  • Carry a reliable pressure gauge.
  • Increase air pressure when carrying extra weight.

Alignment
The minimal cost of an alignment will more than pay for itself in tire performance and mileage.
  • Check all 4 tires routinely for signs of uneven wear.
  • A change in handling or steering can indicate an alignment is needed.
  • Professional evaluation and equipment is necessary for a correct alignment.

Rotation
Regular rotation will insure even wear on all 4 tires.
  • Rotate tires every 6,000 to 8,000 miles.
  • Do not use 'temporary use only" spares when rotating.  A regular spare tire can be used.
  • Have a technician check for any mechanical problems before rotation.

Balancing
Uneven weight distribution can affect the riding comfort and performance of your tires. Tires and wheels should be balanced when:
  • A tire is dismounted and the remounted.
  • A flat repair has occurred.
  • Tires and wheels are rotated.
  • New tires are mounted on wheels for the first time.
  • When used tires are mounted on existing wheels.
