Whether you’re driving a brand new 2017 Chevy Equinox or one of our capable pre-owned vehicles, the importance of sticking to a strict maintenance schedule remains the same. Over time, many of the parts in your car need to be checked by a professional or even replaced, which is why we also offer a fully equipped service center here at Jennings Chevrolet. One part of your car that you really need to keep an eye on, especially in the winter months, is your tires. Recognizing issues with your tires and knowing when you need to come in for maintenance can help keep you safe on the road.
One of the most important things to track is tire pressure, and it’s not something you can just do by looking at them. A label on the driver’s door should let you know what the ideal pressure is, and you’ll want to make sure that you don’t underinflate or overinflate your tires. Underinflated tires could wear out faster and reduce your fuel economy, while overinflated tires could take more damage from rough road conditions. Remember to check the pressure on your spare tire as well!
To lengthen the life of your tires, you can come to us for a tire rotation. On many types of vehicles, the front and rear tires can wear down at different rates. Rotating them can keep all four of your tires in top shape. You also want to keep your wheels properly aligned. A bad alignment could lead to uneven and quicker wear and tear for your tires. Luckily, we can help you out with all of your Chevy parts and maintenance needs right here at our Glenview Chevy dealership.
You rely on your tires to get you through tough weather conditions, and you can rely on us to keep your tires in top form. So visit us or contact us with any of your tire-related questions. We can’t wait to help you!
