The Importance of Tire Maintenance

By December 25, 2017 No Comments

Importance of tire maintenance because your tires are the only part of your vehicle that comes in contact with the road. They’re your first line of defense against inclement weather. And they can significantly impact driver safety, vehicle handling, and fuel economy.

Regular tire maintenance is an important part of your ongoing preventive maintenance schedule. Routine inspections can help you identify small problems like uneven tread wear before they become major issues, which will save your business money in the long term by increasing the lifespan of your tires and reducing the likelihood of other, more expensive repairs. Monthly inspections are recommended, but if you drive over a pothole, live in a cold climate, or drive long distances, you may wish to inspect your tires more frequently.

For the best performance, your tires should:

  • Be properly inflated to the correct air pressure.
  • Have good, even tread.
  • Be properly balanced and aligned.

Poorly maintained tires can lead to premature wear and tear, flats, and even blowouts. With a Trakpro GPS tracking system, you can ensure that your tires are inspected regularly.
