Your Tires Could Be Deadly!

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is looking into the cases of expired tires that could potentially cause deadly traffic accidents.

We’re accustomed to reading labels on many of the products that we purchase these days like food and perishable items, but most of us never even think about the age of our tires. Even if you are a car enthusiast and consider yourself knowledgeable about the care and maintenance of your vehicle, a visual inspection of the tread and a second opinion from your mechanic are what you rely on to make a decision about when to replace your tires.

Spoiler alert! Your tires may be expired. NHTSA requires that tire manufacturers stamp the date of production on the sidewall of every tire retailed in the U.S.. The average consumer has no idea that the date is there and some rubber company’s suggest that its unneccessary.
