Tire Maintenance
  • Presented by
  • Whitney Graf

2
Play Your PART in Tire Maintenance
  • Pressure
  • Alignment
  • Rotation
  • Tread

3
Proper Pressure
  • Check monthly when tires are cold
  • Information placard has correct pressure
  • Mounted in drivers door frame of glove box
  • Front and rear pressures may differ
  • Use reliable tire pressure gauge
  • Do not rely on air pump gauge

4
Alignment action
  • Vehicles can become misaligned over time
  • Bumps, potholes create suspension problems
  • Apply brakes as you approach hole
  • Release just before striking it
  • Misalignment causes tires to ride at angle
  • May experience handling problems

5
Rotation Rules
  • Each tire wears out at different rate
  • Rotating keeps wear even
  • Should be done every 6,000-8,000 miles
  • Pattern depends on type of vehicle, tires
  • Consult owners manual
  • Adjust air pressure after rotation

6
Tread Tactics
  • Uneven tread wear indicates problems
  • Incorrect balance, under inflation, misalignment
  • Shallow tread
  • Should be at least 1/16-inch deep
  • Check tread wear indicators
  • When tread is even with bars, replace tire
