Proper inflation is crucial for tire performance.Check the air pressure twice a month in your tires to avoid blowouts and increase gas mileage and decrease tire wear.You can purchase an adequate tire gauge at your local autoparts store for about $5.

Rotating your tires saves you money and helps to snag possible problems before they get to large.Rotate your tires every other oil change to maintain a more even tread wear.While you are rotating those tires make sure to do a quick visual and see if there is any abnormal wear(bald on one side, chopped wear pattern, etc.)

I just got the truck and it has a few problems that I need to fix sp here that are When I drive down the road it pulls to the left tires are ok front end alinment ok also no wipers


SOME THINGS i WOULD CHECK...
1st. check tire inflation. make sure they all are the same. under inflated tire can cause a pull.
2nd. jack up front end, placing hands on the tires in the 3oclock and 9 oclock positions see if you can wiggle the tire in and out. If there is any play, you will feel it right away. This is classic tie rod end wear and is the cause of your pull. if you replace it yourself, you will need an alignment after.
good luck

I have a 2004 Pontiac Grand AM . My car slides all over the place when it rains, or during the icy winter. What type of tires should I buy?


If you live in the northern part and north east you should purchase a tire specifically made for bad weather and avoid the all season type tires. The latter will do best on dry surfaces, and barely get you by on ice, snow, and wet roads. Most tire manufacturers make a rain tire, and bad weather tread. The brand is up to you. One more thing, make sure the tires are inflated to the proper pressure, over inflation will cause the symptoms you specify.

How do I reset the low tire indicator light on a 2008 Corolla? I've already properly inflated the tires. According to the manual it's supposed to automatically reset a few minutes after proper inflation.


Have any of the tires been replaced recently? If so get the sensors checked for a dead sensor. If you have a dead sensor, blame it on your tire guy. They destroy them with unfortuante regularity.

...Just make sure that when you check the tires, use an accurate gauge. The tire pumps at service stations are not accurate, and the pen-looking things to check tire pressures are not accurate either.

tire pressure sensor continues to say check tire pressure when tire pressure is ok. Does sensor need to be replaced or can it be cleaned or what?


The first step in diagnosis would be to make sure all the sensors are calibrated to the car which requires a tool that some tire dealers & car dealers have.
