Fall Tire Maintenance – Columbia CT

Autumn is upon us and it’s time to think about fall auto and tire maintenance. In southern New England, snow and icy conditions can visit us at any time. Seasonal car maintenance will assure that you are driving a safe, well maintained vehicle.

Tire Pressure

Your tires risk experiencing a blowout when hot temperatures overinflate your tires and cold temperatures underinflate them. Always consult your car owner’s manual or driver’s side door well for the recommended PSI (pounds per square inch) for your tires. To get an accurate pressure, check the pressure when the tires are “cold” – before you have driven it.

Tire Rotation

Tires that are not regularly rotated tend to experience uneven wear. Front tires wear down as a result of friction during turns.

Replace worn tires

Tire treads wear down after prolonged use. Your car’s front tires may show wear before the rear tires, and worn areas are unable to generate the friction needed to stop your car smoothly. Tires with worn treads are also more susceptible to damage by nails, screws, or other obstacles. It’s a good idea to have your tread length checked during routine maintenance such as an oil change, and replace your tires if the tread length has worn down.

Check Your Spare…

Were you aware that many new vehicles no longer include a spare tire at purchase? Getting a flat or having a tire fail on a new car is not unheard of. Don’t wait to have a blowout to discover there’s no spare under the trunk. Call Tire and Brake Clinic today to get your new tires or to schedule maintenance or repair for your car or truck. Call 860-228-0212 today.
