New Tires & Tire Service Near Smithville, MO
Vehicle Tire Service at Victory Chevrolet of Smithville
Your tires are one of the most used and most important components of your Chevy vehicle. They keep you and your loved ones safe when you are out on the road. Tires keep us moving, provide a smooth ride, and help extend the life of your shocks, struts, springs, and any other parts. Because they are so important, like any other part of your car, truck, or SUV, they need to be maintained. Victory Chevrolet of Smithville’s certified team of service professionals is standing by to service your tires and extend their life.
When it comes to tire maintenance, there are several things to consider that help maintain and even extend the life of your tires. One thing that is crucial to extending the life of your tires is your wheel alignment. Wheel alignment keeps your ride smooth, and it helps keep the wear patterns of your tires even.
Before a vehicle leaves the production facility, the tires are aligned correctly, but with regular use the suspension can become misaligned from bumps in the road, repeated driving on uneven surfaces, hitting a curb too hard, or accidents with other vehicles, just to name a few possibilities.
Tire balance is also important because if they are out of balance, it also affects the smoothness of your ride and can shorten tire life. Your tires may need to be balanced if the car vibrates when driving on smooth roads.
Tire pressure is another culprit that causes your tire tread to wear unevenly. Most vehicles these days have a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), which has sensors that warn you if tire pressure is too low on any of the tires. Many more recent models take it a step further and not only warn you of low tire pressure (a drop in tire pressure of 25% or more) but also tell you which tire or tires are compromised. You will need to have your tires checked for proper inflation, but it is also important to know if your TPMS is working properly and our team at Victory Chevrolet of Smithville knows how to check the TPMS and your tires to ensure that they are working correctly.
Rotating your tires is another way to make sure the tires are wearing properly, especially if your vehicle is front-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive. Because those tires are doing the hard work, they will wear down faster. When your tires are rotated, they are moved to a new position each time, meaning each tire wears down the same.
