When it comes to motorcycles, tire maintenance is essential. It doesn't take a lot of time or effort to inspect a motorcycle's tires and there are many rewards in doing so. Regular inspections can extend the life of your tires, saving you money because you won't have to buy as often. It can also help save money on fuel and can help your bike achieve top performance.


Here are some tips that can help keep motorcycle tires performing in top condition.

  • Check for proper tire inflation pressure. For peak performance and fuel economy, it's important that the tires are not over-inflated or under-inflated. Repeated under-inflation should be inspected because it could signal a slow leak that could cause a blow out. Air Pressure Guidelines
  • Don't overload your bike. Overloading puts stress on the tires and can cause poor handling and excessive fuel consumption. Check your owner's manual to determine weight limits.
  • Look for wear. Get in the habit of getting professional inspections to be sure the tires are in the best condition possible. Pay attention to tread wear indicators and keep an eye out for foreign objects, cracks or grooves that would require replacement.
  • Break in new tires. Brand new tires should be ridden very cautiously for the first 100 miles to allow the tires to be "scuffed-in." This provides the rider with an opportunity to get to know how the new tires handle and react.

Stay safe on the road!
