Check tires before driving
The first thing to check are the tires. They are the most important part of your vehicle because they are the only part that makes contact to the surface of the road when you drive. The tires should have the air pressure checked to ensure they are properly inflated. Summer and extreme heat can do damage to the tires if you do not inspect them properly. They can get dry rot, especially if the vehicle sits for long lengths of time without moving. If you are not sure of the condition the tires are in, make sure to call us and we can set up an appointment to have them inspected.

If you notice an issue with them, they should be replaced immediately. This will help to improve your visibility when you are driving down the road.
