Your Mitsubishi car will be equipped with a shiny, new set of tires when you drive it away for the first time from a dealership. However, they are bound to suffer from wear and tear over time. This is the reason you need to regularly maintain them. You don't need to reinvent your wheel to take care of your car's tires. You only require a few minutes a month as it's an easy and simple process. The difference between finding yourself on the side of the road with a flat or arriving at your destination on time and safely is appropriate tire maintenance. Following are some tips for maintaining tires of Mitsubishi vehicles.
Check the pressure
The first and arguably the most important step of tire maintenance is checking the tire pressure. You could become prone to a flat tire if your tire pressure is too high or low. Take guidance from your owner's manual to chalk out the ideal Mitsubishi tire pressure. Checking the tire pressure on monthly basis is a good idea as a general rule.
In order to ensure that the tires wear evenly, you must rotate them regularly. For rotation patterns and recommendations, consult the manufacturer, dealership or your owner's manual. You should rotate the tires every five thousand miles if recommendations for rotation are not specified.
Make sure your tires are properly aligned and Balanced
Your tires will wear rapidly if they are not properly aligned. Align and balance them based on specifications for optimal tire care in your owner's manual. The major signs of misalignment are your vehicle pulling in one direction, shaking and vibrating.
When one area of your tire is heavier than the rest, it means your wheel is out of balance. This may cause the front-end parts of your tread to wear prematurely as imbalanced tires cause vibration, an increased amount of stress and treadwear. Whenever you purchase new tires or whenever there is a shift in tire balance, you should have your wheels balanced.
You should thoroughly check your car for worn or broken mechanical parts as well as for wheel balance and alignment as soon as you see signs of irregular treadwear or vibration. Start with a rear one when changing tires of your car. If you want better control when you turn into a tight corner or apply brake suddenly, make sure your rear wheels are the least worn.
Monitor your tread
Your tire treads will naturally wear down as you drive down the road. This is due to the friction that the pavement produces. You will be compromising the safety and efficiency of your vehicle if the tire treads worn down too much.
Apart from all these things, you can drive at moderate speed to increase the longevity of your tires. You can visit Fuccillo Mitsubishi in Adams if you want to know more about tire maintenance of your Mitsubishi vehicle.
