Tips On Trips
To keep your next road trip rolling along, the nonprofit Car Care Council recommends a quick tire check before you leave. First, check that all tires, even the spare, are inflated to recommended levels. Next, check tire tread depth with a penny. If you see Lincoln’s head above the tread, it’s time for new tires. Check for uneven wear and check for cuts, bruises, bulges, bald spots or other irregularities. For more on car safety and maintenance, get a free “Car Care Guide” at car-care--dot--org.
