Spring is almost here and with the warmer temps coming our way, we want to let you know how much the increased heat can affect your tires. Heat happens to be your tire’s worst enemy and the hotter the tire gets, the risk of failure gets high. It is to be noted that hot weather always impacts tires more than the cold weather and this is because tires usually build pressure, which causes overheating and eventually tire blowouts are experienced. Car owners are usually advised to be aware of how heat waves may affect their tires because no matter how safe and careful you are when driving, excess heat can easily cause old or worn out tires to fail. Consider avoiding the following when driving this Spring;

Every car owner knows that eventually they will be required to rotate their tires, however most are not sure when exactly this needs to be done.

These should be checked by hand constantly or have a tire professional do it for you.
