When it comes to staying in control behind the wheel, the tires on your vehicle are positively crucial. After all, optimizing the traction you receive from your tires is the key to accelerating, steering, and braking properly.
At our DC area Honda dealership, we’ve seen plenty of drivers who either neglect their tires or just don’t seem to notice when they need attention. This can be a dangerous and costly mistake for motorists to make!
We recommend checking your tires at least once a month, as this will help you to notice any budding problems with your tires. Checking the tire pressure and adjusting it accordingly is important. You can expect your tire pressure to shift a pound or two during the course of a month – particularly if the weather is changing – but more than that could be a sign of a leak that needs attention.
At our Honda tire center serving DC, our experts can plug or patch most leaks. Ensuring that your tires are holding air, though, isn’t the only component of tire care.
Additionally, it’s crucial to keep an eye on your tire tread so that you can identify other problems before they become serious. Uneven tread wear, for instance, can be an indication of poor alignment or improper inflation levels. When your tread gets too low, of course, it’s time for new tires!
The experts at Pohanka Honda of Fredericksburg can help you choose the perfect set of tires when the time comes. We’ll factor in your vehicle, road conditions, and driving habits to help steer you toward the tires that will provide you with the longest lifetime and optimum performance.
If you think it’s time for new tires, or if you’re just not sure, then come in and see us. We offer extended service hours seven days a week; no need for an appointment, just bring it in!
