Fresh Tires From Anchor Subaru Make Cars and Drivers Happy Around the Areas of North Smithfield, Providence, Cranston, Johnston, Cumberland, and Attleboro

In the car world, tires are -- literally -- where the rubber meets the road. Cars have seemingly innumerable moving parts and complex systems. Most work toward a single goal: deliver power to the tires. For thousands of miles, tires bear the burden of putting power to pavement. With that kind of stress, it's now wonder they eventually wear out. They're only rubber, after all.

It's important to have your tires checked or replaced regularly. Worn tires with poor traction waste power and fuel, inhibit performance, and risk dangerous blowout situations. Fresh, grippy tires improve performance and efficiency. From acceleration to ride quality, tires affect it all. Neglecting them has potentially disastrous consequences.

Sometimes tires are worn to the point where it's obvious they need to be swapped for a new set. In that case, come in to the Anchor Subaru service center and we'll find the right set for replacement. If you're not sure whether your tires need replacing, we can perform an inspection and advise you accordingly.

Your Tire Inflation:
Proper tire inflation is essential for safe driving and long tire life. It's wise to check your tires air pressure at least once a month with an accurate tire pressure gauge. Be sure to check pressure while your tires are cold and have not been used recently. Even driving a mile will cause your tire pressure to increase and give you an inaccurate reading.

While you will loose some air in the tire over time (which is why it should be checked monthly) If you see your tire with a noticeable sag each week this may indicate a possible tire or wheel assembly problem. Call Anchor Subaru  immediately if you experience this.

Check Your Tire Tread:
Anchor Subaru  suggests you check your tire tread every 3,000 miles. Here are two simple tests:

Take the Penny Test: Simply insert a penny into your tire's tread groove with Lincoln's head upside down and facing you. If you can see all of Lincoln's head, it's time to replace your tires.
- OR -

Check the Tread Wear Indicator Bar: Located at the bottoms of the tread grooves in several locations around the tire. When a tire is so worn that these bars become visibly flush with the adjacent tread ribs, it's time to replace the tire.

Know What Certain Wear Patterns Mean:

When wear patterns emerge, they can indicate problems with your tires or your vehicle that reduce the useful life of a tire. Have your tires checked by one of Anchors technicians if you notice any of these common wear patterns:

Wear on both edges: UNDER INFLATION
Under inflation increases the tread wear on a tire's outside edges and generates excessive heat reducing tire toughness. Soft tires also increases rolling resistance which reducing fuel economy.

Wear in center: OVER INFLATION
Over inflation increases wear on the center tread.

Cups or dips in the tread: WORN PARTS
Cupping or dipping is most common on front tires, although rear tires can cup as well.

Sawtooth edges: MISALIGNMENT
Misalignment causes erratic scrubbing against the road giving the tire's edges a saw tooth or feathered appearance.

Tire Balancing:
If your tires are unbalanced, you'll notice vibration. This can lead to driver fatigue, premature or irregular tire wear and unnecessary wear to your vehicle's suspension. Your tires should be balanced when they are mounted on wheels for the first time or when they are remounted after repair. Check your tire balance at the first sign of vibration or shimmy.

Vehicle Alignment:

Your vehicle is properly aligned when all of its suspension and steering components are working smoothly and when its tire and wheel assemblies are running straight and true. If you notice uneven tread wear, it could be due to a misalignment and your vehicle should be serviced by one of Anchors technicians on one of our alignment machines that can align your tires within very specific tolerances.

Tire Rotation:
While many people are knowledgeable enough to rotate their own tires, the procedure is especially quick and easy for Anchor's trained technicians with all the latest equipment. Your vehicle's owner's manual will specify the proper rotation pattern and schedule for your vehicle. If no specific schedule is indicated, a good rule of thumb is to rotate your tires every 6,000 to 8,000 miles.

Tire Repair:
Tire repairs should be made by a trained professional. Proper repair procedure includes dismounting the tire from the wheel. This allows for thorough inspection of the tire for damage, as well as the use of a patch and plug to repair any punctures that fall within the guidelines for repair.
