Spring Tire Maintenance
Vehicle tires are essential when it comes to the safety of the occupants. Having properly rotated tires, adequate tire tread, and ideal tire inflation is key to enhancing your safety and the safety of your loved ones. Unfortunately, winter can take a toll on the tires of your car. That’s where spring tire maintenance comes in handy. With rough roads and wet weather on the horizon, our service centre wants to assist you in staying safe when taking on adventurous trips around Ontario.
From black ice to heavy snowfall, winter roads can be unpredictable. These harsh conditions can harm your tires, reducing the traction and grip of your car. Winter tires feature deep tread depths and plenty of biting edges that deliver traction on ice. Speed and dimensional characteristics make summer tires capable and suitable for enhanced performance in dry and wet conditions.
After you take off your winter tires for summer or remove your all-season tires, remember to wash and spray them off before storing them. Washing them helps to get rid of excess salt that can cause corrosion. It would be best if you also stored them in cool and dry places to keep them in tip-top shape and ready for the next season.
Consider swapping out your winter tires as you near spring. All-season and summer tires are more suitable for handling ice-free and snow-free roads. The unique tread rubber on winter tires that enhances traction on slippery surfaces cannot be effective during spring. Furthermore, they will tend to wear faster in warm conditions since they are designed for cold temperatures. By swapping the tires, you will reduce the wear and tear effect, enhancing the effectiveness and lifespan of your tires.
Tire rotation entails switching and repositioning your tires from back to front and side to side of the vehicle. Rotating your tires minimizes wear and tear and maximizes the tires’ tread life. Uniform tread wear and tear ensures that all tires have uniform tread depth. This plays a significant role in keeping handling and traction consistent on all wheels.
