Tips for Proper Tire Care

Your tires are one of the most important components of your vehicle, so it's important that you take proper care of them. Many people don't know how to properly care for their tires, which can result in tires that wear unevenly, blow out and need to be replaced more often.


If you follow a few simple tips for taking care of your tires, you will find that your high-quality tires last longer, saving you money in the long run. McCarthy Hyundai of Blue Springs is one of the Hyundai dealers in Kansas that wants to ensure that your vehicle stays in great shape, and so we've assembled the following tips and tricks for you.


·         Check your tread. The tread on your tire is important, and should be checked roughly every 3,000 miles. You can use the penny test to check your tread—simply insert a penny into the groove of your tire's tread with Lincoln's head upside down. If you can see all of his head, you may need to replace your tires.

·         Keep them inflated. If your tires are underinflated, you may experience uneven wear and faster aging of the tires. If they're overinflated, you may run the risk of a blowout. Improper tire air pressure can also affect your fuel economy. Check your owner's manual to determine the proper level of inflation.

·         Get them rotated. If you don't rotate your tires, they can wear unevenly, which will mean you'll need to replace them sooner. Stop by the Hyundai dealers in Kansas at McCarthy Hyundai to have your tires rotated at our service department.

·         Check their alignment. If your tires are out of alignment, that can also cause uneven wear. The service staff at McCarthy Hyundai of Blue Springs can help check the alignment of your tires.


Caring for your tires is crucial to the well-being of your vehicle. Proper tire care can keep your tires looking new, driving great and staying in good shape well into the future!
