Servicing Wheels And Tires In Trail, BC

You probably don’t think too much about the wheels or tires on your car once you get in the driver’s seat. These vehicle components require regular maintenance to ensure that you are driving safely and efficiently here in Trail, British Columbia.

Car tires should be properly inflated according to the manufacturer’s recommended PSI (pounds per square inch). Tires that are under- or overinflated can lose grip on the road or be more susceptible to punctures. Be sure to check the tires often for visible damage like cracks, tears, bulges, and excessive tread wear.

You may want to consider swapping out your all-season (everyday) tires for winter tires when the weather gets cold here in Trail, British Columbia. These tires are made with a specialized rubber and in a way that removes water and ice from the treads to maximize grip. Here in BC, a winter tire must have at least 3.5 mm of tread depth and be labeled with:

  • A three-peaked mountain symbol or a snowflake symbol (or a combination of the two).
  • The letters “M” and “S” that indicate “mud” and “snow/all-season.”

Similarly, the wheels that your tires cover are also quite important. If they become dented, the deformed metal or aluminum could damage the tires. It’s not very likely that you will need to replace the wheels entirely, but AM Ford to check them to be certain when you bring your car to our service center in Trail, BC.
