General Tire Safety Tips
Once a month, inspect your tires for patterns of uneven wear which could damage the tires.
Once a month, and before every long trip, check tire inflation pressure. Look at the tire placard or owner’s manual to see the maximum weight your vehicle can carry - DO NOT OVERLOAD YOUR VEHICLE.
Develop good driving habits such as observing speed limits; avoiding fast stops, starts, and turns; avoiding potholes and objects; and avoiding contact with curbs when driving or parking.
Keep your vehicle well maintained. Rotate the tires regularly, get your wheels balanced, and have the front-end aligned when necessary.
Check the vehicle manufacturer's recommendation before replacing a tire with a different size and/or construction.
Be aware that when the outside temperature drops 10 degrees, the pressure in your tires drops about one or two pounds per square inch. If you find that one of your tires is losing pressure, take it to an expert for a complete internal inspection. If a puncture is one-quarter inch or less and confined to the tread, it can be safely repaired.

One of the most important safety features any vehicle can have is a good set of tires.
Tires play a vital role in vehicle performance, handling and safety. Your tires carry the full weight of your vehicle, while at the same time providing all of the grip for acceleration, steering and braking.
The importance of good tires is often overlooked or taken for granted. Tire faults are noted in half of all fatal crashes where vehicle defects are a contributing factor.
Good tires will hold your vehicle securely on the road, allowing it to stop, start and maneuver safely. Worn out, incorrectly inflated or unsuitable tires may not.
Your tires must be in good condition, properly maintained and appropriate for your vehicle.
