An imbalance can cause your car to overturn at high speeds, so making it a priority is a must.

First, you need to check the air pressure. Under-inflated tires can lead to poor fuel efficiency, rough handling, and even a blow-out. The owner’s manual will tell you what the safe range should be.

Next, you should take a peek at the tread depth. This is the imprinted pattern on the tires that leaves marks in the mud. Worn down tread can reduce the overall traction, which can cause issues when stopping or traveling over various types of terrain. You also need to look for any tears, cracks, bulges, or wedged objects.

As for other maintenance, rotations and alignments should be performed every 8,046 to 12,847 km (5,000 to 8,000 miles). Never overload the vehicle with too much weight, and replace any worn-down tires immediately. Your set should always be matching, and the spare should also be inspected regularly.
