Tire Services Are More Than Just Inspections

Posted on Posted in Blog

Tires are indeed an essential feature of every car. No regularly driven vehicle can go down the road without all four tires on them. Aside from those instances where a person will need to get to the nearest place to pull over because of a problem with the tire. Sadly, many people won’t give a second thought about the tires, and they only warrant a view is they go flat. Many will overlook the need to rotate them, or don’t understand why tire services exist in the first place if only to replace a tire that has popped.

Tire services are a critical component to ensuring the safety of your driving experience. They are what keeps your car firmly on the road. If you have ever driven a car with brand new tires and ones with nearly bald tires, you will know the difference in how a vehicle feels when traveling down the road. In a perfect car situation, all four tires will be the same brand, have the same tread depth remaining, and be relatively new. But tires don’t last forever and are only rated for a certain number of miles at which point the tire will need to be replaced. Even though there are hundreds of places that sell used tires, purchasing brand new ones when the need arises is far better because they will last longer and perform at a higher standard.

When taking your Subaru into M45 Automotive for a tire service, you may be wondering what happens. A tire rotation is the most common tire service done. During this service, a tire inspection is performed identifying if a tire rotation is necessary or not. Many car manufacturers recommend having this service done at regular intervals to even the wear on tires for maximum longevity of the tires. If you are wondering how to rotate tires, it is a relatively simple task. A technician will lift the vehicle in the air and swap the front with the rear tires, or vise versa depending on wear. Front wheel drive vehicles will want the best tires in the front, and Rear wheel drive will require the back to be in better shape. Because most Subarus are AWD, the tires need to be rotated periodically so even wear distributed from each drive axle.

The safety of your Subaru depends on the tires much more than you probably realize. A tire inspection is fast and easy to do and can put your mind at ease that nothing tire related will go wrong while you are driving. An investigation can include checking the tread depth remaining, any defects present with the tires such as dry rot, and how much air is in the casing. Improper amounts of air in the tires can be harmful on the tire itself and even result in reduced fuel economy. Car owners should have their tires looked at any time they bring their car in for servicing. They should also stick to the recommended tire rotation service intervals to prevent uneven wear and premature failure.
