Living in the greater San Diego, CA, area has many benefits. From great weather to comfortable driving conditions, it can be easy to forget the importance of regular vehicle maintenance. Properly caring for your vehicle is the key to preventing damage and accidents, while helping you keep your vehicle running for longer. Even with beautiful weather and mild winters, it’s essential to keep up on vehicle maintenance

Whether you live on the coast or in the midwest, specific areas and components or your vehicle will wear down and need replacement over time. It’s just part of car ownership. One area that requires special attention is your tires.

Your tires are one of the hardest working components on your vehicle, and their health affects plenty of other areas of your car. When it comes to your vehicle’s tires, you must ensure they’re in good health.

Keeping an eye on your tires is simple and doesn’t take much time. One of the first things you should do is get a tire pressure gauge. Your tire pressure plays an enormous role in everything from your vehicle’s performance to your safety. Tire pressure fluctuates with the temperature, so we recommend regularly inspecting your tire pressure and ensuring you have the proper amount of air in your tires according to your owner’s manual.

The next area to keep an eye on with your tires is your tire’s tread depth. Your tire treads are the grooves you see in your tire and help you grip the road. If your treads are too worn, not only do your engine and brakes work harder, you increase the risk of an accident.
