Spring is a good time for drivers in the Metairie-New Orleans area to remember to do a bit of tire maintenance.
One of the biggest rites of spring for the state as a whole and the Metairie-New Orleans area in particular is the Louisiana Derby. A lot of people will be headed to the Fairgrounds tomorrow to see the race, one of the preps for the Kentucky Derby. But that’s just one of the rites of spring. Another is – or should be – checking out your tires to see how they weathered the winter and to make sure they’re ready for spring and summer fun.
"Routine tire maintenance will not only help you get the most out of them, but can also keep you safe while on the road,” says insurer Esurance.
Esurance recommends you check at least three items as part of your tire maintenance routine: tread, alignment and inflation. The company also recommends you use the time to rotate your tires.
