Is it time to replace the tires on your car? Insert an American penny into the tread. If you can’t cover the top of Honest Abe’s head inside the tread, it’s time to head for the tire store. Check tires regularly and you will avoid the danger and inconvenience of a flat tire on a busy road.
If you ever get a flat tire on your way to a fancy party or job interview, you’ll thank yourself for having the foresight to throw a pair of socks in the trunk. Slip the socks on your hands while handling the tire, and they’ll be clean when you arrive.
