There are a lot of factors that go into how your tires wear down. Driving style, road conditions, tire pressure, your car, and time. Most people don’t think about it, but a car that sits idle in a spot, often for years, without moving can cause the tires to deform. Having the tire sit idle for an extended period creates a flat spot that can cause problems on its own. The types of surface you drive on can impact the life of your tires as well. Rough abrasive terrain can cause your tires to wear faster than a smooth paved road. If you drive making a lot of turns, your tires on the outside of the typical turns you make will wear more quickly than the inside tires of those turns.
Tire pressure is one of those factors that has a big enough impact on the performance and life of your tire that it gets its own category. An under-inflated tire will have the surface of your tire bow inwards. The bowing causes the outsides of your tire to wear faster than the inside. Under-inflated tires also are at a higher risk of blowing out because of the increased friction caused by under-inflation. Overinflation is also a big problem. When your tire is overinflated, the tire becomes more rounded, causing the center of the tread area to become raised, putting excess strain on your car and wearing down the middle faster.

- I have been taking all my cars to Kranz for over a decade. Tom Kranz is a straight shooter – he has talked me out of repairs that would have made him money but not be in my best interest. The work I have had done ranges from simple oil changes to things like replacing a timing belt, new clutch, brakes, etc.
- I TOTALLY trust Tom and his expert staff with my car!
