Tire Tread Keeps You on the Road

If you have ever been driving and felt like your car, truck, or SUV was all over the road, one thing you might want to check before anything else is your tire tread. Your tread is what gives you traction on the road and without it, it can be very difficult to maintain a safe-feeling ride while you're driving.

This effect is amplified in wet road conditions. Without the right amount of tread on your tires, they cannot displace the water efficiently, which leads to your tires slipping and your vehicle hydroplaning. Neither of these is a comfortable feeling on the road.

By maintaining the recommended PSI levels in your tires and doing regular rotations, your tread will wear evenly. This leads to not only a safer driving experience, but it will also extend the life of your tires. So if it has been a while since you last checked or maintained your tires, then bring your vehicle into our service department here at Honda of Santa Monica and let us do an inspection and rotation on them for you.
