With the Fall upon us, the rains are coming soon. At Toole’s Garage in San Carlos and Valley Springs we recommend tire inspection before the wet weather arrives.
Tires are vital to your driving safety. With wet roads and less daylight, you want to make sure your vehicle’s tires are in good condition. At a minimum, we recommend following checks:
• Tire air pressure check (if your vehicle has tire pressure monitoring system – most vehicles do – it will alert you with this icon if tire air pressure drops)
• Inspect all tires for irregular wear patterns which could mean alignment problems
• Check for any visible tire problems – if your vehicle has bald tires, tire rot, cords/wire showing - it’s time for new tires
• Check tires for punctures, nails, or cuts
• Check tread depth
You can do these checks at home, but if you prefer to have professionals do the inspection, call our San Carlos or Valley Springs auto repair shops and we will be happy to make an appointment to check your tires.
