In and Out Tires will help you keep your tires in tiptop shape.
It’s been a miserably hot summer so far. But the weather dudes are predicting some cooler days ahead. Of course, those lower temperatures are still pretty high and mean the roads are hot. If the roadways are hot, then your tires are going to get hotter than normal and could suffer damage from the heat.
“Record heat has raised more than temperatures this summer, as the nation struggles to retain its cool. Just as heat takes its toll on people and electric bills, it also impacts car reliability and safety,” consumerreports.org says. “By some accounts, tire blowouts are on the rise, creating dangers for travelers. But you can reduce this risk, if you follow some simple maintenance tips.”
Consumerreports.org adds, “Hot weather exacerbates heat build-up and weakens the tire, potentially leading to abrupt and sometimes catastrophic failure. On a hot 90-degree day at our track, surface temperatures easily exceed 150-degrees. Think about what your tires are experiencing while you’re enjoying the drive in a cool air-conditioned car.”
The best thing you can do to keep your tires in great shape and make them last through hot and cold weather is to make sure they’re inflated to the correct pressure. Consumerreports.org explains:
“Tire pressure is the life-blood of any tire; An under-inflated tire generates more heat due to excessive sidewall flexing, adversely affecting handling and fuel economy. Also, the tires will wear out faster. …
“The correct air pressure will help keep your tires’ temperature down within the serviceable range. The key here is using the correct inflation pressure. Based on our experience and a number of industry surveys, most tires are not inflated correctly. Those that are under-inflated are typically the result of no or infrequent pressure checks. However, some consumers go the other way when they over-inflate their tires using the sidewall rating—that’s the maximum pressure and the not service pressure as defined by the vehicle manufacturer, which is typically listed on a driver’s door jamb placard.”
Once you get your tires to the correct pressure, it pays to check them monthly with a good tire gauge. If you find you’re having to fill one tire frequently, you may have a leak and you need to get it checked out and repaired.
