A flat tire is bad enough. Experiencing a blowout on the road, however, could prove fatal. Keep this in mind when thinking about car care. Knowing when your tires are due for replacing could cut down the chances of running into dire tire troubles.

Checking the tread depth on tires reflects the most common tire care step to take. With a Lincoln penny, a driver can get an idea about remaining depth. If you see the top of Abe's head, the treads are low. That means the tires aren't likely to deliver decent traction.

Visibly examine all four tires for any problems manifesting. Bulges and blisters are not signs of a tire that will last. And cracked sidewalls are just as bad. Those tires are unsafe, too. Get them replaced with newer, better quality ones.
