How much do you think about your car’s tires? You probably don’t think about them enough. However, when you take your car in for a check-up and see the cost of a new set of tires, you’ll realize that you’ll need to start paying more attention to those four little patches of rubber on each corner of your car. 


Tire maintenance costs can go as low as $45 for a rotation and up to $600 for new tires. Being one of the most important elements of your vehicle, you must take great care of them. In this blog post, we’ll look at some tips for minimizing your tire maintenance costs


Keep Tires Properly Inflated

The recommended tire pressure for your car is usually found on a sticker inside the driver’s door. If you can’t find it there, consult your owner’s manual. Once you know the proper pressure, use a reliable gauge to check it at least once a month before going on long trips.


Under-inflated tires make your car work harder, but they also wear out faster and can be dangerous. Over-inflated tires don’t grip the road as well as they should, making it more difficult to control your vehicle, especially in wet or icy conditions.


Rotate Your Tires Regularly

Most mechanics will recommend that you rotate your tires every 5,000 to 8,000 miles. This helps ensure even wear and extends the life of your tires.


If your car has front-wheel drive, the front tires will wear out faster than the back ones. The reverse is true for rear-wheel-drive cars.


Invest On The Right Tires

There are different types of tires for different purposes. All-season tires are designed to provide good traction and handling in various conditions, including light snow.


If you live in an area with harsh winters, you may want to invest in winter tires. These tires have a softer rubber compound that stays pliable in cold weather and special tread patterns that provide better traction in snow and ice.


You may also want to consider tires specifically designed for high-performance vehicles. These tires can improve your car’s acceleration, braking, and handling. However, they will also likely have a shorter lifespan than all-season tires.


Use Balancing Beads

Balancing beads are small ceramic, meta, or tempered glass beads that are added to the tire and help to keep it balanced. Unbalanced tires can cause vibration and premature wear.


ABC Balancing Beads is the best choice for balancing bead services. We adjust to compensate for either a sudden change or progressive change in the state of tire balance by migrating to the balance position.


This helps to improve fuel economy, extends tire life, and provides a smoother ride.


Drive Smartly

The way you drive can also affect the wear and tear on your tires. Sudden starts and stops, as well as speeding over speed bumps, can all damage your tires. You should also avoid driving on potholes or other uneven surfaces when possible. If you can’t avoid them, slow down and go over them carefully.
