Why Tire Service Matters
Tires are extremely important, because they move your car from place to place. Therefore, perhaps more than any other part of your car, they’re prone to wear and tear. If you don’t take good care of them, not only can they fail, but they can also put your life in danger.
The elements of caring for your tires are monitoring tread, maintaining proper air pressure, and keeping them rotated and balanced, to ensure even wear and longevity. Maintaining the proper air pressure improves handling on your car, from everyday cornering to swerving in an emergency. You should check your air pressure regularly and be sure it’s being done at every service appointment.
Checking tread and for signs of wear is something you can do as a spot check. Look for cracks in the sidewalls, and check for foreign objects like screws or nails. Use the penny test to check tread in several places on the tire. Put a penny into the tread, and if you can see Lincoln’s entire head, the tread is too worn.
