Summer has arrived and it has brought the heat. Temperatures are scorching your body, and you will need a cold drink in your hand to get through the day. The summer weather can wear you out.
Experts concur that hot summer weather has a huge effect on tires. The heat is causing the air inside your tires to move quickly, increasing pressure. Meanwhile, the roadways you're driving are hotter than ever.
Drivers should also pay extra close attention to the inflation pressure in their tires. Under-inflated tires are always risky, but they're even more so during summertime. Such tire conditions can spoil your journey so in order to avoid this situation you should check the condition of your tires.
You may help avoid a emergency tire repair by checking the air pressure every week. To look at the tread, use the penny test. The tread should cover the top of Abe's head. If your wheels are worn, or you detect persistent issues with stress, then you need to immediately schedule a tire service.
