Tire Smart at Charles River Saab

Do your PART! Proper tire care and safety is simple and easy! We recommend checking your tires monthly, including the spare. If you think you may have a tire problem or are unsure of the condition of your tires, consult one of our Service Consultants as soon as possible.

P is for Pressure

Under-inflation is a tire’s prime enemy. It results in unnecessary tire stress, irregular wear, loss of control & accidents. A tire can lose up to half of its air pressure and not appear to be flat!

A is for Alignment

Is your vehicle pulling to one side, or shaking? A bad jolt from hitting a curb or pothole can throw your front end out of alignment and damage your tires. Have us check the alignment periodically to ensure that your car is properly aligned.

R is for Rotation

Regularly rotating your vehicle’s tires will help you achieve more uniform wear. Unless your vehicle owner’s manual has a specific recommendation, the guideline for tire rotation is approximately every 5,000 miles.

T is for Tread

Measure it and inspect it. Advanced and unusual wear can reduce the ability of tread to grip the road in adverse conditions. Visually check your tires for uneven wear, looking for high and low areas or unusually smooth areas. Also check for signs of damage.
