The Importance of Your Vehicle’s Tires
TIRE SALES AND INFORMATION | TIRE SHOP BOLTON
Tread depth is essential to a well-performing tire. Water accumulates on the road during wet conditions. Tires need tread for better traction during these harsh conditions. The grooves on your tires work to siphon water away from the tires when the road is wet.
When a vehicle is traveling too fast, or the tire treads are not able to channel enough water out from beneath the tire, hydroplaning may occur. Hydroplaning is when your vehicle’s tires lose contact with the road and skim across a thin layer of water instead, causing a loss of control of the vehicle.
Important to inspect
If the tread on the tires is not at the proper depth, it can become difficult for enough water to be carried out from beneath the tires. This will increase the possibility that you could lose control of the vehicle.

Some interesting facts.
tire pressure importance
tire pressure gauge
The tire pressure gauge allows you to measure the pounds per square inch (PSI) of your tires to ensure they are inflated to the manufacturer’s recommended pressure. Most passenger car tires should have between 32 and 35 psi pressure when they are cold.
maintain correct pressure
By maintaining the correct tire pressure, you will ensure increased fuel economy, and your vehicle will be a much safer and more comfortable driving vehicle. You should never try to visually estimate the inflation pressure of your tires. Always use a tire pressure gauge.
Ambient temperatures affect your tire pressure. Cold weather will cause tire air pressure to drop, while warm weather will cause tire pressure to increase.
when the seasons change
Overinflated tires become rigid and stiff, causing the tire’s contact patch, the amount of rubber that touches the road, to be reduced. This leads to a less comfortable ride, as well as uneven tread wear. The most common type of uneven tread wear is due to over inflation and is referred to as center wear.
Under inflated tires
Under inflated tires have adverse effects, as well. Under inflated tires do not hold their shape and are flatter to the ground. Therefore, more of the tire’s surface touches the road, causing the shoulders of the tire to wear prematurely. This is referred to as shoulder wear.
