3 Tips for Reducing Everyday Tire Wear

Updated on December 25, 2017

Taking care of one’s tires not only improves the overall handling and control of the car, but also the amount of maintenance and repairs that are needed. Poor road conditions, temporal fluctuations, and many other factors can easily cause tires to wear down quickly. Car owners looking to prolong the lifespan of their tires should consider implementing the following 3 tips and tricks.

Adjust Driving Habits

Car tires wear down quickly if car drivers exhibit poor driving habits. The quickest way to reduce every day tire wear is to adjust driving habits. This involves driving slower, so sudden brakes and quick accelerations are not needed. Car drivers should leave ample room in front of their car for other drivers, so that it’s easy to avoid having to brake suddenly.

Even though some cars are designed to handle quick accelerations and braking, adjusting one’s driving habits never hurt. It’ll also enhance overall driving safety. Drivers are less likely to get ticketed for violations, and their driving habits will also be easier on their engines.

Check Tire Pressure Regularly

Another way to reduce every day tire wear is to check tire pressure regularly. Temporal fluctuations and road conditions can cause tires to deflate with time. When the weather gets hotter, the air inside the tire also tends to expand. This causes tires to inflate. Tires that have too little or too much air in them are not performing at their optimal condition. They take on more wear, as they need more energy to propel the vehicle forwards.

The easiest way to reduce everyday tire wear is to check the tire pressure regularly. Car owners can do so at a gas station or with a simple tool at home. Adjust the tire pressure, so that it is within the regular level for optimal driving results.

Get Tires Rotated During Each Service

With each service, car owners can specify whether or not they would like to get their tires rotated. This simply means that the tires in the front get moved to the back, while the tires in the back get moved to the front. While this operation seems simple enough, it evens out the amount of wear that is seen on all tires. This helps improve the lifespan of all tires, and will also indirectly improve the car’s handling as well.

Reducing everyday tire wear is beneficial not only for the tires, but for the cars as well. Any car can benefit from the tips mentioned above. By reducing everyday wear, the tires will last longer and need to be replaced less often.
