Tires with Integrity.
At Integra Tire and Auto Centre, we believe safety starts where your vehicle meets the road – your tires! Tires are, arguably, one of the most important aspects of your vehicle as they’re the only part of your vehicle that makes contact with the road. They can affect your vehicles performance, handling, fuel efficiency, and other important factors.
Because your tires are so important, it is key that you maintain them. First and foremost, it is a good idea to do regular checks on your tire pressure and ensure that your tires are properly inflated. You can find your vehicle’s specs for PSI in the manual, door placard, or sometimes online. Another good practice is to have your tires rotated yearly- this will ensure even wear. This is also a great time to inspect for any cuts and irregular wear.
Another tip is to know when you need new tires for your vehicles application! For example, although all-season tires may perform in all weather, they do not perform to the same standard as winter tires on ice and deep snow. You should also regularly inspect your tread with a tread depth measurement tool. When you get near 4/32″ to 3/32″ of tread left- look at replacing your tires soon.
