Tires

Your Vehicle’s Tires

This is a reminder for you to keep close tabs on your tires. You need to check and insure they’re inflated to the proper pressure (you’ll find what psi is recommended on the sidewall of the tire).

Although this topic was covered in a previous post, I failed to mention the fact that you need to rotate your tires on a regular basis (at least once a year, if your drive an average of fifteen thousand miles a year.

VERY IMPORTANT – insure that you treated the sidewalls every time you wash your car to keep them from drying out and dry rotting! You can use any number of commercial products (armor all, black magic, etc.). Now here’s something you can use for treatment that I had not heard of until yesterday from a neighbor – Glade furniture polish! It keeps them from drying out and adds a nice shine to them.

Well, that’s it for today – see you next time!

  2. Good tips. My tires don't need rotating at the moment, but I'll be sure to keep an eye on that.
