Many people take this important component for granted. Checking your spare for the above-mentioned points at the same time you check your other tires is just as important in the unfortunate event you get a flat tire.
Tires do wear out like anything else but keeping the proper amount of air in them can increase the amount of wear you can get out of them. Monitoring the air pressure and wear of your tires monthly can help to prevent accidents in bad weather and possibly even prevent a flat tire. It’s always prudent to get into the habit of a monthly tire check for proper tire care.
