We know you take care of your vehicle, washing and buffing and polishing it to eternity, but how well do you take care of the tires it rolls on? Just to make sure you're giving them enough attention, we'd like to bring up the following points:
— Check your tire pressure! The manufacturer has strict guidelines for a reason, and not following those guidelines can seriously affect the tire. And the wheels, even the vehicle. A tire pressure monitoring system can help, but they often don't signal a reminder until the pressure is already too low. So check your pressure once a month. Tire Rack has a number of gauges than make it really easy. Read more, then search our selection.
— Keep those wheels aligned! Alignment has everything to do with the way your tires contact the road, which means it also influences the way your vehicle drives. If either of these two things feel off, then your tires are in danger of wearing inefficiently. Read more.
— Rotate, rotate, rotate! Each wheel position poses a different demand on the tires you've installed. Rotating them often assures even and efficient treadwear, which means your tires will last that much longer. The owner's manual in your vehicle should indicate the appropriate rotation pattern.

Keep in mind the above from the get-go, and you'll get the most out of your tires. Need to start over? Search our inventory of tires by vehicle and you'll be riding on something new in no time.
