There are many ways to ensure your safety while driving. One of the easiest ways is to use good tires and maintain the tire tread and pressure. Tire tread is how much wear is left in the tire, while tire pressure is the amount of air that’s inside the tire. Both of these things are extremely important. Here are some tips on maintaining tire tread and pressure.

Inspect your tires regularly for both wear and pressure. This is especially important at the end of a season like summer or winter. Cold temperatures and hot temperatures can be hard on a tire and can affect air pressure. Look for patterns of wear on your tires, and be sure to rotate them every 5,000 to 6,000 miles to prevent uneven wear and tear.

Make sure your vehicle is properly aligned because a vehicle not in alignment can cause the tires to wear out prematurely. When adding air to the tires, use the amount recommended in the owner’s manual or listed on the sticker on the side of the door.
