Tire Storage

Here at Lakewood our Service department offers storage for your tires. If you have multiple sets of tires, proper tire storage is a must. (Just setting them off in the corner of your garage isn't enough.) Proper storage ensures that your tires' appearance and performance are maintained. Before you store your tires, be sure to inspect each one for damage or uneven wear. 

 

How to Store Your Tires

  • Store your tires indoors in a clean, cool and dark location away from direct sunlight, sources of heat and ozone such as hot pipes or electric generators.
  • Be sure the surfaces on which tires are stored are clean and free from grease, gasoline or other substances that could deteriorate the rubber.
  • If storing outdoors raise tires off the ground and use water proof covering with holes to prevent moisture build-up
  • If tires are on vehicle, store on blocks to remove load from the tires. Maintain placard inflation pressure

4 ADVANTAGES OF TIRE ROTATION

The advantages of tire rotation are many, including money savings, fuel efficiency increases, better vehicle control and better tire performance. Read more about the 4 advantages of tire rotation below.

Advantage 1 - Save Money

Tire rotation will save you money by promoting equal tire wear. Your tires will last longer and perform more effectively. Your fuel efficiency will go up, saving you money on gas. Your car will steer and brake better, saving costs of repairs to these parts of your drive train.

Advantage 2 - Improve Fuel Efficiency

Properly rotated tires help the car steer and handle better. This increases fuel efficiency by keeping tire friction at its lowest safe level.

Advantage 3 - Better Vehicle Control

If all four tires are wearing down evenly, your vehicle can respond to demands such as a quick acceleration to pass, a sudden jam on the brakes, and be more responsive on tight corners. As well, equally stressed tires will help maintain your wheel alignment and balance, by reducing horizontal friction with the road.

Advantage 4 - Better Tire Performance

Tire rotation just before winter will improve your traction on wet, slippery and icy roads. The tires that do the gripping - those in line with the differential that distributes drive shaft forces - will have slightly fresher tread to perform this important task.
