At times, the wheels of your vehicle may be the last thing on your mind when you get into your car. First, you want it to start. Then, you make sure you have enough fuel to get to your destination, whether it be work or school, or heading out on a road trip. Once you're headed down the road, the activities that will take place once you arrive at your destination probably take over your thoughts. However, it is critical that you add tire service to the list of things to check before pulling out of your driveway.

There are three main problems that will require professional tire service:

1. Under/Over Inflation. Some of the things that can be affected by the inflation pressure of tires are comfortable driving, the life of the tire, and braking and traction. Under inflation could cause overheating of the rubber, less resistance to rolling, premature wear and tear of the tread, plus damage to the wheel. Over inflation results in the same kind of problems, reducing the life of your tires.

Check out the three critical tire service issues before heading down the road, inflation pressure, driving conditions. It may be time to buy new tires!

If your tire repair technician is recommending new tires, then you should probably go ahead and get them. There are times when tire repair simply doesn't make a tire safe. It doesn't matter if you just got the tires and they get a hole torn into them by the asphalt. Many people believe that getting a tire repair will fix it completely, and you don't have to worry about it anymore. Unfortunately, that is not the case.

When considering whether a tire repair is enough, or whether you should purchase new tires, the first consideration should be based on how quickly you recognized a problem and how fast you responded to it before any further damage was incurred, such as to the wheel rims or suspension system.

Drivers must be aware that tire repair is not always the best choice. If the puncture is fairly large or too deep, then you should probably buy new tires
