How to Make Your Tires Last Longer

If you want your car to have a long life, tires are one component that you should prioritize. Not only do tires contribute to your performance and safety, but everything from fuel economy to comfort can be thrown off by a poor or aging set. Luckily, learning how to make your tires last longer is easy with the proper maintenance. Let’s go through the top tips and tricks for the Irvine area.

Driving Habits

Driving habits are a big factor in how fast your tires wear down. If you are more aggressive with braking and accelerating when you drive, the extra friction will wear down the tire treads faster. If you accelerate more gradually and let coasting do some of the work when slowing down, you can save your tires and extend their life expectancy.

DIY Tire Maintenance

Tires aren’t cheap, so it’s worth the time and effort to stay up with your maintenance schedule. Tire maintenance is simple and even if you have no car experience, there are many tasks you can complete in your own garage in Costa Mesa.

  • Tire Pressure: Tires lose air pressure slowly, so you might not notice when your air is starting to get low – especially from season to season. Check your tire pressure monthly with an inexpensive gauge and try to check more frequently during severe weather changes.
  • Tire Tread Depth: Another easy DIY task, checking tire tread depth is easy for even the most inexperienced driver. Your tire tread wears down over time and once your tread depth dips under 2/32 of an inch, you’ll need a new set. So keep an eye on your tread depth when you check your tire pressure!

Professional Tire Care

While some tasks are simple enough, other maintenance tasks require a significant investment of equipment and resources. While auto fanatics might be up for the task, most drivers are happy to make the drive from Huntington Beach to let a professional at our Jaguar service center handle the job:

  • Tire Alignment: Remember the last time you hit a curb? Misaligned tires wear out unevenly and cause poor handling, so get your alignment checked for the best performance possible.
  • Tire Rotations: Every 5,000 miles or so, we recommend getting a tire rotation to help distribute the wear and tear of daily driving more evenly. Check your owner’s manual for specific guidelines based on your make, model, and drivetrain configuration.
  • Tire Balance: A professional can balance your tires to promote the best handling and safest driving possible, which can prolong the long life of your tires as well.
