Nissan Tire Maintenance Tips Harlingen Texas
When you purchase a brand new Nissan from Charlie Clark Nissan-Harlingen, the best parts besides the new car smell are the new tires! Those new tires offer cushioning when driving over rough patches of road, along with maintaining your Nissan’s high performance and stellar fuel economy. Unfortunately, your tires will naturally wear out over time. Here are some Nissan tire maintenance tips from Charlie Clark Nissan in Harlingen, Texas to make those tires last as long as possible!
Regularly Check Your Tire Pressure
Although most Nissan models come complete with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System, we still recommend pulling out your tire gauge and checking the pressure whenever you check your oil. If you need to add air, many gas stations have a pump that you can use for free or a very low price.
Rotate Your Tires
Believe it or not, your tires wear down at different rates! To get the most use of your tires, we recommend rotating your tires every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. Tire rotation is when your tires are switched to different wheels so they can experience even wear.
Get Your Tires Balanced
As tires wear down, they lose their initial weight. In order to combat this issue and to keep each tire’s weight the same (or balanced), weighted clips are added. It is a good idea to get your tires weighed and balanced once every 2 years or every 5,000 to 7,500 miles.
Use Abe Lincoln’s Head to Check the Tread!
Typically, a set of tires will last 3 to 4 years, though it depends how often you drive and what kind of terrain you regularly encounter. Once you reach this time frame, you should start checking your tires’ tread depth with the help of a penny. Stick President Lincoln’s head down into the treads and if he is completely visible, it is time for a new set of tires!
