Some people are waiting as long as possible to defer maintenance on their cars. But…..

Please don’t forget to check your tires. Or better yet, have someone who can get it up on a lift check them for you. Inside wear may not be visible if the car is still on the ground, and it’s not the easiest way to look for any objects that might be in your tire. Tread depth should be measured as well as any wear pattern that is abnormal or any bulges. Tires must also be properly inflated to get the best gas mileage, tire life, and optimum safety. The psi will be listed on the manufacturer’s label on the drivers side door pillar. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendation for your tires psi.

We are getting calls weekly of people who have had a tire failure, or even witnessed a blow out on the freeway. Sure, things can happen unexpectedly, but that’s exactly what you are trying to prevent. We have seen a few tires that are at the wear bars and that is a sure sign that you are way overdue for new tires.

Get those tires inspected and replaced when necessary. This really is not an option. Well, other than not driving.
