Tire Mounting And Balancing

Tires are one of the most important components of your car. They are the only thing between you and the road. It is important to check your tire’s condition often to ensure they are in a proper operating condition to get you to where you need to go safely. Here are some things that should be checked often on your tires:

  • Tire inflation – The tire psi should be set at what the manufacturer recommends. This can usually be found on the door placard.

  • Tread depth

  • Tread wear

  • Overall tire condition
