A new set of tires is an investment that can be quite expensive. In order to make the most of this investment and to stay safe, it is important to maintain your tires. The two major things that drivers in Caldwell, ID should keep an eye on are the pressure and the tread.

Rotating your tires regularly is a good way to extend their life. Doing so will make sure that the tread wears more evenly. Along those same lines, check your tread at regular intervals. The team at Team Mazda recommends the quarter test, which involves placing a quarter into the tread. If you can see any space above Washington's head, then you need new tires.

The pressure of your tires is also important. Prior to hitting the road for a long trip, plus at least once a month, check the pressure. The best time to do this is before driving for the first time for the day. Check your vehicle's recommendation for the correct pressure and stick to that.
