Make Sure to Check Your Tires Before Hitting the Road

We have listed five tips below for keeping your tires safe:

  • Check the air pressure monthly when the tires are cold (before they’ve been driven more than a couple of miles). Read the label on the inside of the driver’s door, inside the glove compartment or fuel-filler door that specifies the proper amount of air in the tires for your specific vehicle. Do not go by the number printed on the tire.
  • Look for cracks, cuts or bulges in the sidewall or tread. Replace any tires that are damaged this way.
  • Check for uneven wear on your tires–this is typically a sign that your tires are not properly aligned. Be sure to have your vehicle’s alignment and suspension checked before mounting new tires to prevent them from wearing prematurely.
  • Stay within the vehicle’s weight capacity provided on the label typically located inside the driver’s door. Overloading may cause the tires to fail.
  • If you live in a rainy or snowy area, consider replacing tires before they reach the legal minimum tread depth of 2/32 of an inch.
