The top tip to keep your tires from quickly wearing out: Make sure they're properly inflated at all times.
When you started your car this morning, you noticed that the tire light was on. That's the one that tells you that at least one of your tires needs air. But you're not sure whether to pay attention to it or not. You got out of your car and looked - all four tires seem okay. But, still, there's this light.
The wisest move is to take your car to the New Orleans auto care experts at Twin Tire Auto Care. Tires can lose a lot of air before they start looking as if they're going flat. And driving on an under-inflated tire isn't good for the tire or for your car. It's kind of like running in the Creole Tomato Festival race with a comfortable shoe that fits on one foot and an old, ill-fitting shoe on the other.
Continental, the tire manufacturer, agrees about the importance of maintaining the proper tire inflation: "Tires are designed and built to provide many miles of excellent service but must be properly maintained. The key element of proper tire maintenance is maintaining the recommended tire inflation pressure. ... Continental Tire recommends that the consumer check his/her tire inflation pressure at regular intervals of at least once per month and before every long trip or, twice per month depending on local regulations, customs, or conditions."
Once you find your tire needs inflation, you have another question to answer - air or nitrogen? Many drivers opt to use nitrogen in their tires because the gas takes longer to seep out of tires so they remain at proper inflation for a longer time.
But whether you choose air or nitrogen, the best place to get help for your tires is at Twin Tire.
