At Lithia Subaru of Oregon City We Want to Help Your Tires Last as Long as Possible
Tires are obviously an important part of your vehicle, but they often don't get the attention they deserve. What some drivers don't know is that there are a few simple things that you can do to make your tires last much longer than they would if they didn't receive any care. To keep your tires ready to take on the Oregon City roads, bring your vehicle to Lithia Subaru of Oregon City to have those tires tended to.
When your tires stay in the same position on your car for a long period of time, they will start to wear unevenly and need to be replaced sooner. This is because the wheels are not angled perfectly up and down, and instead sit at a slight angle relative to the road. Additionally, the front and rear wheels sit at different angles, so rotating the front tires to the rear and vice versa can help your car's tires wear more evenly.
Having your vehicle aligned is another way to prolong the life of your tires. Over time, your vehicle's chassis endures a lot of abuse from bumps in the road, putting the wheels out of the manufacturer's specified tolerances. Leaving the alignment out of specification for an extended period of time can result in uneven tire wear, which may end in you needing to replace the tires sooner than you normally would.Another oft-overlooked service is tire balancing. Not only does improper balancing cause uncomfortable vibrations, but it also can cause patch-like wear on the tires. Having you tires rebalanced at our service center can help avoid these issues.
If you want to help your tires stick around longer, make an appointment at our service center. We would be happy to rotate your tires, align your wheels, and replace your tires when the time finally comes.
