We think our tires only last up to 2 years maximum, but we are completely wrong. Tires can, in fact, with proper care and storage, can last up to an incredible ten years. The team at Robert’s Collision and Repair has put together a list of the best-kept secrets of tire maintenance:
Exposure to UV rays shortens the lifespan of your tires. Keep them inside as much as possible.
Inspect your tires and rims every month. Make sure to look out for cracks in the sidewall, along with continually monitoring your tread depth.
The appropriate amount of tread depth will depend on where you live and your climate. If it is rainy or snowy, you will need a different tread depth, compared to someone who lives in a sunny and humid climate. Ask us about the appropriate tread depth for your tires.
Overall, keep your tires away from sunlight, ozone, an environment with a stable temperature as much as possible.
If you follow the tips listed above, your tires should last approximately 6 to 10 years. However, this time frame greatly depends on your driving habits. If you have any questions about your vehicle’s tires, do not hesitate to ask us. We also can repair your tires or order you a whole new set. Call us at 831-373-1534.
