Visual Inspection:

Inspecting your tires can help you find punctures or other visible signs of damage that could necessitate replacement. To help maintain even tread wear and prolong tire life, review this quick reference about alignment, rotation, and visual inspections. For a professional evaluation, visit A&J Exhaust and Tire Center, LLC.

Vehical Repairs:

  • It's crucial to know when it's okay to have a tire repaired and when a tire should be replaced.
  • If a tire loses air pressure, it should be removed for an internal inspection.
  • Driving on a flat tire, for even a short distance, can ruin it.
  • Most punctures, nail holes, or cuts up to 1/4 in. (.64 cm) can be repaired if the damage is confined to the tread.
  • Never repair any sidewall punctures
  • Never repair any tread punctures larger than 1/4 in. (.64 cm), and DO NOT repair tires worn below 1/16 in. (.16 cm).

Tire Balance and Alignment:

  • Having your tires balanced and your vehicle properly aligned is important for tire longevity and vehicle performance.
  • Unbalanced tires cause road vibration, which can lead to driver fatigue, premature tire wear (also known as cupping or dipping), and unnecessary wear to your vehicle's suspension
  • Tires should be balanced whenever they're mounted on wheels.
  • They should be rebalanced at the first sign of a vibration or shimmy, and once a year.

If you have multiple sets of tires, proper tire storage is a must. (Just setting them off in the corner of your garage isn’t enough.) Proper storage ensures that your tires’ appearance and performance are maintained. Before you store your tires, be sure to inspect each one for damage or uneven wear.

How to Store Your Tires

Store your tires in a clean, cool and dark location away from heat or gas. A preferable location would be under a tire cover, which you can purchase at your local tire dealer or auto parts store. If your tires are mounted on rims, stack them underneath a tire cover. (When stacking tires, be sure to stack no more than four tires for safety reasons.) If your tires are not mounted on rims, store them upright and covered. Do not stack them on top of each other or hang them from the ceiling. If your tires have whitewall or raised white lettering, store them with the whitewall or raised white lettering facing each other. Otherwise, black rubber could stain them. (The results are not pretty.)
