Keep a Firm Grip on the Road with Regular Tire Inspections

Keeping your vehicle in peak performance means paying attention to a wide range of factors, and few are more important that your tires. As the only part of your vehicle that actually touches the road, it is essential that you regularly inspect your tire pressure and tire tread to ensure you keep a firm grip on the pavement.

Tires that are properly inflated and have plenty of tread obviously provide safety benefits and can also improve fuel efficiency. Alternatively, underinflated or overinflated tires can create hazardous driving conditions and decrease a vehicle’s performance. If your tires are worn or don’t have enough tread, you’ll also have far less traction on the road—especially in snowy, wet or icy conditions.

These reasons mean it is vital you regularly check to make sure your tires are properly inflated and have enough tread left. This means checking your tires before driving and following your manufacturer’s pressure recommendation when inflating. You also need to periodically check the tread, which can be accomplished by sticking a penny into the tread groove with Lincoln’s face upside down. If you’re able to see all or most of Lincoln’s head, it means the tread is low and it’s time to replace your tires.

If you’re in need of new tires or have any questions about tread or tire pressure, feel free to contact our service center at Freeway Ford Truck Sales in Lyons, IL.
