Proper inspection of each tire is important for when you travel, no matter the time of the year. When you drive, the tires are the only part that connects you to the surface of the road. You will want them to be in the best condition possible. Not only will an inspection ensure they are in good condition, it will help them to be efficient too.

When inspecting the tires, make sure to check the air pressure for each tire. If the tires are not at the proper amount for air pressure, there will be issues. When a tire is under inflated, they have a greater chance of blowing out. If a tire is over inflated then it will be more likely to pick up a sharp object. This can include anything from rocks to nails. You will also want to remember to check the spare tire of your vehicle. This is important because you will need the spare tire incase one of the tires is flat.
Also remember to have a tire in proper condition, you will want to check the tread wear. If the tread has worn down, you will notice poor handling for the vehicle. You can check the tread by using a penny. Place it upside down in the groove of the tread. If you can see the top of Lincoln’s head, then the tread has worn down. Make sure to have the tires properly aligned and rotated. Doing so will help keep the tread wearing properly.
