Tire Maintenance and Care
Rotate your tires every 6,000 miles.
Check your tire pressures approximately once a week. Low tire pressures can affect fuel economy, handling and comfort. To accurately measure your tire pressure, check tires when they are cold. Wait at least three hours after driving.
Always make sure that your wheels are properly aligned. Badly aligned wheels will again lead to dragging of the car on the road causing premature wear.
Check your spare tire each month and keep it properly inflated so it¹s ready to go when you need it most.
Use the penny trick to determine if the tread depth is too low. Take a penny and put Abraham Lincoln's head into one of the grooves of the tread. If part of his head is covered by the tread, you're ok. If you can see all of his head, it's time to replace the tire. When the tread is worn down to 1/16 of an inch, tires must be replaced.
Gas Mileage Tips
Check and/or change your air filter every 6 months to improve fuel economy and keep your engine running smoothly.
Go for the shade. The hot summer sun that makes the inside of your car feel like a sauna also evaporates fuel from your gas tank.
Use the right oil. You can improve your car's gas mileage by 1 percent to 2 percent by using the manufacturer's recommended grade of motor oil.
And most important of all……
Always check for potential problems before they happen.
