T.I.R.E. Safety - An Easy to Follow Guideline
5 minutes of your time each month can insure the safety of your family and friends Check your tires (including the spare) each month using these guidelines
Tread Depth & Wear: A simple way to determine whether you need tires is the quarter test. Insert a quarter upside down into your tire's tread. If the tread of your tire does not touch George Washington's head, it's time to have your tires replaced.
Inflation: Check the air pressure monthly and before taking any long trips. Poor inflation can cause premature wear, increased fuel consumption and tire failure.
Rotation: Your tires should be rotated every 3,000-5,000 miles. When done consistently, this helps maintain proper traction and gives you the maximum tread life.
Eye Check Daily: Inspect your tires daily for penetrations, bulges, cracks, and abnormal wear. Don't forget to check the tire edges for damage caused by misalignment or under-inflation.
