Autumn’s Almost Here – Time for Tire Care | Car Care, Tire Service

Keeping up with regular car care and tire service will help save money.

The official start to autumn is almost here. It’s one of those dates that may not make any immediate difference to the weather or other day-to-day living unless it's a signal to go for a walk in the zoo when it gets cooler. But it is a good time to use as a reminder to do things – like routine car care. That would include an oil change and a check of fluid levels and your tires. You might not think it’s important to get that routine car care done. But it does make a difference – heading off bigger problems down the road and prolonging your engine life.

As for your wheels, tire manufacturer Michelin points out that a regular tire checkup helps save money in at least two ways:

“It can extend the life of your tires so you don’t have to buy as often: Simple things like checking your tires’ pressure to make sure that they are properly inflated can make a real difference in how long your tires last. Under or over-inflated tires don’t wear evenly and won’t last as long. For example, a tire that is consistently 20% under- inflated can last 20% less. That means a tire that should normally last 60,000 miles would be worn out by 48,000 miles. Also, since the front and rear axles and right and left sides of your car wear down your tires differently, rotating your tires regularly between the different positions will ensure they wear evenly and last longer.

“It can save you money on fuel: Under-inflated tires are one of the biggest causes of using excess fuel. Under-inflated tires have higher rolling resistance, which means it takes more effort from the engine to move your vehicle.”

The place to get that tire service is Don's Tire and Service. Don's carries all brands, sizes and styles of tire to fit any car or driving need. Don's has been the trusted car care specialists in Merced for more than 55 years.
