Tire Service Near Buena Park
Tire Service at Premier Chevrolet of Buena Park
Your tires take a lot of abuse every day. Just think about it. They travel at 50, 60, and 70 mph or more over asphalt, gravel, and dirt, hitting potholes at high speeds around Buena Park, Santa Ana, and Los Angeles. They may crawl over curbs or hit sharp corners. With all of these challenges, it’s no wonder that tires need care. You can get your tires serviced at Premier Chevrolet of Buena Park.
Maintaining Your Tires
There are several things you can do to maintain your tires and help them last longer. Monitoring tire pressure and tire tread, rotating the tires, and keeping the wheels aligned will all help your tires continue to function for you without needing to be replaced.
Wheel alignment refers to the angle that which the tires touch the road. When they are out of alignment, it makes steering more difficult and causes the tires to wear faster. Misalignment can happen because of hitting too many bumps in the road, driving over an uneven surface, and hitting a curb or other obstacle too hard. You often need a wheel alignment when you’ve been in an accident because the impact can cause the alignment to change.
When you get a wheel alignment, the service technicians often check the balance of your tires. If the tires are out of balance, they can wear faster and provide a bumpy ride. If you feel your vehicle vibrating as you drive, it may indicate one or more wheels need to be balanced.
Your tires are designed to work best at a certain level of pressure. Over- or under-inflation can cause problems and reduce the life of your tire. Newer models have a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), but you should always check your tires on a regular basis to see if they are properly inflated. If you don’t have the tire gauge to check the tires, you can always drop by Premier Chevrolet of Buena Park to have the service technicians run a quick check of your tire pressure.
Tires need to be rotated every so often to keep the tread wearing evenly. A tire doesn’t wear evenly and in time, you can see the difference. To ensure that the tread is wearing the way it should, you should have the tires rotated. They switch positions on the vehicle so that they will touch the pavement at a different angle.
