How Often Should I Check The Tires On My Chevy Car or Truck?
You will want to regularly examine your vehicle's tire pressure because all tires will lose pressure progressively, during both warm and cold temperature months. The weather isn't the only factor that results in a decrease in pressure either. Altitude shifts, flexing and tire wall impacts will slowly cause tire air pressure to decline. It is recommended that you inspect your car's tire pressure at least once a month.
What Are Optimal Tire Pressure And Tread Depth Levels On A Chevrolet?
Optimal tire pressure levels fluctuate by tire type and size. You can find the ideal air pressure level outlined inside your vehicle owner's manual or on the tire placard, which is usually placed on your vehicle's door edge, glove box or fuel door. Most tires may also have an optimal PSI scale written on the tire sidewall. Concerning tread depth, your tire is believed to be at the conclusion of its life whenever the tread is worn down to around 2/32 inches.
Rotating your tires regularly can prolong the life of your tires and cost you less for replacement tires over the life of your car. Typically your tires will wear differently over time and rotating them will balance the tread wear on all your tires. It's important to rotate the tires on your Chevrolet at regular intervals so you don't create wear patterns that can actually reduce the life of your tires. A good rule of thumb is to rotate your tires every time you change the oil in your Chevrolet.
Tire rotation patterns will differ depending on your tires. There are many things to consider when choosing the optimal tire rotation pattern such as tire sizes, directional tires, asymmetrical tire treads and more.
