A vehicle’s tires are the one and only part of a car that actually touches the road. Tires have a big impact on a vehicle’s braking and handling. Needless to say, tires are an important safety device. Unfortunately, many drivers fail to inspect their tires adequately, which can lead to tire blow-outs, de-treads, and other failures, as well as serious personal injuries and even wrongful death.
Protect your family by inspecting your vehicles’ tires often. There are three main primary methods of inspection that should be used:
- Visually inspect the tires for cracking or cuts in the sidewalls.Also look for bulges or blisters.
- Run your hand over the tires to check for uneven tread-wear, feathering of the rubber, or loss of tread.
- Finally, check the air pressure in your tires to make sure the pressure is within the recommended range of PSI.Both over-inflation and under-inflation are dangerous conditions that can lead to tire failure.
