How to Care for Your Tires This Spring

WESTLAND, Mich.,––It's Spring in Michigan, and that means the roads will be wet, messy, and full of potholes. Because your tires are what connect you to the road, they're pretty important and worthy of your routine care. There are a few easy things you can do this season to ensure your safety on the road, your car's efficiency, and help you avoid the pain of tire repair. Here's how to care for your tires this Spring:


How to Care for Your Tires This Spring


1. Inspect your tires tread wear

There are no special tools needed to inspect your tires wear. Your eyes will work just fine. Taking a look every few weeks or so for damage, cracking, under inflation, and uneven tread wear is the easiest way to tell if your tires need care! For an easy way to check tread wear, try the penny method! If by sticking your penny in upside down in your tire's tread you can see all of Abraham Lincoln's head, it's time to get new tires.



2. Check your tires air pressure

Checking your tires air pressure is typically done with a tire gauge which measures in PSI (pounds per square inch of air pressure). Having properly inflated tires can help you achieve good fuel economy and extend the life of your tires. If your tires are under inflated, your car will have to work harder to move which means you'll be spending more on gas. You can find the recommended tire pressure on the sticker on the inside of the driver's door, or in your Owner's Manual. As temperatures fluctuate throughout the year, the air outside can affect your tire's air pressure. It's best to check your tires in the morning at least once per month for the most accurate reading.


3. Have your tires balanced and rotated regularly


Another routine maintenance task to help you achieve best fuel economy and extended tire life is rotating them! This is a tire service that should be done every 5,000-7,000 miles or for most people about every other oil change. Tires can wear differently depending on their location, rotating them regularly will help cut down on uneven tread wear so they are all on the same page, so to speak. Having your tires balanced will also help to minimize uneven or premature wear.


4. Keep your car's load weight in mind


While your tires hold the entire weight of your vehicle, they can only hold a certain amount of excess weight. Excessive weight on or in your vehicle can lead to weaker tires and possible damage. We recommend not overloading past your vehicle's recommended rating to avoid potential tire blowouts. Although the chances for a blowout to happen are low, make sure to check your Owner's Manual to find the rating specific to your vehicle and keep your car's load weight in mind.



It's our goal to keep you safe on the road this Spring and provide you a great deal on tires! Follow our How to Care for Your Tires This Spring tips on this blog, and schedule your service appointment online at North Brothers Ford. We have plenty of coupons that you can clip online to help you save on vehicle service and new tire purchases!

Ford F-150 Scores Big In Dependability & Toughness

WESTLAND, Mich.––When you hear the name Ford, you might think of the slogan "Built Ford Tough". If you're a Ford truck owner, you'll know this slogan to be true, and there are many awards to prove it. The Ford F-150 scores big in dependability & toughness and has recently achieved a 2017 J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study award!

Ford F-150 Scores Big In Dependability & Toughness

The Vehicle Dependability Study is run by J.D. Power each year based on reports from original owners of 3-year-old vehicles.

"This study measures car reliability by analyzing problems experienced over the past 12 months of ownership in such areas as: features and controls; engine and transmission;entertainment and navigation; heating and cooling; the overall driving experience, and more."

The 2014 Ford F-150 scored a 3/5 in Powertrain Dependability, and 5/5 in Feature and Accessory Dependability, Body and Interior Dependability, and Overall Dependability. This large light-duty pickup truck was among competitors such as the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, Toyota Tundra, Ram 1500, Nissan Titan, and GMC Sierra 1500. 

The 2014 Ford F-150 comes available in three cab styles, 11 different trims, and four engine options, which means there's a F-150 for any need. Although this model year pickup doesn't hold a IIHS Safety Rating, it does hold ratings with NHTSA. The 2014 Ford F-150 (every cab style) received a 4/5 star rating in overall protection. 

Since 2014, the Ford F-150 has received upgrades in the body and styling, including the military-grade aluminum body, as well as in technology with SYNC 3, and more efficient engine options. In 2018 we'll be seeing a diesel option as well! The Ford F-150 has found success before and beyond the 2014 model year, which has scored big in dependability & toughness. We think you'll find it no surprise that the Ford F-150 is America's Best Selling Vehicle and has been for 40 years! 

We'd love to show you what the newest Ford F-150 has to offer you as well as the used models, too. We pride ourselves on finding the right vehicle for each buyers needs and budget. Take a look at our online inventory or stop by our dealership on Ford Road in Westland to start your search for a F-150.
