We all know that speeding can be dangerous and may even earn you a hefty ticket. What you may not know is that driving at excessive speeds can wear on your tires as well as your pocket book. Speeding generates more heat on your rubber tires as they accelerate against the pavement. This heat will inevitably cause more wear to your tire’s treads. You will also be more likely to hit things like rocks and potholes when you’re going too fast.
Check your tire pressure
A pressure gauge is an inexpensive tool that can help you extend the life of your tires. If one or more of your tires is deflated, you’re going to get uneven wear. There are a variety of pressure gauges on the market, but you can find one that will work fine for under $40. Check your tire pressure about once a month to make sure that they are all equally inflated.
Your front and back tires will wear differently. The sidewalls on the left land right tires can also where differently. Tire rotation can extend the life of all your tires. If you have a spare tire, you can include that in the rotation as well.
Properly aligned tires will undoubted last longer than tires that are out of alignment. If you find your car is pulling to one side, it’s probably indicative that your wheels are out of alignment. If this is the case, you are going to get uneven wear on your tire treads.
