6 Tips for Extending the Life of Your Tires


At Placentia Super Service, a trusted name in our community since 1978, we recognize the significance of tires as one of your vehicle's most crucial components. Our expert technicians have compiled six tips to help you maximize the lifespan of your tires, thereby enhancing your vehicle’s performance and saving you money.

Tip 1: Maintain Proper Tire Pressure

Maintaining the correct tire pressure is essential for tire longevity. Check your tire pressure at least once a month. Underinflated tires wear out faster, leading to increased fuel consumption, while overinflated tires can cause a rough ride and potential blowouts. For more detailed information on tire maintenance, visit ourTire Services page.

Tip 2: Rotate Your Tires

Regularly rotating your tires helps ensure even wear and extends their lifespan. Follow your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation, usually every 5,000 to 8,000 miles. Rotating your tires ensures that each tire experiences a variety of wear patterns, which helps them last longer. At Placentia Super Service, we offer professional tire rotation services to keep your vehicle running smoothly.

Tip 3: Balance and Align Your Tires

Balanced and aligned tires reduce uneven wear and tear, ensuring better handling and fuel efficiency. If you notice your vehicle pulling to one side or experiencing vibrations, it might be time for an alignment. Our skilled technicians at Placentia Super Service use the latest technology to provide precise balancing and alignment services.

Tip 4: Inspect for Damage

Regularly check your tires for cuts, punctures, or embedded objects. Address any issues promptly to avoid more significant problems down the road. If you’re unsure about the condition of your tires, bring your vehicle to our shop. We’re happy to inspect them and provide the necessary repairs to keep you safe on the road.

Tip 5: Avoid Overloading

Exceeding your vehicle's load capacity stresses your tires and can lead to premature wear. Know your car’s weight limit and stick to it. Overloading not only affects your tires but can also impact your vehicle's suspension and overall handling.

Tip 6: Drive Smoothly

Aggressive driving accelerates tire wear, such as quick starts, stops, and sharp turns. Drive smoothly to extend the life of your tires. Gentle acceleration, braking, and taking turns at a moderate speed will help preserve your tires and improve your fuel efficiency. Our team at Placentia Super Service is here to provide tips and services to help you drive more efficiently.
