Now that you’re a proud owner of a new set of tires, it’s important to maintain them. The four tires on your vehicle are the only parts to come in contact with and keep you connected to the road. For safety and good performance, you must properly care for, maintain and inspect your tires. At Mastercraft, we want you to maintain your tires in order to receive optimum performance, to get the full life from your tires, as well as to help keep you safe. For more information on proper tire maintenance and tips, take a look at our guide.
Some final thoughts:
- New is best! – Mastercraft recommends that you never purchase or install used tires. Not all tire damage that can lead to tire failure is outwardly visible. Such damage can eventually lead to tire failure. Used tires, especially tires with an unknown history, should be considered dangerous.
- Buying all four is the safest! When replacing tires on a vehicle, it’s recommended and preferred that all four tires be replaced at the same time. However, if you can only purchase two new tires at a time, the new pair should always be installed on the rear axle for both front and rear-wheel drive vehicles. Many people assume that new tires should go on the front, especially if they have a front-wheel drive vehicle, but this is not correct.
