Next, make sure you’re keeping an eye on your tire tread. This will help you decide when your tires are too worn and have lost their grip. Be sure to never let your tire’s tread depth go lower than 2/32 of an inch or you might be facing some scary driving scenarios.
A common sense piece of tire upkeep is to make sure that your tires are inflated to the correct tire pressure. When they are at the correct pressure they are able to grip the road better. Pro tip – you’ll also save yourself on gas mileage!
Lastly, but certainly not least – get your wheels aligned once or twice a year! Making sure your wheels aligned will help your fuel economy and will help your tire wear evenly similar to having them rotated.
Alright, so that’s how you keep your tires in good condition. This way you’ll be able to use tires for longer, saving money on tires and in most cases, gas mileage too.

First, don’t be afraid to get the same or similar tires to the ones that came on your car. Your car was built to have those tires, so it can only be a positive match!
Second, maybe you only need a front one replaced because of damage or something else. Don’t replace only one tire! If you need to replace one of your front tires you’ll need to replace both. If you only replace one the wear will be different and your wheels will be uneven which is not good for your car!
