And we don’t just mean by you kicking them. A road trip is gonna be a ton of wear and tear on your tires. Along with ensuring that you have a working spare on hand, you should at the very least be checking the air pressure. This is something that needs to be done before embarking on your trip as it is an excellent indicator of tire health. Tires that are underinflated are ticking time bombs in terms of driving safety. The last thing you want to happen on your road trip is a tire giving out on an unfamiliar road.
You should also have the tread of the tires inspected for wear issues. Whether commuting or road trip driving, you want your tires to grip the road. And while your car is in the shop being inspected, you might as well have them take a look at everything that matters. This includes undercar services such as alignment, exhaust, shocks and more.
