5 Ways to Give Your Tires the TLC They Deserve!

As a car owner, you should know how important it is to stay on top of your vehicle’s maintenance. Not only will it save you time and money in the long run, but it will also help keep your car running as smoothly and efficiently as possible.

One of the most crucial components that play an essential role in your car’s overall health is its tires. Unfortunately, they happen to be one of the most overlooked components as well. After all, they don’t require any sort of regular servicing like an oil change or brake check.

If you’re guilty of taking your tires for granted, it’s about time you start paying attention to them and maintaining them regularly. Otherwise, your automobile may experience issues such as decreased fuel economy, and reduced steering control, which might even get you in dangerous situations.


How to Keep Your Tires in Good Condition

Taking care of your car tires isn’t difficult or time-consuming. With just some basic steps, you can keep them in good condition for years and years. What are these steps, you ask? Find out below!

1. Check the tire pressure.

Having the right tire pressure ensures optimal performance and helps with fuel efficiency at the same time. You can find the recommended tire pressure in your car owner’s manual or on a sticker inside the driver’s door. Make sure to check the pressure of all your tires, including your spare tire, at least once a month and before long road trips. If the pressure is too low or too high, adjust it accordingly.

2. Inspect your tires regularly.

It’s always a good idea to give your tires a visual inspection at least once a week. Look for any signs of damage or wear, such as cracks, bulges, or punctures. If you notice any of these issues, have your trusted mechanic examine them further and consider acting on whatever advice or recommendation they give.

3. Rotate your tires periodically.

Tire rotation, a process that involves moving the tires from one position to another, can extend the life of your tires and improve your car’s handling. Rotate your tires every 5,000 to 8,000 miles, or as recommended by your car manufacturer.

4. Align your wheels.

Misaligned wheels can cause uneven wear on tires, leading to a shorter lifespan. They can also affect your car’s handling and fuel efficiency. That’s why it’s critical to have your wheels aligned at least once a year or if you see any signs of misalignment (ex. your vehicle pulling to one side or vibrating at high speeds).

5. Avoid overloading your car.

Overloading your car can put excessive weight on your tires, causing them to wear out faster. Know your car’s weight limit so you won’t make the mistake of carrying more than the recommended number of passengers or cargo.

6. Park in a shaded area.

Constant exposure to direct sunlight can cause your tires to deteriorate faster than normal. Whenever possible, park your car in a shaded area or use a car cover to protect your tires from the sun’s rays.


Tired of Owning a Clunker That’s Giving You Endless Headaches?

Having worn tires is easy to fix; you just need to replace them. However, if your vehicle has an assortment of other issues that are stressing you out and burning a big hole in your pocket, the smartest thing to do is to simply part ways with it.

Don’t worry, you can still make good use of it for the last time. By turning it over to us at Breast Cancer Car Donations, you get to help save the lives of indigent breast cancer patients in your area.

We’ll sell your donated vehicle through an auction and distribute the proceeds to our breast cancer-focused nonprofit partners. These IRS-approved 501(c)(3) nonprofits cater to uninsured and underprivileged breast cancer patients, providing them with financial assistance to help cover the costs of their treatments, doctor consultations, hospital fees, medications, follow-up care, and other essential healthcare services.

Our charity partners also provide their beneficiaries with easy access to local healthcare facilities where they can get free breast cancer screening and diagnosis.

Our nonprofit partners also use the funding they get from us to promote breast cancer awareness and provide prevention, education, and counseling services to the public.

To thank you for your generosity, we’ll promptly send you by mail the 100% tax-deductible sales receipt of your vehicle following its auction. This receipt will serve as your ticket for claiming the maximum tax deduction in the next tax season.

You can count on us to haul your vehicle away at a time, date, and place of your preference. Just let us know when and where, and we’ll coordinate with a licensed towing company to get the job done wherever your vehicle is located in the United States. Oh, and our towing service is free to our donors.

Almost all types of vehicles are qualified for our donation program. They don’t even have to be in good condition when we collect them from their donors.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to send them here or call us at 866-540-5069. For more information on our vehicle donation program, head over to our FAQs page.
