Did you know that proper tire maintenance will prolong the life of your tires and increase the overall safety of your vehicle?

Tires that are worn or out of alignment can be harder to handle and may not allow you to stop or maneuver your vehicle as well in an emergency situation, particularly when facing adverse weather conditions such as rain, ice or snow.

Some key tips for proper tire maintenance include:

  • Checking your tire pressure regularly every month
  • Having the alignment inspected every 25,000 kms
  • Rotating your tires every 10,000 kms to minimize wear
  • Periodically checking the depth of the tread on each tire and replace if thread is 1/16th of an inch deep. Refer to your manual for further details
