A Check List for Spring Tire Care
Your tires are one of the most important mechanisms of your vehicle. By providing the appropriate care to your tires you can help extend their life and stay safer on the roads. With spring weather creating different driving conditions like wet roads, it is essential you check your tires to make sure they’re prepared. Use this check list for completing spring tire care:
- Routine Tire Rotations – It is recommended to get regular tire rotations all year long, typically at every other oil change. It is very important to get your tires rotated in the spring season because winter weather can cause irregular tread wear.
- Checking Tire Tread – Tire tread is an important part of your safety on the road. The tread of your tires allows you to grip the road properly, especially in rainy conditions that spring brings about. Having low tire tread can put you more at risk to hydroplane or lose grip of the road. You can use the penny test found in the tire section of our FAQ page (http://www.hankgraffmtpleasant.com/service/faq) to check your tread, or have our experts take a look your tires.

It is important to check the air pressure of your tires regularly, to ensure they are Maintaining the correct air pressure gives your vehicle better fuel economy, keeps you safer on the roads, and provides a smoother ride as you drive.
- Changing Your Tires – It is important to have winter tires on your vehicle during the winter season, but what about when the winter weather is over? We recommend switching to all season tires. Having all season tires will give you longer tread life with your winter tires, better fuel economy, and a quieter ride on the road.
