5 Fall Car Care Tips For Your Tires

Time flies by and it is officially Fall. When we think of Autumn, we think of falling leaves, hot chocolate, and pumpkins, but it is also a perfect time to take care of your vehicle. Fall is an excellent time to start preparing for winter, as many of us will drive in wet, snowy, or chilly weather this autumn. To prepare for the upcoming weather changes, the team at South Park Tire & Auto has compiled areas of your vehicle that need a little extra TLC:  Don’t forget about your tire pressure! Our technicians certainly have not! Tires can actually lose one pound of pressure for every 10 degrees of Fahrenheit. During autumn, the temperatures begin to make their descent, so right now is an excellent time to have your tire pressure inspected by our team.  Think about making the switch to winter tires!

Goldilocks and The Three Bears is a Lot Like Tire Pressure

Goldilocks and The Three Bears is a Lot Like Tire Pressure

Maintaining your tires is one of the most important vehicle safety components, regardless of whether you are driving an SUV, truck, or car. Not only does it ensure your safety, but it also provides the safety of your passengers and other drivers on the road. If your vehicle runs out of gas, you will slowly come to a stop. If an engine doesn’t receive preventative maintenance, it, most likely, will refuse to start. Driving on vehicles with incorrect tire pressure is risky -- disaster could strike at any time and any speed, as it affects how your vehicle responds to steering and braking input. Tires with incorrect pressure aren’t only dangerous, but can also change your vehicle’s gas mileage and overall performance.  When you drive on underinflated tires, the contact patch between your car and the road surface increases, this increased contact patch leads to more friction between the tire and road surface, which results in more wear on the tire and fuel consumptio ... read more
