Be Kind to Your Tires By Having them Serviced at Honolulu Ford
It's obvious that tires are an essential part of your vehicle, but what's less obvious is that you need to take care of your tires to make them last as long as possible. Tires wear down over time and need to be replaced eventually, but if you take proper care of them, they can last longer. One simple thing you can do is keep your tires correctly inflated; just check the pressure every few weeks and add a few PSI here and there as needed.
Rotating your tires can also prolong their lifespan. A tire on the front left wheel is going to wear differently than one on the back left. This uneven wear shortens the lifespan of your tires and can even cause your vehicle's handling to suffer, particularly in wet weather. When your tires are rotated, each one is moved to a different position, preventing that uneven wear and ultimately helping them to last longer.
An alignment acts similarly. Everyday bumps and potholes slowly but surely knock your chassis out of alignment, which causes that uneven tire wear and can even change the way your car handles. When you have your vehicle aligned, your car's handling will improve, the tires won't wear as quickly and any odd vibrations may be sorted out..
When your tires need a little bit of attention, bring your vehicle in to Honolulu Ford. We will perform a rotation or alignment for you; and if it is time to replace your tires, we can fit your vehicle with a brand new set.
