From Pressure Maintenance to Tire Mounting: How to Care for Your Tires, Springfield, Ohio

There are many vital parts that play an essential role in helping your car function properly, but few are more important for your safety and vehicle handling than your tires. As the team at Mt. Healthy Auto Repair in Mt. Healthy, OH, explains, proper tire mounting, alignment, and pressure can go a long way in keeping your tires in good shape.

Good care for your vehicle’s tires starts the moment you purchase a new set. Correct tire mounting and balancing are essential to ensuring that your tires will work effectively. Even though adding new tires to your car’s wheels may seem like a fairly straightforward process, balancing the tires after they have been mounted requires careful work from an automotive professional. During the balancing process, mechanics will inspect the wheels using several diagnostic tests. By adding small weights to the rim of the wheel, any weight imbalances will be taken care of to prevent a bumpy, unsafe ride.

tire mountingAfter your tires have been installed, it is still important that you follow a few key practices to keep them functioning properly. First is to maintain adequate tire pressure. By keeping your tires inflated according to the manufacturer’s standards, you can ensure that they will wear properly and provide good handling. Most gas stations allow you to check your tire pressure and add more air to your tires, so it’s easy to check your pressure regularly.

If you start to notice unusual issues with your suspension—such as a vibrating steering wheel, or a sharp pull to the side while driving—you may need to get your tires aligned. A tire alignment will improve your vehicle’s handling and prevent uneven wear, allowing you to get more use out of your tires.

For tire mounting and other key vehicle maintenance and repair tasks, you can rely on the team at Mt. Healthy Auto Repair. To learn more about the services offered by this auto shop, visit them online, or call (513) 522-9555.
