It's time to take your tire safety knowledge on the road

Are you road-trip ready? Many Americans aren't.

Fifty-three percent of drivers don’t know how to check their tires' tread wear to determine if they show signs of damage and need to be replaced. That's according to a recent survey by the U.S. Tire Manufacturer's Association in partnership with Discount Tire and Ipsos. And the same survey reveals that 48 percent of drivers don't know how to check their tire pressures.
