What Causes Tires to Wear Unevenly?

Row of tires

Your Honda vehicle’s tires are what moves you forward, drives you back, helps you get in and out of tight spaces, and everything in between. So, it’s important to keep an eye on your tire tread wear. While tread wear is expected, your tires can actually wear down unevenly, causing problems as you drive around Sharon. To say on top of your tires’ care and health, learn what causes tires to wear unevenly with the service center at Shenango Honda!

Why Is Tire Tread Wear Important?

As you drive around Hubbard, your tires’ traction grips the roads and helps you control your vehicle. This is especially important if you encounter less-than-ideal road conditions like snow, gravel, or worse. If your tires wear down unevenly, then you won’t have as much control on the road. That’s because only parts of your tire will grip the road while other parts won’t have contact with the road. 

So, what causes tires to wear uenvenly? We’ve laid out two main causes of uneven tire tread wear below.

Improper Tire Inflation

If your Honda feels slightly unstable as you drive around Mercer, then this could be due to your tires not having the right amount of air pressure in them. During cold weather, air will usually contract, so your tires’ air pressure levels will lower. During warmer weather, air expands, so your tires’ air pressure levels will usually increase. This expanding and contrasting can lead to certain parts of your tires not having traction with the ground, which then can lead to uneven tire tread wear. 

Because of this, you’ll want to make sure that your tires are properly inflated. You can usually have your tires filled with air at most gas stations or other public places. You can also get the proper tools to check your tires, like a tire pressure gauge, from our parts store at Shenango Honda. 

Misaligned Tires

When your tires aren’t correctly aligned, then they can’t properly support other systems of your care, like steering, bearing, and other joints. Because of this, it’s easier for issues to occur when you hit a pot hole or large bump on the Hermitage roads. Other issues that this can lead to is uneven tire tread wear. 

To avoid this, simply have your wheels regularly aligned. If you don’t know if your Honda needs its wheels aligned, then schedule service with Shenango Honda.
