Monitor the Health of Tires Closely for Safety…

Posted on by Defensive Driving Team | in Rules of the Road: Driving Tips

Should you notice while driving that your car is pulling to one direction or the other, that could mean that you have a low tire. This isn’t something that you should hesitate in checking into because driving on a tire that needs air can be extremely dangerous and result in a blown tire or even an accident. Even if you’ve done a visual check and it appears as if there’s enough air, looks can be deceiving.

For just a few dollars at the gas station, you can pick up a tire pressure gauge, which is a helpful tool that you should have on hand anyway. If you’re not sure what your tire pressure should be, you need to consult the owner’s manual as it will tell you the answer or inform you of where to find it. For example, on some cars, the recommended tire pressure is located on the inside of the driver’s side door.

Another thing to consider when you’re driving and it feels as if the tires aren’t getting a good grip on the road is that could be an indication that your tread is worn and it’s time for new tires. This is an investment that has the potential to be costly but it’s something that needs to be done and putting it off will only put you at risk. Finally, if your tires are properly inflated and they still have plenty of tread yet you still notice that something seems off, you need to see a mechanic because the problem could be something more serious than your tires.
