Test Tire Tread

Visually inspecting your tires regularly will help you keep a baseline of their wear and tear, helping you to notice any signs of damage. Inspecting your tires every time you get an oil change is an easy way to remember when to check in. A practical way check your tire tread depth is the “penny test”: insert a penny with Lincoln’s head upside down into one of your tire’s tread grooves — if you can see all of his head, then your tread is too low.

Check Your Tire Pressure

Air pressure is crucial to maintain optimal safety and performance, so refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual to ensure your tires are at the optimal PSI. When the temperature drops, your tire pressure is likely to fall as well — keep an eye out for air pressure alerts, and be sure to fill up your tires quickly should you see one.

Monitor Your Vehicle’s Weight

Your tires do more than just take you places — they also carry the weight of you, your passengers, and the entire weight of the car. Adding too much cargo to your vehicle may cause it to exceed the total load capacity, creating the potential for tire blowouts.

Monitor Your Speed

Driving fast works your tires hard, leaving them open to additional heat and potential damage. Rather than driving with a lead foot, give yourself enough time to arrive at your destination and drive within the speed limit.
