Tire Care Basics Checklist

Do you regularly check on your tires? What you know and how often you do tire care has a direct impact on your tire’s performance, safety, and lifespan.

It’s important that you remember the ff:


  • Checking tire pressure monthly


  • Rotating tires as recommended by the vehicle manufacturer


  • Inspect for signs of uneven tread wear or damage


Do these regularly and you’ll get the longest life from your tires.

Inflate your tires

Improper tire inflation will result in irregular wear causing significant internal damage that can possibly lead to tire failure.

Tires lose 1 pound per square inch (PSI) of tire pressure every month under normal conditions.

For an accurate reading, check your inflation pressure using a tire gauge when tires are cold.

Step 1: Remove Tire Valve Cap
Step 2: Place the end of the tire gauge over the valve.
Step 3: Press the tire gauge straight and firmly until the scale extends
Step 4: If needed, increase pressure and recheck with the tire gauge.
Step 5: Replace the valve cap.

Inflate your tires according to its recommended tire pressure posted in the Tire and Loading Information sticker on the driver’s side door jamb or in your vehicle owner’s manual.

Rotate your tires

If your tires are out of alignment, it will lead to uneven wear resulting in early tire replacement.
So for even tread wear and longer tire life, you should rotate your tires.

How often should you do it?
We recommend rotating your tires every 5,000 to 7,000 miles.

Find the nearest Bridgestone service center and allow us to help you. Our team is well trained to carry out professional tire rotations.


Evaluate your tires

Make sure your tires are safe by inspecting their tread depth.

Your tire’s tread depth will give you an idea if your tires have enough traction to grip the road.

If you’re having a hard time looking for the Tread Wear Indicator, the simplest way to check the tread’s depth is the peso test:

Checking on the condition of your tires is important too.

Look for any damages that would warrant a replacement. Make sure there are no cuts, punctures, cracks, or bulges on your tires’ sidewalls.

If you spot any of these, head over to the nearest Bridgestone tire center and have a service professional take a closer look.
