Make sure the bottom of your wheels are flat when they touch the surface. I've seen drivers run the bars to firm and causes un-even tire wear. I can post a few simple directions for you and your dad if you like or try it yourself first.

Tye stretch the caps where they almost touch the rims if you don't they'll come off on your first run like my old ones did.
