You've heard it all before. Your tires are one of the most important parts of your car. After all, without tires, you're not going to get very far. But do you know you should take special care of your tires in the summertime?

"Checking your tires is crucial in the summer," Car Talk says. "Long road trips with humongous loads and high temperatures can stress your Goodyears to the max."

Just take the effect of summer's heat on your tires. As Car Talk explains, "Remember that tire pressure will increase as the outside air temperature rises. In fact, tire pressure will go up approximately one pound for every 10 degrees Fahrenheit. So, tires that were at 35 PSI back in January when you drove to the slopes could easily be closing in on 45 pounds on a hot July day at the beach. Under some conditions that increase in pressure is enough to blow the tire! If nothing else, a tire that's overinflated will wear prematurely and will cause the car to handle and brake poorly."

The effect is even bigger once you start driving because the friction between the tire and the road causes heat that, you guessed it, makes the tire pressure go up even more. That's the case whether you're headed to run with the bulls or going for a longer road trip.
