Don’t Let Mud Wear Your Tires

Are you spinning your wheels with no thought to proper tire maintenance? Is spraying down your tires an afterthought? With so many carwash considerations, it’s easy to overlook the rubber and rims. But whether you’re driving around Woodstock or commuting to Atlanta, it’s important to keep your tread in top shape.

Driving on Safe Tires

That knee-high wheel of metal and rubber is one tough treading tire. Cars weigh roughly two tons, making tire maintenance one of the most fundamental aspects of car care. Keep tabs on the tire pressure, tread depth, and general wear of your vehicle’s tires. If you’re automobile is riding unevenly, it’s probably time to rotate your tires. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, over 11% of accidents begin with tire-related troubles.

Just like with car body upkeep, cleaning is crucial to riding smooth tires. Environmental considerations like rain, mud, leaves, and those rare salted roads can corrode your wheels. Towne Lake’s Carwash and Detail takes tire maintenance seriously; our Wheel Luster cleaning service includes hand finished wheels and tire shining. But for unexpected off-roading trips and daily grime, we have a few tips to keeping your tires spotless.

  • Choose a cleaner specific to your tires
  • Clean your tires before you clean the car body to prevent splashing
  • Clean your tires one at a time to keep the cleaner from drying
  • Don’t forget to clean the inside of wheel and around your hubcaps
  • Dry and dress your tires after cleaning

Rolling the streets is a dirty job, but somebody’s got to do it. Your tires take a lot of abuse: gravel, dirt, oil, and elements. But if you give them proper cleaning consideration, they’ll keep you cruising smooth whenever your rubber meets road.
