Heat and your tires

Posted on June 27, 2011 at 11:08 PM
Temperatures over a hundred degrees can be deadly out on the roads, if your car is not maintained properly.
According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, 3,400 people were killed and more than 116,000 injured in tire related accidents throughout the country, in the last five years.
When tires are rotating at 70-miles an hour, experts say the heat  really builds up, and can cause a blow out, especially if you are driving on old or under-inflated tires.
If you take a look at any road around here, you'll find tire scraps from blowouts.
Tires are built to take extreme temperatures, but experts say these continuous 100-plus degree summer days take their toll.
Over time as the rubber dries out, they're not built to continue to withstand it.
Tires have a good three to four years before they  begin to lose  their effectiveness
That means paying close attention to trailers and cars that don't get used much. 
Check them regularly for cracks and dryness, and the date on the side to make sure they're not too old.
Tire pressure is also an issue.  When ever the heat rises in the air so does your tire pressure in your tires,.
Keep on eye on it when you fill up the tank.
The proper inflation will be on the information label inside driver's door of your car
Make sure you keep a good check before you hit the read. It will make that trip a much safer one..

It is important to maintain the exact pressure of the tires. When the air gets overfilled it results bursting of tires.
