Proper Tire Tread and Pressure

One of the scariest scenarios when driving your car is hydroplaning. You temporarily lose control of the vehicle because the tires have lost their ability to grip the road’s wet surface. Vehicle speed and tire maintenance are two crucial elements in avoiding that unfortunate circumstance.

Tires should be rotated about every seven thousand miles to achieve the most even tread wear. They adjust to their placement, and by rotating, you even out all your tires. The front tires generally have more wear than the rear. When you rotate, each side should be switched as well as the front to back placement.

Tire pressure also plays a critical role in your ability to safely manage your vehicle. The next time you’re in Cedar Springs, MI, come by the service center at Vanderhyde Brothers Ford Inc. We’re here to answer any questions you have about tire performance and safety.
