Key Points for Proper Tire Maintenance
Check tire pressure regularly (You will find the inflation pressures for the Original
Equipment Tire size on the vehicle, usually on the door placard, a sticker often
found on the driver's door frame, or back edge of the door. This will show the
tire size that came originally on the vehicle and the air pressure to carry the
load required of this vehicle.)
Rotate the tires every 5,000 miles (Tip: Make your first rotation before you
reach the 5,000 mile mark. When the tread is at full depth the tire is most
susceptible to irregular wear. Making the first rotation early will help negate
any irregular wear that is in the process of developing.)
Check the tread wear often.
Have the wheels alignment every two years or if you suspect the suspension
has been damaged, also when a new set of tires is installed.
Have the wheel balanced when the tires are new and again if you notice a
"shimmy" in the steering wheel.
