Tires will naturally undergo wear and tear due to constant usage. Tires help maintain your car's efficiency, and need to be in good condition for an optimal driving experience. Some various actions or situations will lead to the premature deterioration of tires. The following is what can wear down tires prematurely:
Improper Air Pressure
Improper inflation of car tires is one of the primary factors that can lead to premature tire wear and tear. The sign of improperly inflated tires will be visible on the outside edge of the treads. When the tire pressure is too high, the middle of the treads will be pronounced. You have to worry more about low tire pressure because tires lose air pressure as you drive. On the other hand, it is crucial to know the optimal tire pressure for your tires to properly inflate them.
Not Getting Tire Rotations
Tires on the same vehicle will undergo varying amounts of deterioration. The front right tire, in particular, experiences the most damage because of the constant stress of the driver's weight. Front tires on front-wheel vehicles will also experience more damage.
Therefore, poor tire rotation can lead to premature deterioration of tires. You hence need to rotate your tires often, with every six months being the recommended frequency.
Improper Wheel Alignment
Wheel alignment refers to adjusting car wheels to ensure they are parallel and perpendicular to the ground. When your tires are improperly aligned, it will lead to premature wear and tear of some tires or parts of them. For example, one tire could experience more damage on the outer parts than the inner part. You should ensure your car wheels are properly aligned whenever you take it for a check.
Damaged suspension parts can lead to swift and uneven deterioration of tires. Shock absorbers are an example of a suspension part that affects the pressure tires handle. Continuous bouncing on the road will cause tires to wear out prematurely.
