Checking the Spare Tire

Spare TireMany families are preparing for spring trips around this time. Some college students are even preparing for Spring Break excursions. This means more people will be preparing for upcoming road trips with last-minute car washes, fluid checks and other quick tests to ensure automobiles are in excellent condition.

When checking the tires, it’s a must that all tires are checked. It’s easy to remember the four tires that your automobile rides on, but our Grapevine TX mechanics urge you to check the spare tire thoroughly before getting on the road. You never know when one of your road tires will blow, and it’s always a smart idea to have your backup tire ready to go at any given time.

It’s quite common for most people to forget about the spare, but our Grapevine tire experts suggest you treat it as if it were a part of your tire rotation schedule. In fact, it’s not a bad idea to work your spare into working rotation just to keep it in drivable shape.

In addition to checking your spare, our mechanics suggest you have proper tire rotation, tire balance and wheel alignment services done during scheduled periods according to your owner’s manual. Our Grapevine TX auto care company can assist you with any questions you have about your tires. Give us a call today, or contact us online for details.
