3 Routine Tire Checks to Keep You Off the Side of The Road

0 Comments 26 October 2015

Changing your tire on the side the road is one of the most dangerous things you can do.  About 4,000 people each year are killed changing a tire. To prevent yourself from being stranded on the side of the road, here are 3 routine tire checks to keep you off the side of the highway:

Tire Punctures: Check your tires for punctures. If you come across any punctures be sure to replace the affected tire with a spare as soon as possible, because it is never safe to drive on a damaged tire.

Damaged Sidewalls: The sidewall is the side of the tire. The sidewall of your tire can be damaged when you hit curbs or any other objects for that matter. If your sidewall is damaged, this can affect tire pressure. If your sidewall is damaged, please have your tire checked immediately.

Aging: Even though your tire might not show damage or wear, it is important to know when your tires lifespan is up.  Have your vehicle’s tires checked despite the lack of visible damage. Most tire manufacturers recommend changing your tires every ten years no matter what the condition of your tires is.

In the event you find yourself with a flat tire on the side of the road, do not try to change it. Leave it to the professionals. Call Charity Towing and Recovery at 602.242.7489, or fill our convenient contact form.
