Toyota Tire Maintenance


Don’t Be Left Flat


Tires are one of the most critical components of your vehicle. They play a major role in ensuring your Toyota maintains optimal performance and safety. That means routine tire maintenance is extremely important. Without it you’ll end up with uneven wear and shortened tire life, which then leads to reduced fuel efficiency and poor handling.

In order to help protect you and your vehicle, Germain Toyota of Columbus provides routine tire maintenance in our state-of-the-art Toyota Service Center.

Things To Keep In Mind With Your Tires

Air Pressure

Maintaining the recommended level of air pressure in your tires not only puts less strain on your engine and other related components, but it also preserves the life of your tires. Most importantly, it allows them to provide your vehicle with the best level of performance possible. That means you get to enjoy a more exciting and smooth ride. Regardless of each tire’s physical condition, improper air pressure will cause it to miss the mark on performance — or even damage the tire.

There are a few different ways your tires’ air pressure levels can change. Even something as simple as the outside temperature can affect tire pressure. As the weather cools, air contracts and reduces pressure (and vice versa). So you’ll want to check the air pressure routinely.

Tire Pressure and Fuel Economy

According to the United States Department of Energy, properly inflated tires can return an additional 3.3 percent to your vehicle’s current fuel economy rating. But when your tires aren’t properly inflated, your vehicle’s engine and related components have to work harder to get you to your destination. This will cause a noticeable dip in your Toyota’s fuel economy. And inclement weather or adverse driving conditions only make the problem worse.

To get the best fuel economy from your Toyota, be sure to check the recommended PSI that’s found inside the driver’s door jam instead of the number found on the side of your tire. Or, just bring it to Germain Toyota of Columbus, and we’ll take care of it for you.

Balance and Alignment

Similar to how certain parts of your shoes wear depending on how you walk, certain parts of your tires can wear more quickly based on how your vehicle drives. The easiest and most effective way to prevent uneven wear is to have your tires balanced and aligned regularly.

Although the science and technology of tire manufacturing has advanced over the years, resulting in a reduced need to have these services performed more frequently, it’s not something you want to forget about. If you’d like to make sure your tires don’t have any necessary wear and tear, be sure to stop by Germain Toyota of Columbus for an inspection.
