Check your tire pressure

Underinflated tires are a major cause of tire-related crashes according to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration. They are dangerous because they overheat, which can lead to tread separation, says Dan Zielinski, senior vice president of the Rubber Manufacturer’s Association.

You should check your tire pressure once per month. Tires will naturally deflate over time, as well as after encountering potholes or striking curbs or when the weather turns cool. They lose 1 to 2 pounds of pressure for every 10-degree temperature drop, according to the Utah Safety Council.
