Individuals tend to neglect their tires because they do not regularly come into direct contact with them. Tires, like all other parts of an automobile, require routine maintenance to ensure a safe and comfortable ride for drivers and their passengers. Unfortunately, even well-maintained tires may be subject to defects and other hazards that make them unsafe.
If you or someone you love suffered injuries after a tire defect cause you to get into an accident, you may have grounds for filing a legal claim. Contact the Milwaukee auto defect lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 800-242-2874.
Many individuals can take care of their tires by themselves with little effort. There are two main things that individuals should test on a regular basis: tire pressure and tread wear.
Testing tire pressure requires a tire gauge. These gauges are available at most auto part stores usually for less than $5. An automobile’s recommended tire pressure will be listed in its owner’s manual.
Testing tread can be a bit trickier. It requires the use of a penny. Individuals should turn the penny so that Abraham Lincoln’s head faces toward the tread. Individuals should then stick the penny between two treads. If the tread does not cover Lincoln’s head, it is time for new tires.
In addition to these DIY procedures, individuals should also get routine tire rotations, usually every 6000 miles.
While maintaining your tires can help you avoid an unpleasant accident, some tires are more prone to blowouts that may cause you to get into an accident.
