An important part of automobile ownership is knowing there are certain parts of every car that need periodic maintenance. Unfortunately, this fact seems to slip by a lot of people when it comes to tires. Frankly, most tires get little attention until they are really low on air, fail to pass inspection, or go flat entirely. This is a shame because with some TLC, the tires on your car or truck can last thousands of miles longer than the norm. Let's take a look at the maintenance issues that you should keep in mind to make your car's tires deliver thousands of miles of use, and do so safely.

Under-inflation is the number one issue

You likely know that tires lose air over time but did you know that up to 25% of the tires on the road today are substantially underinflated? Tires that are not fully inflated not only deliver less fuel mileage but will wear prematurely. 

In order to keep your car's tires inflated properly, it is recommended that they should be checked once a month. You probably know that adding air to tires is easy done at most gas stations and convenience stores but if you are uncomfortable with this procedure, feel free to schedule a service appointment with us at Pearson Mazda.

How often should I have my tires rotated?

As you drive, your tires wear out and they rarely do so evenly. By having your tires moved, or "rotated", from one axle to another, you can smooth out the wear so that, as a set, they last longer. The folks at Pearson Mazda generally recommend that you have the tires on your Mazda rotated every 7500 miles, or 7.5 months, whichever comes first.

What about full wheel alignments on my Mazda?

You should align the wheels on your vehicle periodically. This is a procedure that checks and adjusts the geometry of your car's suspension components so that they meet factory specifications. The reason that this becomes necessary is that normal driving subjects your vehicle to lots of stresses and strains (think potholes) and this can cause the relative alignment of your suspension to shift out of spec. The solution is to visit a tire service specialist, such as Pearson Mazda and have one of their alignment specialists take a look.
