Tire Safety

7th July 2008

Tires. Most of us never think much about them, unless something goes wrong. We know that we should check the air pressure, making sure they are properly inflated and we know that tires without much tread (“bald”) are dangerous and should be replaced. Some of us even know the trick of putting a penny in the tread with Lincoln’s head down to check how much tread we really have.

But, did you know that tires can go bad sitting on the tire store shelf? A “new” tire that has never been used can go bad like last week’s milk. This is very likely nothing to worry about for the vast majority of tires, especially on a new car or truck. However, it doesn’t hurt to make yourself aware. And it might hurt to not be.

Watch the clip from ABC News for the full story. Probably over sensationalized, but worth watching:
