Why is Maintaining Your Tires Important?

Most drivers know that regularly scheduled maintenance is an important part of protecting your investment and ensuring your vehicle always delivers exceptional performance. You may not think of tires when you consider regularly scheduled maintenance, but your tires are a vital part of your vehicle, and they play an important role in your vehicle's safety and performance. One way you can ensure optimal safety and performance is by maintaining enough tread on your tires. If you're not sure about whether or not you have enough tread, stop by our service department, and we'll evaluate your tires for you.

How Does Tread Help to Keep You and Your Passengers Safe?

Tire tread is the feature that enables your tires to perform well in various weather conditions and is the most important part of your tires. The grooves of the tread create channels that water moves through and away from the car, improving contact with the road and traction. This also helps to reduce the risk of hydroplaning. If the grooves get too worn, then they can't get a good enough grip on the road which creates very dangerous driving conditions. When the tread wears out, we call those "bald tires," and they also can't create traction in snowy driving conditions, either. Even on dry roads, bald tires increase your chance of experiencing a blowout or puncture, thus compromising your safety and the safety of your passengers. That's why maintaining your tires is so important, as is replacing them when necessary. Our service department is happy to help you with any tire needs you have, just call or stop by, today!
