Your car or truck’s tires tend to wear unevenly, causing safety concerns, reducing the lifespan of your tires, and costing you precious dollars by impacting your gas mileage.  Front tires typically wear on their outermost edges, but all tires can wear unevenly due to misalignment or imbalance.  To get the most out of your tires, it’s important to have them rotated every 4,000-6,000 miles, or every six months.  Rotating your tires by the Arlington tire rotation experts at City Garage can extend the life of your tires significantly.

Why should I rotate my tires?

 

Rotating your tires regularly prevents them from unevenly wearing.  This will extend the life of your tires, improve your gas mileage, and make your car significantly safer.  The professional team at City Garage is available for all of your Arlington tire rotation needs.

How often should my tires be balanced?

 

Your tires should be replaced every six months, or between 4,000-6,000 miles, whichever comes first.  This will prevent uneven wearing which could lead to misalignment and reduction of gas mileage.  In addition to routine tire balancing, it’s advisable to rotate your tires after any flat or patch.  The expert mechanics at City Garage are available for all of your Arlington tire rotation needs.

Why do I need Proper Air Pressure?

 

Maintaining proper air pressure allows your tires to run at optimal performance.  Tires with too low of an air pressure can run hot, affecting your handling, and could cause your car to waste pricy gasoline.  By over-inflating your tires, you run similar risks, though you’d notice the wear down the center of the tire.  The Arlington tire rotation team at City Garage can measure your air pressure and properly fill your tires.

Why do my tires wear unevenly?

 

  • Over or underinflating your tires.
  • Balancing or alignment issues.
  • Suspension or steering problems.

What can happen if I have worn tires?

  • Your tire could completely burst.
  • Increased chance of hydroplaning during a rainstorm.
  • Your tires can become more susceptible to puncture.
