5 tips to avoid flat tires

Most people know they should check their tire pressure regularly. But how many people actually do it? In the spirit of keeping an eye on your air, we’ve put together this list of 5 quick tips to help you pay a little TLC to your PSI.

Don’t forget to keep an eye on your tires throughout the rest of the year too! A change of just 10 degrees can adjust the pressure in your tires by 1 psi.

Here’s another tip for avoiding flats – try a run-flat tire like the Continental ContiSportContact 5P. Run-flat tires let you keep driving even if you get a flat, usually for about 50 miles at 50 mph. That’s enough time for you to get safely to a tire shop to get your tire fixed.

Drive safe!
