Honda tire tips: How to keep them rolling safely

Your tires are some of the most vital safety components on your Honda or whatever you drive. In an ultimate sense, your tires are the key thing between you and the road so it's important to keep them in first-rate condition. And when they start to wear out, there's a point at which it's just as important to replace them. Here are some tips from our service experts at Honda of Downtown Los Angeles to keep your tires healthy and help keep you safe.

Tire maintenance: An often-overlooked priority

It's not uncommon for perfectly conscientious Los Angeles drivers to get their Honda's oil changed regularly - which, of course, is very important - but forget to have their tires checked regularly. We suggest doing both: Just ask us to check your tires every time we change your oil. Otherwise, your tires could start developing uneven wear patterns or other issues that could eventually become safety issues you're not even aware of.

Tire rotation: A simple step that helps keep you safer

We recommend that you get your tires rotated with every oil change. One reason: Your Honda engine is on top of your tires, which can cause them to wear more rapidly than the back tires. By rotating your tires regularly, you help your tires wear more evenly, which helps them all grip the road in about the same way. That also helps make your ride safer as you drive around the streets of Culver City or Inglewood, CA.

Wheel alignment: Another valuable safety step

Your wheels and tires need to be aligned properly because if they're not, your tires won't meet the road at the correct angle. It's important to have your wheels pointing straight and true, and to have your tires well-centered in the wheel wells. Misalignment can mean your steering isn't as precise or accurate as it should be, and that can obviously be a risky situation when you're driving along the freeways around West Hollywood or Glendale CA.

Times when you need a wheel alignment

We strongly recommend getting a wheel alignment whenever you get new tires. It's also important to do if you lower or lift your vehicle, if you've had a fender-bender or even if you just run into a curb hard. Some of those seemingly minor events can knock your alignment off and you may not even notice it. If you do notice that your steering seems off or you feel a pull to one side, an alignment is probably needed and we can do one for you.

Just ask us to do a free alignment check

Once again, we suggest having us check your alignment with every oil change - or at least once a year. We can also check your steering to see if it seems straight, true and precise. We can check your tires to see if there are signs of unusual tire wear that might indicate an alignment is needed.
