Many people focus on their vehicles during the winter, dreading the inevitably snow and icy weather – but that damage can cause issues that spread all the way into spring and summer. Plus, spring showers offer prime conditions for hydroplaning.
Start your summer off right with these tire maintenance tips:
- Schedule a regular maintenance trip so that your entire vehicle gets a solid once-over from a professional.
- Make sure your tires are inflated properly, consulting the owner’s manual and avoiding both over- and under-inflation.
- Give yourself a moment on a straight road to evaluate if your car seems to be pulling to one side, which is probably a problem related to one or more of the tires.
- Not sure if your tires have enough tread? Learn the penny trick for peace of mind.
