It is extremely crucial to maintain your tires. It is important to note that tire rotation is crucial for the life of your tires. It is likely that your car will wear each tire a little differently. Perhaps on one corner, the inside tread wears a little more quickly than the outside, or vice versa. By rotating the tires on a regular basis, the tires wear more easily and will have a longer life. This is a good thing to do not only to get the best use out of your tires, but also for safety. You really don’t want one tire wearing down completely, while the other ones are okay. So, while inspecting your tires, don’t just check the tread one tire, check for wear on all four tires.
Tire sizes can be a little daunting to try to understand. While it’s definitely important to know what size tires go on your car, it doesn’t hurt to know exactly what all those numbers and letters mean. I will use this example to run through each part of the tire size: P185/60R 14 82 H.
This can be a problem. I have never met anyone who enjoys sitting in the waiting room of a tire dealer drinking bad coffee and reading old magazines. Mounting fees also accumulate quickly making this a relatively expensive proposal. There is a better alternative. Simply get another set of wheels to mount your snow tires on. You can then simply unbolt your tires when the weather breaks and put your summer tires on. You can do this in under 30 minutes in your garage. No need for remounting, waiting for hours or drinking bad coffee. You can determine how much you want to spend using this method. Some suggest that you buy some old wheels from a salvage yard for your snow tires. This may be a good idea but by the time you pay for mounting it may not save you much money At least one online tire dealer will sell you a package of rims and snow tires with mounting and balancing done free. Given this you could easily get new rims and wheels that specifically fit your vehicle and all the mounting hardware at a price as good or better than getting a set of salvage wheels and new tires. The salvage wheels may or may not specifically fit your vehicle. Whatever you do, be sure the wheel fits your vehicle well and be sure that all the mounting hardware is made for your vehicle. If you choose, you can also buy more expensive wheels especially if you tend to keep cars for a long time or you tend to buy the same cars. Regardless, you should be able to sell these wheels with the car at a premium or sell them on eBay or through a classified ad when you are done with them. In any case you will not need to remount tires a couple times a year and the wheels will pay for themselves in a few seasons by saving the remounting charges.
