Check Those Tires!

Those underinflated tires could kill you.

A new government study warns as many as one in 20 crashes could be linked to tire-related problems.

The reports by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found that underinflated tires were the biggest problem.

A tire 25% below its rated pressure was found to be three times more likely to be involved in a crash.

Underinflated tires reduce a vehicle's stability and make it more difficult for a driver to maintain control during unexpected events.
