In today's blog we are going to look into one of the most important things to do before your next ride. Tire care and maintenance. Here are some questions that we run across at our shop, Let's look at them and more importantly, the answers.
One of the most frequent questions we get is “should I check my tires before a ride?” The simple answer is yes, tires can develop High low spots, dry cracking, and just overall damage from everyday driving. To avoid checking constantly, look for more durable tires manufactured by a reputable tire company.
vvAnother question we get is “should I check my air pressure after a ride?”. Yes, checking tire pressure is an easy way to tell if any obvious damage has occurred. Most professionals recommend that you keep your tires inflated to at least 42 pounds. Another way to remain safe is to check the dates on your tires. Checking the dates on your tires is easy, just look for an oval with 4 numbers in it. The 1st 2 numbers represent the week of the year it was manufactured and the last 2 numbers represent the year. If your tires are more than 5 years old it's recommended to get them changed so they remain secure.
