Why Proper Tire Tread and Pressure Are Important For Safety

If you want your vehicle's tires to perform at their optimum levels of safety, it's important to understand why maintaining proper tire pressure and tread are necessary. Here are a few tips about tire maintenance that Donley Ford of Galion Inc. would like all of our customers to be aware of for increased safety on the roads:
(1) Know the proper tire pressure level recommended by your vehicle manufacturer. Use a tire pressure gage to ensure that your tires are not underinflated or overinflated. Either condition increases tire wear and reduces your gas mileage.

(2) Insert an Abe Lincoln penny upside down into the treads of your tires. If you can see the entire head, it's time to head to our Donley Ford of Galion Inc. service department for new tires that can really hug the road, especially in stormy weather.

(3) Ask our experienced technicians for help if you're unsure about tire tread and pressure.
