Keeping up with routine tire maintenance has a positive effect on fuel economy, safety, handling, and tire life. In addition to replacing your tires when they are low on tread, you should get a tire rotation every 7,500 miles and a wheel alignment every 15,000 miles. But probably the easiest and most important tire maintenance service is making sure your tires are properly inflated. To do this, check the tire inflation once per month using a tire pressure gauge. If you want optimal accuracy, get a stick-type tire pressure gauge. Digital tire pressure gauges, on the other hand, are best if you want a gauge that’s easy to read. Dial gauges come with more features, but most of the time these features are not necessary.
