Taking the time to ensure that your car is in optimal shape will significantly reduce your chances of an accident. As this video explains, you should check your tires on a regular basis to ensure that they are fully inflated and that they have not become too worn. To extend your tires’ lifespan, you should be sure to have them rotated as frequently as your owner’s manual recommends.
