Tires are the reason we are able to remain in control of our vehicles. With new tires, we have optimal tread which provides our vehicles with the best grip to the road. Tread wear is one of the biggest issues when talking about tire maintenance. Regular tire rotations can help your tread last longer, keeping you from having to buy new tires sooner than normal. Richards Honda can do your tire rotation and check your tread depth for you. Our technicians are trained to know how well a tire is doing and when/if it should be changed out.
Proper vehicle alignment is a leading cause of improper tire wear. If you’re noticing your car or truck pushing to one side or another you might need a front-end alignment. Another indicator of this is if your steering wheel is angled while you’re traveling straight. A proper alignment can save you gas, tire tread life, and some major headaches in the future. Come down to Richards Honda in Baton Rouge, LA and let us give your vehicle an inspection for any of these issues.
There is no way to tell exactly how long a tire lasts. The lifespan and mileage of a tire depends of a combination of factors: its design, the driver’s habits, the climate, the road conditions and the care that's put into the tires.
1 - Keep five years in mind: after five years or more in use, your tires should be thoroughly inspected at least once per year by a professional.
2 - Ten years is a maximum: If the tires haven't been replaced 10 years after their date of manufacture, as a precaution, you should replace them with new tires. Even if they appear to be in usable condition and have not worn down to the tread wear indicator.
