The Importance of Keeping Your Tires Properly Inflated

You should never underestimate the importance of keeping your tires properly inflated. Although proper tire inflation is often overlooked by many car owners, it can have a significant impact on how well your car drives and how long your tires last.

When your tires are not properly inflated, it means that pressure is not being distributed evenly across your tire's tread. In time, this will cause your tire's tread to wear down and ultimately separate. Your car will also use more gas as it is working harder to drive properly. Underinflated tires also generate more heat and can…

Choosing Between a Compact Temporary Spare Tire and a Full-Size Spare Tire

One of the features on a new vehicle that you need to take into consideration is the spare tire that it comes with. Smaller models are going to usually equip you with a compact temporary tire, if anything at all. This tire is designed to replace a flat and get you moving again. You can't finish up a road trip on this tire. You'll need to stop shortly after and have it replaced. You also can't hit top speeds with a compact spare tire.

A full-size spare is an ideal spare tire option.

Easily Check Tire Pressure and Tread Depth

At Honda of Santa Fe, we value your on-road safety. Optimal tire pressure and tread depth enhance that safety.

Monthly, check your tires' pressure. See your owner's manual or door jam for your vehicle's ideal pressure. Measure each tire with an air-pressure gauge. Add or reduce air as necessary. Under-inflating causes poor response and may make a tire detach from its wheel. Over-inflating causes reduced surface-area contact between your tires and the road. Both sub-optimal conditions ruin tires' treads quickly on Santa Fe-area roads.
