What Causes Tires to Wear Unevenly?

Row of tires

Your tires are the necessary components that keep your vehicle running smoothly throughout Xenia. Over time, your tires begin to wear down, and sometimes the tread wear can be uneven among your tires. There are several different causes as to why this occurs, and the service department at Xenia is here to show you how you can prevent uneven tire tread wear and keep your tires in top condition. 

What Tire Wear Means

Your tires are built to give you better traction on the Springfield roads. Once your tires start to wear unevenly, it can affect the traction and grip your vehicle has on the road due to the fact that your tires are unevenly contacting the road. This can make it dangerous when driving through wet or bumpy roads. So, what causes tires to wear unevenly? There are two main causes of uneven tire tread wear: 

High/Low Tire Pressure 

It’s important to ensure that your tires are at the right level of air pressure, meaning that they are not overfilled but not underfilled either. When tires have too much air or not enough, they have to work extra hard to perform like normal, causing additional tire tread wear. The best way to prevent this from happening is to simply keep tabs on your tire pressure regularly. You can use a tire gauge to see the tire pressure levels of your tires, and tire gauges can be bought at any local Wilmington gas station. 

Tire Misalignment

When your wheels are misaligned, your steering and suspension mechanisms don’t work as properly as they should. This means you won’t have as much control over your vehicle when driving. Some of the reasons for tires becoming misaligned can include hitting a pothole, curb, or other road bumps. To make sure that your tires are properly aligned, you can schedule a visit with our service team at Key Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram FIAT to quickly get your tires back on track.
