Taking care of your tires is an important part of automobile maintenance. Tires that are kept in their best shape give drivers a lot of benefit. Two things to focus on with your tires are their tread wear and air pressure. We here at MINI of Portland want you to know why these two aspects of tires are important.

If your tire tread is bad, it can be a safety hazard, as bald tires are more prone to blowouts. Tires with bad tread also can lower your fuel economy. To keep your tire tread in good shape, have your tires changed when you reach the mileage recommendation.

Tire pressure also is very important. Tires with too little air also can lead to blowouts and they will lead to lower gas mileage in your vehicle. Heed your tire sensors, and add air to your tires when needed.
