Even if you never leave New Orleans, tire care is an important part of making sure you're safe on the road.
It's that time of the year again - Tales of the Cocktail. It's New Orleans' great celebration of all things grain and grape. And, of course, you know not to drink and drive. Even if you don't, you need to take care because of people who do both.
You also need to take care of your car to make sure you can get where you're going. And one of the most important chores is taking care of your tires.
"Proper tire maintenance is an important safety function often neglected," tire manufacturer Bridgestone says. "The importance of properly maintaining your tires cannot be overemphasized. Remember, tires are the only contact between your vehicle and the road."
Bridgestone adds, "Under inflation is the leading cause of tire failure. ... a tire can be as much as 50 percent under inflated before it is visibly noticeable. Not only are under inflated tires more prone to damage and failure, but they can lead to higher fuel costs by as much as 3 to 5¢ per gallon."
If eyeballing your tires doesn't work, that means you need to check the inflation yourself, or have someone else do it.
