Top three tire safety tips include:
· Check inflation pressure. Everything is under pressure these days, including tires. Use a tire gauge to check inflation pressure at least once a month. Don’t forget to check the spare tire too. Proper inflation can save you money at the gas pump!
· Inspect the tread depth of your tires. You can easily check the tread depth by putting a penny upside down with Lincoln’s head facing you in the grooves of your tires – if you can still see all of Lincoln’s head, it’s time to get a new tire.
· Check the overall condition of your tires. Damaged tires can shorten tire life and cause tire failure or air loss. Check your tires for cracks, bulges, and for any foreign objects regularly and before any long trip.
