Your tires get your vehicle rolling down the road to get you from point A to point B. Without your tires, you aren't going to be moving very far, if anywhere at all, at least not without damaging your vehicle. Tires are an important part of your vehicle, and they need to be cared for much like you would take care of the engine or the paint on the vehicle you drive. Your tires should be inspected often, have air added to them when necessary, and rotated often. If you aren't doing these things, you may have an issue with your tires and you may need to have them repaired or replaced more often than necessary. Read on for some signs that your tires need to be repaired or replaced.

You're Adding Air Often

If you are adding air often to your tires, it may be because your tires are damaged in some way, and you could have a slow leak. Slow leaks can turn into a major problem, especially if you don't notice it right away and you have a complete flat before too long. Driving on your tires low or flat can create more of an issue for you. If you suspect a puncture or some other minor damage to your tire, you need to have your tire repaired right away to prevent damaging the entire tire and having to spend the money on a new one. A puncture can be repaired with a patch repair. You can also do this yourself, but if you take it to a professional tire repair shop, you'll know that it was done properly.

You're Using More Gas

If you are using more gas in your vehicle, it could be because your tires need some attention. You could have a low tire, a flat tire, or your tire may need to be replaced because the tread on your tire may be too worn out. If you notice that you are using more gas than usual, have your tires inspected to see if they need some attention. Sometimes just having them rotated to even out the wear can be helpful.

Your Vehicle Is Veering

If you notice that your vehicle is veering left or right and you are having a more difficult time staying on the road, it could be because of a tire issue. Your tires may be too worn out on one side, and it could be causing them to pull your vehicle. If your tires are low on one side this can happen as well. Have your tires rotated and balanced to prevent this from happening to you.

If you aren't taking the time to take care of your tires, your vehicle could suffer in the long run, and so can your pocketbook. Take your vehicle to your local tire repair shop to have your tires inspected, rotated, balanced, filled, patched, or replaced if necessary.
