Everything You Need To Know About Tires: Proper Tire Care & Maintenance - Part #4

The final episode of the Tires 101 series goes through total care and maintenance to keep you safe during your travels. Most people don't know or even bother checking their tires until it's too late. Although it might seem like there are a lot of things to check over, it really takes less than 5 minutes to do an all-around check on your tires. Tires do have a shelf life whether you're driving on them or not. The rubber could dry out and begin to crack which is just as bad as hitting a curb and damaging the sidewall of your tire. Whether you're driving a car, truck, or motorcycle, your vehicle's tires are what keep you on the road at all times. But many times it's the last thing you think about when you are about to hop in, if at all. 

Here's what you'll learn in this episode: 

  • How, why, and when do you need to check the air pressure in your tires? 
  • What is a TPMS system and how to check it?
  • What to look for when your tires are under-inflated and over-inflated. 
  • How does alignment affect tire wear and an old myth that you might have heard? 
  • How do tire blowouts happen, and what do look for to avoid a disastrous accident?
