If you have noticed that your tires are wearing unevenly, it may be time to bring your vehicle in for service. The problem could be as simple as uneven air pressure, which is an easy fix. Or it could be a more serious alignment issue, which is also usually a simple fix, but more complicated than adding or letting out air from your tires. Uneven tire wear is not just a future financial concern. If left unchecked, uneven tire wear can lead to a blow-out, which can place you and your family in real danger. St. Paul Automotive does not want our customers getting into car accidents at any time, but especially one that we could have helped you avoid by checking your tires and fixing the problem.
Importance of Tires and Your Car’s Safety
It is truly impossible to overstate the importance of tire safety. Your tires are the only part of your car that are always in contact with the road, so they should always be in the best possible shape. They, at a minimum, need to have enough tread to ensure that you can accelerate and stop at safe rates of speed in a wide variety of weather condition. If your tires are wearing unevenly, you run a greater risk of losing control of your vehicle while driving.
Tires are under constant stress and pressure. Even if you drive very gently, time will cause the tread to wear down. And the harder you drive, the faster your tires will wear down and need to be replaced. If you get your tires replaced at our shop, we also offer free tire rotations. Rotating your tires regularly helps to increase their lifespan.

Your tires can also be affected by other systems of your car, such as your brakes. If you have a heavy driving foot, you are more likely to find that your tires and your brakes need replacing more frequently. Brakes, like tires, are under constant pressure and stress. But even if your brakes are in perfect working order, they will not perform as designed if your tires do not have enough tread to let them do their job.
The staff at St. Paul Automotive prioritizes your safety. Tires that are in good condition are essential to safe driving. We want you to feel confident that the work we have done on your car means that it meets minimum safety standards at least.
