All too often, drivers do not think about their tires until they experience a flat or a blowout. Unfortunately, driving on slick winter roads with tires that are excessively worn or improperly inflated can put you and your passengers in danger. To learn how to inspect and prepare your tires for the cold winter months, take a look at this video from Consumer Reports.
In addition to regularly inspecting your tires for excessive or uneven wear, one of the most important things you can do to make sure that your tires are in top shape for winter travel is to keep them properly inflated. When tire pressure is too high or low, it affects the way your vehicle handles and can even reduce your vehicle’s fuel efficiency.
