An often neglected but very important part of proper car maintenance is tire care. Long road trips and hot summer roads can take a major toll on your tires and brake pads, and without proper care this can lead to more serious damage to your car. It is always important to keep in mind when you last rotated your tires or replaced the pads, and at Coast Nissan our experts can examine your car and ensure it is ready for the road. Stop by our San Luis Obispo car dealership today and let our Nissan service team do the rest.
Why Is Tire Rotation Important?
Though tires rotate all the time on the road, a tire rotation involves moving the tires on one wheel to another. This helps to reduce uneven wear on your tires. When you turn a corner, the outside edges of the front tires lean over more while the rear tires simply follow along. This causes the front tires to wear down much faster and they will need replacement much sooner. It is far easier and often cheaper to buy tires as a set of four, so rotating the tires and making sure they are all at the appropriate pressure will save you money in the long run.
Other Important Tire Services
Another factor that can result in your tires wearing out faster is improper wheel alignment. As you travel over bumps, holes or uneven roads, the irregular movements can throw your tires out of alignment. This can even reduce your gas mileage and overall handling of the vehicle. Our service professionals can quickly analyze your vehicle to see if it needs realignment.
