Did you know that summer weather can be harder on a car than winter weather? Car tires, for instance, must be properly maintained in order to avoid tire failure this summer. To learn more about how to protect your car so that it runs efficiently before the dog days of summer arrive, watch this video clip.
First, you should make sure that your tires are safe by inserting a penny into the grooves of each tire. If you see Lincoln’s head, then the tire is worn out and needs to be replaced. You should also check the tire pressure at least once per month using a digital tire gauge. Compare the readings with the tire pressure recommendations found inside your car’s owner’s manual. If you need more air, visit your local car repair shop. Watch the video for more information about summer car and tire care.
