Stay Safer By Checking Your Tires

We're all looking for ways to stay safer on the road. While some things are hard to control, such as other driver's habits and abilities, other things are pretty simple. For instance, maintaining your tires is fairly straightforward. And once you get into a few habits, you can always be sure that your tires are safe to drive on.

Maintaining proper tire pressure is one of the best ways to ensure that your tires are safe. When they're too inflated, your vehicle's weight is only on part of the tire, and this means that you're not getting as much traction. To make sure that your tires are at the proper pressure, check the manufacturer's recommendations.

Having enough tread is important, too. When tires are bald, you're more likely to slip. One of the easiest ways to check tire tread is to put a penny in the tread with Abe's face upside down. If you can see most of his face, you should have your tires checked by a mechanic.
