You've been making the most of the hot summer weather with road trips away and outings that are close to home. Tonight, you're headed to the French Quarter for some music.
But before you go too far, you should check your tires. Auto.howstuffworks.com points out that "tires are one of the most overlooked parts of a car."
The site adds, "According the Rubber Manufacturers Association, only one out of 10 drivers checks his or her tire pressure correctly, compared with almost seven out of 10 who wash their cars regularly .... But the truth is that an under-inflated, over-inflated, worn down or misaligned tire can be extremely dangerous, particularly in hot summer weather."
That's because tire pressure changes with the temperatures. As auto.howstuffworks.com points out: "An under-inflated tire bulges outward and puts undo pressure on the sidewalls of the tire. With enough heat and pressure, that tire eventually will blow. An over-inflated tire, on the other hand, makes less contact with the road and can lead to hydroplaning in wet conditions."
You should also check your tread. And, you should have a New Orleans auto care pro make sure your tires are properly balanced and aligned.
