Tired tires 

The acronym stands for the organization’s four key elements of tire care:

—Pressure: Check air pressure, as under-inflation is the leading cause of wear and tear of tires.

—Alignment: Misalignment of wheels in the front or rear can cause uneven and rapid tread wear.

—Rotation: Regularly rotating your vehicle’s tires will help you achieve more uniform wear.

—Tread: Advanced and unusual wear can reduce the ability of tread to grip the road in adverse conditions.

AAA seconds the advice. “This summer, AAA anticipates it will come to the rescue of 1.2 million stranded motorists with tire-related issues. Many of these can be avoided by taking a few minutes once a month to ensure tires are properly inflated,” said Kathleen Marvaso, AAA vice president for public affairs. —Gazette staff
