Summer Tire Advice for Hot Roads

Noticed more tire remains on the side of the road lately? As the weather warms up, tires warm up with it, making them much more prone to damage, and ultimately, blowouts.

Summer Tire AdvicePrevent your tires from overheating and possibly popping by following these tips:

  • Be sure to check your tire inflation regularly, attempting to meet the specific standard listed in your owner’s manual.
  • Whenever you do tire inflation checks, wait until the car has cooled off for a few hours.
  • Check your tires monthly, or more frequently in the summer if you drive very often.
  • Monitor how the tire pressure seems to be changing over time; if one tire is much lower than the others every time you check, it may be punctured
  • Buy a good quality tire gauge to be sure you’re getting the right readings every time.
  • Lastly, always take your vehicle in for regular maintenance, and if something seems wrong with your tires, seek professional aid.
