Taking Care of Your Truck’s Tires

In many ways, taking care of a diesel truck’s tires is similar to taking care of any vehicle’s tires. Your tires are paramount to the safety and efficiency of your truck. Here at Performance Trucks, we’re prepared to help you keep your tires in the best shape possible so your vehicle runs as well as it possibly can for as long as it possibly can. Here are our tips for taking care of your truck’s tires:

Tire Inflation
 

Check Inflation

Proper inflation is the most important part of prolonging your tires’ life. It also helps ensure that you get the best possible performance out of your tires. The level your tires should be inflated to depends on your make and model. We can help you determine how to properly inflate your tires at Performance Trucks.

Inspect Regularly
 

Inspect Regularly

Damage presents itself long before it causes trouble. Look for cracks in the sidewalls of your tires or uneven tread wear (a sign that your tire isn’t properly inflated). Be sure to replace any tires with damage as soon as possible so that you keep yourself and other drivers safe on the road and that your vehicle continues to run efficiently.

Wash Your Tires
 

Wash Your Tires

Does this surprise you? While washing your tires to make it look great is worthwhile, it serves a bigger purpose. Debris can remain on your tire and cause the rubber to deteriorate quicker than it would otherwise. Use warm, soapy water to clean your tires and avoid using chemicals on the tires.

Wheel Alignment

Proper wheel alignment ensures that your tires stay in great shape for a long time. It plays as critical a role as proper inflation.
