But tire tread isn’t the only indicator of problems

Properly aligned, rotated and inflated tires will help save you money on gas. Regular tire service from Galaxy can help.
Here are a few pointers to help keep you and your tires rolling along trouble-free.
Have your tires rotated regularly? Your vehicle's manufacturer has specific recommendations for tire rotation. Keeping to this schedule will help extend tire life. Our expert Galaxy mechanics will provide you with this information and help keep you on track.
Keep your tires properly inflated. Your tires typically lose 1 psi (pound per square inch) each month. That adds up very quickly. And remember, temperature can have a major impact. A drop of 10°F can also cause a 1 psi loss in pressure. Low tire pressure, in turn, can result in reduced gas mileage and excessive heat buildup leading to tire damage.
Check for signs of excessive or uneven tire wear. Uneven wear on the inside or outside could be an indication that other problems are lurking, so make sure your tires are professionally inspected.
