Tire & Wheel Program: Get The Most Out Of Your Tires

January 20th, 2020 by

Here at of Competition INFINITI of Smithtown, we compiled a small list of tips to help maintain your vehicle’s performance. We hope to give you the confidence you need when driving, especially during the harsh snowy winters here on Long Island.

How to Get The Most Out of Your Tires

Tip #1

Rotate your tires every 5,000-7,000 miles. This will help your tires wear evenly.

Tip #2

Keep your vehicle’s tire pressure at the recommended level. Low tire pressure can cause your tires to wear and lose grip on wet, rainy surfaces. Take a look at your owner’s manual for the recommended PSI for your tires.

Tip #3

Check your vehicle’s tire pressure on a regular basis. Checking at least once a month will help maintain your vehicles performance. We also suggest checking your tires pressure before a long road trip.

Tip #4

It is extremely important to check your tires tread depth regularly. A simple way to check tread depth is by inserting a quarter upside down into the tire groove. If you can see above Washington’s head, you need to replace your tires.

If you are unsure about the condition of your tires, we recommend seeing a professional. With a highly trained team and a Tire Center located in our dealership, we will help you find the tires that best suit your vehicle and your needs.
