Tire Care for Your Honda
Eventually the tires on your Honda vehicle will wear out, but there are a few things you can do to keep your wheels rolling for much longer. The performance of your drive is associated with the type of condition your tires are in, which means if they are in good shape you will experience a smooth ride.
Understanding proper care for your tires and getting these services done are something that shouldn’t be avoided. The service team at Honda Cars of Bellevue will help you stay up-to-date with a few tips. Read on to get started!
Tires don’t wear out at the same time, which is why it is important to know where they stand. It may be time for a new set of tires or a tire rotation may be needed to extend the life a little longer before switching over to a new set of tires. Determine the tread depth and go from there.
Checking the Tread Depth: Testing the tread can be done at home by using a penny. Place the penny upside down in between the ridges of the tire. We recommend getting new tires when Lincoln’s head is visible. Consider testing in several areas of the tire before making the final decision.
Getting a tire rotation involves removing tires from the current position and moving them to a new one. Rotating tires around 5,000 miles will help tires wear out evenly. Our tire center recommends getting this service done when your Honda is due for an oil change.
Tire Air Pressure
Checking the air pressure on a regular basis will help keep tires from getting a flat and will increase the lifespan. Low air pressure may impact the gas mileage of your vehicle. At Honda Cars of Bellevue, we will check the air pressure at the time of your tire rotation and will let you know where your air pressure needs to be. Checking the air pressure can also be done at home with a tire pressure gauge as well.
