Chevrolet Tire Tread and Pressure Service

Chevrolet Tread Depth & Tire Pressure Service

What Is Expected with Tire Tread and Pressure Service

Tire tread and pressure should be inspected at regular intervals, perhaps on a weekly basis at home by the vehicle’s owner but also by a professional during routine scheduled maintenance or if there seems to be a problem. At home, a penny should fit far enough into the tire tread to cover Abraham Lincoln’s head, and a simple air pressure gauge can be used to measure air pressure, which at least gives the owner an idea of whether everything is working properly. A reputable technician is going to have a more precise pressure gauge along with an air compressor to add air if needed and understands how to use better tools to measure the tread according to manufacturer recommendations. Further, the professional can provide a detailed visual inspection to look for any weak points or potential troublesome areas in the tires.


Why Routine Tire Inspections Are Important

Tires are the first safety measure between a vehicle and the road, but unfortunately not every type of damage they can sustain is readily apparent to the layman. Most people don’t think to check their tires for nails until the tire is already flat, which can sometimes take a week or even a month to happen if a nail or screw sets itself properly and blocks off the escaping air. Low air pressure, or too much for that matter, can lead to uneven tread wear, poor gas mileage, and change the ratio of traction between the tire and the road surface.

What Can Happen when Tires Aren’t Maintained

When tires aren’t properly maintained, the very worst thing that can happen is they cause dangerous driving conditions which leads to a traffic accident. More common, but not a nice situation, is for the driver to find themselves with a flat tire on the side of the road with potentially dangerous conditions under which to install the spare. Comparably not such a bad consequence is the tires will wear out before they should, and even though tires aren’t expensive in the overall scheme of car ownership there’s no reason to take on the expense more often than necessary.

Hiring a Dealer for Car Repairs

Although local mechanics can often conduct light maintenance and small repairs, dealers are known for putting in the time and effort of trained technicians to do the work right so you can safely return to the road. In Norwalk, Iowa, and the other communities in the greater Des Moines area, Gregg Young Chevrolet is ​well-known for not just selling great vehicles but also for providing amazing maintenance and repair work when the need arises.
