Sometimes people take their car’s tires for granted. But they’re a crucial part of your car’s function that need to be tended to regularly. For Acura drivers, changing, rotating and inflating your tires is important if you want to keep your car running smoothly and safely. Luckily it’s pretty clear when you have a problem with your tires — you’ll usually feel it. Regardless, you’ll want to keep up with tire maintenance and have a professional check your Acura’s tire health periodically.
- Changing your tires
Anyone who’s ever had a flat tire knows how much of a pain it can be. Your car drives worse and can even begin to make unpleasant sounds. While changing the tires on your Acura yourself is feasible for most, it’s still good to leave it to a professional so you can be sure the task is being done correctly. There are things you can do to reduce the likelihood of a flat on your Acura. This includes regular tire rotation, proper inflation of your tires, and keeping a close eye on whether or not the tread on your tire is wearing down.
- Rotating your tires
The next time you go to get your oil changed — which should be every 3,000 to 6,000 miles — also ask your car care professional at LexService to rotate your tires. It’s a task that should be done regularly to ensure sure your car maintains a strong fuel economy. It makes sure the tire wear is evenly distributed among the different tires on your car, which is crucial to car health. Forgetting to regularly rotate your tires could lead to some unpleasant alignment issues and increase the likelihood of a flat.
- Inflating your tires
Inflating your tires is easy and satisfying…so what are you waiting for? Properly inflated tires can increase fuel efficiency and make sure your driving experience remains smooth and safe. Acura models have a state of the art tire pressure monitoring system, which means you’ll know when it’s time to give them a boost. Be aware that tire pressure can vary based on weather conditions, so make sure to keep an eye on the tire pressure monitor and be diligent about inflation.
