Check Your Tires For Heavy Wear to Stay Safe on CT Streets

We know you love your Subaru Outback, Forester, Impreza, WRX, or Crosstrek, but do you know how important your tires really are to its performance. With help from our service team you can schedule an appointment to have your tires properly cared for or replaced. What should you look for? Here are some things to consider before you visit our dealership in Branford serving East Haven, New Haven, Hamden, and Wallingford, CT.

Ensure Proper Inflation. Properly inflated tires are one of the most important safety features, because they provide the best grip possible and ensure better performance from your vehicle. There is a placard on the inside of the driver's side door to tell you how much air should be in your tire, so get used to checking that and inflating them to the right level. If you are finding that you put air in every few days, your tires may need to be replaced due to a leak.

Check Tire Tread Often. You can tell a lot about your tires by looking at the tread, including whether there is uneven wear, alert you to a foreign object embedded in the tire, or let you know that your tread is too worn. Your tires are an important part of how your vehicle performs and in keeping you safe, so don't let them get too old or worn before replacing them.

Rotate Tires According To Schedule. This means that your tires will get even tread wear and if your technician notices uneven wear, it could indicate an issue in your alignment that needs to be addressed. This will save your tire from unnecessary damage and prolong its life. Rotating your tires often also ensures you have the best possible use out of them, giving you the chance to explore your surroundings with the knowledge that your car or SUV can help support you.

Use The Right Tires. Just as using the proper brake pads or oil filter is important for your car, so is the use of the right tires. This is because like other Subaru genuine parts, your tires are designed to perform at the best possible level according to what your car can do. All-wheel drive is a great feature to have, but doesn't matter much if your tires aren't up to par. Make sure that all four tires are the same brand, manufacturer, and size.
