Volvo Tire Care and Wheel Protection for Drivers in Florida

You may wonder why it's so important to inspect vehicle tires in Florida routinely. They may appear to be in perfect condition, but you may not be able to spot imperfections. You can remain in control of your Volvo all year, with routine tire maintenance at the Tire Service Center at Volvo Cars Sarasota. Even though drivers from Lakewood Ranch to North Port, FL.

Vehicles in Florida may not have to contend with ice or snow, but they do have to deal with hot weather all year, including extreme heat and humidity during the Summer. Winter tires may not be necessary for Volvo drivers in the Bradenton area, but those hot road conditions can still negatively impact even high-end all-season tires. Hot road conditions and temperatures impact tires by expanding the inside air, which leads to separating tire treads, a common cause of accidents.

Tread separation is also caused by a lack of bonding between the rubber and steel materials due to a faster bond deterioration. The separation creates an increased risk of drivers losing control of the vehicle, which poses a threat to Venice, FL drivers, as well as other vehicles on the road.

How to Properly Care for Your Tires

Tires are a big investment for drivers in Bradenton and an easy to ignore when the car appears to drive fine. However, neglecting to have your tires routinely maintained for proper alignment, rotation, and tread inspection, their life span dramatically shortens. Prolong the life of your tires by following these guidelines to get the most out of your investment:

Tire Rotations

There is no vehicle that has perfectly even weight distribution across all tires. For the most even wear, have the tires rotated every 5,000-miles. Depending on the tires and vehicle model, tires can get a front-to-back or diagonal pattern that combines front-to-back and side-to-side rotations. You'll get more even weight distribution with regular rotations and increase the lifespan of your tires.

Tire Inflation

Proper inflation in your tires plays a crucial role in prolonging the life of your tires. Low tire pressure causes increased friction and rolling resistance, negatively impacting the fuel economy of your vehicle. What's worse is that the increased roll resistance makes tires hotter than normal. The buildup of heat causes overheating and wear at the tires' edges which flexes the steel belts even more, causing a blowout.

Wheel Alignment

When your Volvo left the factory, the wheels are set to precise angles for peak performance, steering, and steadiness. The prevision of the tires may change over time based on driving habits and terrain, which causes issues with alignment. It's not unlike the effects of walking with an injury on one leg or foot. After a while, you may start experiencing pain from walking while favoring one side over another. The effects of an injury like this are residual injuries in other areas of your body. That's what happens when tires aren't properly maintained and inspected.

Tire Inspections

Inspecting tires regularly is as easy as checking the pressure when filling your gas tank. For a closer look, visit the dealership to inspect tread wear and overall condition, sidewall cracks or bulges, punctures, or other types of defects. Despite the number of miles driven, ties have a finite lifespan of approximately six years before the rubber compounds degrade past the point of repair. Keep in mind that worn tire treads caused by poor alignment or improper inflation could negate the warranty coverage for your tires.
