In the following guide, we’ll cover some of the most simple and effective ways on how to make your tires last longer!

Long Life Tires: Tips and Tricks

With proper care, you can prolong the life of your tires so they live to their full potential lifespan. Here are some tips:

  • Tire Rotations — Follow your Acura model’s recommended maintenance schedule regarding tire rotations. Typically, you can expect to need to rotate your tires every 5,000 miles. Rotating tires helps prevent uneven tire wear, which is essential to maintaining the most efficient functionality and safety of your tires. You can even include your spare tire in each rotation for long life tires.
  • Check Tire Pressure – You can typically find the recommended tire pressure (PSI) inside your driver’s side door. With a tire pressure gauge or your Acura’s TPMS, be sure to check that the PSI is remaining as it should. Note that in the winter, your tires will deflate, and in the summer they will inflate.
  • Wheel Balancing – Wheel balancing is essential to make sure that weight is being evenly distributed across the frame. If your tires are imbalanced, you will have quicker tire wear, which will shorten the lifespan of your tires and could lead to flats or blowouts.
  • Wheel Alignment – Wheel alignment ensures that all of your wheels are perfectly parallel. An alignment should be performed twice a year, or especially after hitting a curb, pothole, or other obstruction as this can throw your alignment off. A shaky steering wheel is an indicator of misalignment.
