If you understand what to look for with regards to tire issues, you could possibly reduce the chances of a blowout while traveling down the highway. Here are some tire maintenance tips from Woody Smith Ford that you can put to work for your Rexburg, ID commute!

Look at the side walls of the tires for any signs of bulges or deep cracks in the rubber. Once inside your vehicle, be sure to turn the steering wheel in both directions so you get a better look at the inside tire walls too. It only takes one issue to cause a serious problem at high speeds.

Look closer at the treads of the tires for signs of uneven wear. If you see any bare patches or the tread looks like it could be separating from the rest of the tire, it needs to be brought to the attention of a mechanic.

Come by our Ford parts and repair shop so we can schedule your vehicle to have the tires rotated on a regular basis and spot any potential issues.
