It’s easy to overlook your tires, but now is a great time to check them for potential problems. Heat makes tires softer, which can lead to trouble at existing weak spots as the tire expands in warmer weather. Most tire pressure monitoring systems in late model cars don’t trigger until the pressure is 25% low, but by that time you’ve likely already experienced poor fuel economy and extra wear and tear on the tires. The sensors can also be damaged during tire changes, especially if they’re not performed by a trained technician. Drive smart—have your tires checked today!
