Tire Service FAQS
How much do truck tires cost?
The average price of a new tire for a semi-truck is around $500 each, though there are many factors that can influence this, and some new tires can be found for less than $200. Tire quality and ratings can vary wildly, so it’s crucial to consider the tire quality and any safety concerns when shopping for one or more new tires for your semi. Commercial trucks rely on their tires every second of every day so generally speaking, tires aren’t going to be the ideal place to look for the cheapest option at the expense of quality.
How do you service a tire?
How you service your tire is going to depend on what type of maintenance you need to do. The most common types of maintenance for truck tires are going to be regular rotation, alignment, consistent pressurization, practicing good driving habits, keeping the wheels and tires clean, and regularly inspecting wheels and tires for damage or signs of wear. The best service is proper maintenance since it will extend the practical life of the tire significantly, reducing expenses and time off the road for operators.
Can truck tires be repaired?
Tires for semis can only be repaired under certain circumstances. Federal regulations state that a commercial truck tire can only be repaired if it is a steer tire on the cab. This means that not only does the tire damage need to qualify as repairable, such as being in the tread and not the sidewall, but it also only applies to the front two tires on the rig. Additionally, the ruptures must be only on the crown area of the tire, and any patches needed must not overlap. Any other drive tires or load-bearing tires cannot legally be repaired and must simply be replaced.
What is the most important tire maintenance?
The most important tire maintenance you can perform for your rig is to keep your tires precisely inflated. Underinflation can cause the tires to build up excess heat, which is one of the biggest hazards for semi-tires and is one of the leading causes of emergency roadside service needs in the commercial trucking industry. Optimal tire pressure is vital to maintaining not only tire health but fuel efficiency as well since the added friction and reduced efficiency of under-inflated tires can cost thousands of dollars in fuel over the year.
How often should tires be replaced?
Tires on your rig should be replaced once they no longer meet minimum tread depth requirements or have other damage that reduces their performance or compromises their safety. Most semi-tires can be driven on for about 100,000 miles before needing to be replaced. This is also significantly affected by the maintenance and upkeep of the tires and truck overall, which can drastically shorten or lengthen the 100,000-mile average. For example, having under-inflated tires can reduce life expectancy by between 10% and 15%.
