EXTENDING THE LIFE OF YOUR TIRES

Tire Pressure

Studies have shown that up to 70% of vehicles on the road have at least one under-inflated tire. Checking and maintaining tire pressure regularly will help extend tire life and reduce fuel consumption. Every time you check your Honda’s tire pressures, you should also examine the tires for damage, foreign objects, and wear.

Wheel Alignment
Misaligned wheels can cause uneven and rapid tire wear. It is normal for wheel alignment to change through the life of the vehicle as wear accumulates and especially if the vehicle is driven on rough roads. If abnormal tire wear or damage is discovered when checking tire pressures or during vehicle maintenance, or your Honda has developed symptoms such as pulling to one side or that the steering wheel is not centred when driving straight, the wheel alignment should be checked and corrected if needed.

Wheel Balancing
Proper wheel balance helps prevent unnecessary wear to the tires, steering, and suspension components and also provides for a more enjoyable driving experience. Wheel balance normally changes as tires wear and should be checked periodically when you change or rotate tires, and especially if you have noticed speed-related vibration while driving.

Wheel balancing should always be done when replacing tires and when a tire has been removed from a wheel for any reason.
