How To Make Your Tires Last Longer

Changing a Tire

Knowing how to make your tires last longer can help you save money, drive more safely, and experience your vehicle’s performance at its best! If you want to be certain that you’re getting your money’s worth on the roads near Providence, a little extra attention goes a long way.

Tips for a Longer Lasting Tires

Choosing long-life tires is an important first step, and you can pick up exactly what you need at our Warwick Mercedes-Benz tire center. However, even if you’ve purchased a set of the best tires available, you’ll want to take the following steps to maximize their lifespan:

  • Check Your Tire Pressure – Regular tire pressure checks are essential. You should be checking each of your tires at least once a month, but when the weather gets especially hot or cold, you’d be wise to do so even more often. Tires should stay at around 35 psi, but you might naturally lose up to 1 PSI per month.
  • Rotate Your Tires On Schedule – Your Mercedes-Benz Flexible Service System should tell you when to rotate tires. However, if you’re noticing a significant difference in tread depth, it may pay to schedule additional service once every 5,000 miles or so. (What’s more, it’s easy to save if you learn how to change a tire at home.)
  • Balance and Align Your Wheels – If your wheels or tires are misaligned or poorly balanced, the impacted components will wear down at a faster rate. Regular wheel balancing and alignment helps to reduce uneven wear, so you can replace all your tires at the same time.

A new set of tires can be expensive, but it’s much easier to save when you can replace all four tires at the same time! So, in addition to maximizing the lifespan of your tires, performing regular rotations and checks can actually help to minimize the time you spend at the shop. Are you ready to start taking care of your tires? Schedule service and have your tires inspected today.

You probably already know what your Tire Pressure Light looks like when it comes on, but you should learn how to identify your other dashboard warning lights, too!

How Long Do Tires Last?

Generally, tires last for three to four years as you drive around East Greenwich and Cranston. However, this number assumes that you drive around 12,000 to 15,000 miles per year. If you don’t drive as often, and you know exactly how to make your tires last longer, you could push your next replacement out to five, seven, or even ten years down the road. However, you should know that driving on worn down tires can negatively impact your brake performance and brake life.
