Goodwrench Tire Safety Tips, Printable Coupon and Giveaway
With the latter days of August and September upon us there's still plenty of opportunity to take that last road trip of the summer. But are your tires in good shape?
Tire info you should know from Goodwrench:
- According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA,) 660 fatalities and 33,000 injuries occur every year due to tire-related problems.
- Keeping your family vehicle’s tires inflated to the recommended pounds per square inch (psi) will not only save on gas, but will provide a safer ride.
- It’s important to keep in mind that during the warm weather of summer, hot road surfaces can cause the pressure to increase in a tire. As a general rule, for every 10-degree rise in temperature, a tire’s pressure increases one psi.
- Invest in a quality tire gauge! Eyeballing tires to measure pressure can be misleading, as radial tires often look fine even if they are under-inflated.
-And by the way, be sure to rotate your tires on schedule. Since each tire performs different tasks (such as steering or front versus rear wheel drive), tires wear at different rates, and you’ll get more life out of the tires you bought this way.

The prize pack includes the official baseball cap that the Goodwrench technicians wear and tire-tread card that the technicians use. You put it in the treads of your tire and it indicated how much life is left in them. A handy thing to have, especially in these times when safety is as much a concern as getting the most life out of your tires!
