Tire Care Tips in IllinoisFleet tire maintenance can extend the life of your tires. Checking tire pressure, rotating your tires, balancing your tires, and choosing the right set of commercial tires based on safety and handling all contribute to consistent performance.

Use the following tips to help you stay on top of tire maintenance:

  • Lug nuts must be torqued to the manufacturer’s recommended values, and they must be re-torqued to those values after driving approximately 50 to 100 miles on your new tires after the tire service.
  • Check tire pressure to ensure proper inflation. Underinflation can lead to excess heat, uneven tire wear, and decreased braking and handling capabilities, which may cause structural failures like blowouts and tread separation. Properly inflated tires will maximize tread life, improve handling, and increase fuel efficiency and overall driver safety.
  • Choose new tires designed for your application. Consider tire mileage, retreadability, manufacturer warranties, and cost when determining the best tires for your fleet. 
  • Be mindful of abnormal tire wear or damage to tires. Watch for signs of punctures, embedded objects, cracks, and bulges. Call for emergency roadside service if you experience a tire problem.

By taking proper care of your commercial truck and farm tires, you can improve tire life and performance while unlocking benefits like better fuel economy.
