Six Life-Saving Tips About Tires

Six Life-Saving Tips About Tires


05/17/2014

Tires aren't just treads we replace once every few years. They help us maneuver safely and avoid accidents; and the grip and security they provide is not to be taken lightly.

Each year, there are nearly 11,000 tire-related crashes, and nearly 200 people die each year from those crashes.

Quote:
And according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the federal agency that oversees vehicle safety and tire safety, many of these crashes can be avoided simply by understanding tire maintenance, understanding tire labels, keeping track of the age of your tires, and monitoring recalls.

It's a matter of educating yourself about tires, and making sure that your friends and loved ones know, too; and there are some pointers that might not seem intuitive but could go a long way toward assuring your safety.

You probably know that you should be checking your tire pressure often—at least once a month, preferably when you haven’t driven the vehicle in at least three hours.

Starting with that, and distilling what we see as some very important points from a new “TireWise” campaign from NHTSA, take a look at the infographic above, then click through to find six more potentially life-saving tips to keep in mind.
