10 tips for tire safety

Tire care is essential for many reasons, but the most important of them is safety. When you are driving, they are the part of your car that is constantly in touch with the road, and you need to rely on them regardless of the road conditions.

On DealOnTires, we want to remind you checking your tires on a regular basis is an important step in protecting your safety and your automotive investment. Ideally, tire inspections should be performed monthly. If you drive over potholes and debris in the road, live in a cold climate, or drive long distances regularly, then you should inspect your tires more often.

Caring for your tires regularly will help you save money. Getting regular tire rotations and alignments can extend the life of your tires so they’ll wear evenly. In fact, even something as simple as making sure your tires are inflated properly can save you money on gas!

Today on DealOnTires we want to share with you these tips that will help to keep your tires in good shape and your travels safe:

1. Choose your tires carefully

Many drivers buy a tire based on initial price or appearance. Tire selection should be based on the correct size recommended for the vehicle and its load recommendations. Remember to consult a professional to select the proper tire for your driving patterns.

2. Tire Gauge

An essential tool! You can find them at any automotive retailer or supply store. This device will keep you informed about the pressure of your tires at any time.

 3. Tire pressure

Underinflation is a tire’s No. 1 enemy, because it can cause damage that may lead to tire failure. Always check the pressure of your tires when they are cool or cold. Driving heats up tires, making readings incorrect.

4. During wet weather/raining season, slow down

As your speed decreases, the tire footprint (the amount of the tire’s tread contacting the road surface) increases, providing better traction.

5. Rotate your tires

You can rotate your tires every 6,000 miles. If your tires show uneven wear, ask your automotive service professional to check for and correct any misalignment, imbalance or other mechanical problem involved before rotation.

6. Tire balance

Check your tire balance periodically to avoid irregular wear

7. Vehicle alignment

Check your vehicle alignment periodically. It’s especially important to have an automotive professional check your alignment if you notice your vehicle is pulling to one side when you’re driving.

8. Check your tire tread

It’s an easy DIY task, you can do this yourself by placing a penny in the tread groove and if you can see the top of Lincoln’s head, then it is time to replace your tires.

9. Sidewalls

Check the tire sidewalls to make sure there are no gouges, cuts, bulges or other irregularities.

10. Avoid overloading your vehicle

An overloaded vehicle puts stress on tires that can cause damage and lead to tire failure. Check the manufacturer’s load recommendation to know your load limitations.


If you can’t remember when you last checked your tires, now would be the right time to start. It’s important to inspect your tires regularly or have a professional do it for you.
