statement may seem obvious, many drivers are guilty of neglecting their tires and not performing regular maintenance on them. Neglecting your tires can lead to long-term damage for several of your vehicle’s components, including the suspension and axle among others.
Saint’s Automotive Service Center offers the following services to help you prolong the life of your tires.
Alignment. If your wheels aren’t properly aligned, your vehicle’s suspension can become warped and your tires’ lifespan can be drastically reduced. The American Automobile Association (AAA) recommends that you have a wheel alignment performed at least once per 12,000 miles. You should get this done sooner if you start to feel your vehicle’s steering system veering to one side or another.
Balancing/Rotating. No matter what wheel-drive your vehicle might be, its front and rear tires will perform different functions and produce different rates of wear. Consistently rotating your tires is imperative to their health – AAA recommends you get this done every 6,000 miles or so.
Repairs. Improperly repaired tire can potentially pose a safety concern for you and your passengers. At Saint’s Automotive Service Center in Princeton, MN, our tire experts can determine whether or not your tires can be salvaged or if they must be replaced. If your tires are repairable, our highly experienced technicians will make sure that the job is done properly and get you back on the Mille Lacs / Sherburne County roads in a timely manner.
