Nothing is more important to your safety and your car’s ability to get from Point A to Point B, than having safe tires designed to protect you and others on the road. So how do you know if your tires are safe or if they’re ready to be replaced? And how do you increase the tire’s life? Many tires will last 60,000 miles and beyond if properly cared for. Tires are expensive, with an average set of four new tires costing about $400. But nothing is worth the cost of an accident, your health or your life. Discover some simple and practical ways to check your tires’ tread wear. Did you know all states have legal limits on when a tire’s tread has reached the point of not only being unsafe, but when it actually violates the letter of the law? Don’t put you or your family’s life on the line. Don’t miss Travel Tips brought to you by Sunoco Fueling Centers and APlus Convenience Stores and Stripes, and learn how to check your tires’ tread, along with how to inflate your tires properly and safely.
