Fleet Maintenance: Extend the Life of Your Vehicles Tires/Is Fleet Maintenance Software Right For Your Municipality?

As a commercial enterprise, tires are the lifeline of your fleet. If you are constantly spending money out of pocket to replace and repair tires, this can quickly eat into your profits. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to protect and extend the life of your vehicles’ tires. Learn more about this process and consider whether you should invest in fleet management software for your business. 

How to Extend the Life of Vehicle Tires

By using basic maintenance skills you can get more life out of your tires. Start by keeping the tire pressure at a proper inflation level. Do a monthly check of the pressure of every tire. You should do this when the tires are cold, such as first thing in the morning before the vehicles have left the shop. Keep in mind that the tire pressure recommendations will vary depending on the weather. Read your owner’s manual to see what pressure you should use at the current season. 

When driving avoid broken pavement, potholes, and obvious objects laying on the road. Take care to avoid grinding the tires on curves and squealing tires when you take off down the road. It might sound like common sense, but in reality these easy adjustments can add a lot of mileage to your tires. 

Choosing Fleet Maintenance Software

When working for a municipality you may have more stringent requirements about your tires. This can include the amount of maintenance and process for repair work. One way to ensure your entire fleet is up to par on the maintenance and repairs for tires is to choose fleet maintenance software.

Using a computerized system allows you to track mileage and accidents, as well as frequency of repairs for your fleet’s tires. You can more easily identify any systematic issues, such as using a certain tire brand or running a particular route, that are causing your fleet to spend more on tires. From there you can make fleet-wide changes that can also help extend the life of your tires.
