  • Inspect tires for uneven wear patterns on the tread, cracks, foreign objects, or other signs of wear or trauma.
  • Remove bits of glass and foreign objects wedged in the tread.
  • Make sure your tire valves have valve caps.
  • Check tire pressure before going on a long trip.
  • Do not overload your vehicle. Check the Tire Information and Loading Label.
