Once you’ve got your new tires installed on your diesel truck, you’ll want to keep them in good shape. Tires aren’t difficult to maintain, and maintaining them correctly will dramatically increase their longevity. Inspection and maintenance are the two key components to making sure they last.
It’s essential you keep an eye on your tires, and what condition they’re in. Watch out for uneven tread patterns, and if you notice anything unusual, refer to the list of possible causes above. You’ll also want to check any issues that may be caused by curbs, debris, or other hazards of the road. Make sure the tread and sidewall rubber isn’t damaged or compromised, and check for bolts and screws that might be stuck in the tread. The earlier you catch a potential issue, the easier it will be to correct it.
There isn’t a lot of tire maintenance you’ll need to do, but keeping up with it is the determining factor in how long your tires will last. Check the air pressure regularly; if one or more of your tires are over or underinflated, it’ll cause them to wear quickly and unevenly. Make sure you have them rotated at scheduled intervals as well. Different vehicles have different patterns and intervals for tire rotation, but the shop or your manual will have the info you need. Rotations allow tires to wear consistently and evenly, keeping them on the road and in good shape.
