For folks in Saskatchewan, we know all too well the importance of having a reliable set of tires. From navigating snowy winters to exploring tricky terrain, your tires can be the hardest working component of your vehicle.
Whether you need routine tire maintenance or trustworthy advice on what kind of tires your car needs, the tire centre at North Battleford Hyundai is at your service! Our service technicians are factory-trained and certified professionals, so we know the perfect sizes and brands for each of our models.
We advise scheduling regular tire inspections to ensure your tires remain in good condition. During these assessments, we can check tire pressure, wheel alignment, tread depth, and other crucial aspects. This practice promotes even tire wear and allows our technicians to consistently evaluate your tire condition and tread.
One of the easiest and most essential things you can do to protect your tire health is a regular, routine tire rotation. Tire rotations performed at regular intervals help improve performance, prolong tire life, and achieve uniform wear and tear for all tires. Tire rotations should be performed every 12,000 km and can easily be done when you're getting your oil changed.
When a vehicle's wheel alignment is off, it can result in uneven tire wear. Furthermore, an imbalanced tire can impact not only your tire's lifespan but also critical components like your suspension, shocks, and bearings. If you observe your vehicle veering to one side or experiencing vibrations while driving on a smooth road, we advise having an alignment check.
A tire that is underinflated or overinflated will also wear unevenly. Every tire comes with a manufacturer's recommendation for proper inflation, and keeping this recommended tire pressure is essential to maintenance. Tire pressure can also affect ride comfort, fuel consumption and efficiency, stopping distance, cornering, and more. Weather conditions, including brisk Saskatechwen winters, can also play a major role in your tire pressure. So, we recommend you check your tire pressure often during colder months.
