THE DANGERS OF UNEVEN WEAR ON TIRES
Wheels are the part of your vehicle that is always in contact with the road. As a result, it’s one of the parts of a vehicle that are the most prone to wear and tear.
Driving on worn-out tires is dangerous. Shallow treads on tires lengthen the stopping distance when you brake on wet roads. Braking should result in an abrupt stop, but bald tires make going to a halt take longer, increasing the risk of bumping into an object, like the vehicle in front of you.
With worn-out tires, your vehicle is also at risk of hydroplaning—skidding and sliding on wet roads. Traction is reduced on ice and snow. Overused tires are also prone to punctures, which in turn can lead to crashes.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), vehicles with worn-out tires are three times more likely to be involved in an accident.
Replacing old, damaged tires and tires with low tire tread helps keep you and your vehicle safe on the road. However, there’s another way to extend the lifespan of your tires.
TIRE ROTATION, ALIGNMENT, AND BALANCING AT AUTO WORKS OF BRANDON
Tire rotation, alignment, and balancing are three maintenance must-dos that provide significant benefits to your vehicle in terms of safety, performance, and efficiency. Our highly trained, ASE-certified technicians perform these services in our spacious and modern Brandon, FL facility.
Tire rotation means having a tire rotation specialist periodically reposition your tires according to the rotation patterns specified in your vehicle’s user manual. Tire rotation services help ensure that all tires wear at the same rate. Tires that are rotated regularly last longer, so you won’t have to replace them as frequently.
Tire alignment involves adjusting the vehicle’s suspension, the system that connects it to the wheels. Like tire rotation, it helps equalize the wear rates of all the tires on your vehicle. It also makes sure that your vehicle drives straight and true, without listing to one side.
Tire balancing is a service that adjusts the weight distribution around your vehicle. When your wheel unit weighs equally, your vehicle rides more smoothly and safely. Your suspension system will be protected from bumps in the road, and you’ll also benefit from improved fuel economy and longer-lasting tires.
If your wheelset differs in weight in one area compared to the other, the result is increased vibration under the floorboard, in the steering wheel, or the seats, especially at high speeds. You will also notice:
- Uneven or unusual tread wear
- Poor gas mileage
- Worn suspension components
Another telltale sign is it’s hard to drive straight without straining your arms on the steering wheel.
All three services offer these benefits:
- Improved vehicle handling
- Even wearing of tire treads
- A quieter ride
- Value for money
