Check the Tires for Damage

Check the Tires for Damage


One task that is important to do is to check each tire over. You will want to make sure they are in the best condition possible for your vehicle. If a tire is worn or damaged, it may increase the chance of a breakdown, accident, or severe issue in the long run. You will want to check each one to ensure they are properly inflated, and are able to hold air for quite awhile. If you notice that a tire needs air frequently, it could be a sign of a leak somewhere on it.

Tread of the Tires

Also remember to check the tread of the tires. The tread will help you to grip the surface of the road as you drive. With poor tread, you will not be able to handle the vehicle as well as you otherwise could. Wet or slick roads are difficult to drive on, and the tread will help you to handle the vehicle on the road as you drive. You can take a penny and place it upside down in the groove of the tread. If you can see the top of Lincoln’s head, then the tread is too low. We can inspect the tires and the tread for you. Sometimes the tread wears unevenly, so a tire rotation can be beneficial.

You can also check the overall condition of the tires. The sidewalls of the tires should be free of bulges or other issues. If you hit a pothole, it can end up causing damage to the tires and sidewalls of them. If there is an issue, driving on it can increase the chance of it blowing. You should always make sure to take the time to check the tires regularly, especially if you hit a pothole or curb when driving.
