When you’re searching for tires near me, call the trusted New Orleans tire pros at Twin Tire.
You were on your way home from Kinky Boots when your tire pressure light came on. Once you got home, you took a look at your tires and saw that the tread seemed to be wearing. That’s very irritating because it feels as if you just got new tires not too long ago and now you need them again.
This seems to happen a lot and you wonder if you’ve been buying bad tires.
Perhaps, but not likely if you’ve been buying them from a trusted New Orleans tire pro like those at Twin Tire Auto Care. It’s more likely that something else is going on.
That something else could be your driving style, according to Cincinnati auto dealer McCluskey Chevrolet.
“How you drive has a big impact on the health of your tires,” McCluskey says. “Poor driving habits can have you shopping frequently at tire dealers.”
Among the poor driving habits that McCluskey says will make tires wear out more quickly:
- Taking off too quickly
- Taking turns too quickly
- Stopping too quickly
- Driving at top speeds
- Driving haphazardly over road debris
“The best driving habits for your safety are also the best driving habits for your tires. Slow down, take turns more carefully, give yourself plenty of distance to brake, and steer clear of road hazards and you’ll preserve your tires while also reducing your risk of an accident,” McCluskey says.
McCluskey adds a note about things to watch out for: “Tire failure doesn’t always manifest itself as a flat or a blowout. If your tires are wearing down or the seams are bulging, you may notice a rumbling as you drive, feel vibrations, or feel the car pulling to one side. When tread wears down, you may also notice that your car loses traction in water or that it takes you longer to brake.”
While you're at Twin Tire, also check your auto air. If your auto air isn't cooling, you can take advantage of Twin Tire's June special on auto air conditioning: a/c drain, evac and recharge for only $99.95. That’s a savings of $40.04 over the normal price of $139.99.
And, if your auto air doesn’t need recharging, but needs a new compressor, or you need other auto care, you can take advantage of Twin Tire’s other June deal – 10 percent off on the mechanical service you need up to $100.
Ask a Twin Tire auto repair pro for full details on both deals. But take advantage of them now, they’re only good until the end of the month.
