Are your tires safe? Let Jerry's Transmission Service, Inc help check.

In an attempt to boost performance, tire manufacturers analyze the capabilities of their tires under a variety of road conditions and speeds to ensure the safety and durability of their tires. These tests are conducted on all factory-made tires whether they are intended for rain, snow, off-road, performance or fuel conservation. Among the many tests done on new tires is stopping distance. Stopping distance is the span of road that it takes for a vehicle to come to a complete stop.  Here at Jerry's Transmission Service, Inc in Lester Prairie, MN we carry top tire brands and test your tire safety continuously.

Several factors determine the stopping distance of a tire. These include the materials and construction of the tire, its tread patterns and the vehicle on which it's mounted. That's why it is so important to choose the right tire for your car, van or truck. Fortunately, Jerry's Transmission Service, Inc can help you determine which tires are best suited for your vehicle, and your day to day driving demands.

KEYS TO T.I.R.E SAFETY

It takes 5 minutes every month to properly check your tires (including the spare) to ensure the safety of your family and friends.

Tread Depth & Wear:  A simple way to determine whether you need tires is the quarter test. Insert a quarter upside down into your tire's tread. If the tread of your tire does not touch George Washington's head, it's time to have your tires replaced.

5/32" or greater depth - Your tires are in good condition and do not need to be replaced.

4/32" Depth:  Your tires should be monitored and you may notice a decline in wet weather performance.

3/32" Depth:  Monitor your tires closely and replace them soon to ensure your vehicle is road ready, safe, and dependable.

2/32" Depth or less:  You need tires now.  Driving is unsafe with tires in this condition and should be replaced right away.

Tire Check

Inflation:  Check the air pressure monthly and before taking any long trips.  Poor inflation can cause premature wear, increased fuel consumption and tire failure.

Rotation:  Your tires should be rotated every 3,000-5,000 miles.  When done consistently, this helps maintain proper traction and gives you the maximum tread life.

Eye Check Daily:  Inspect your tires daily for penetrations, bulges, cracks, and abnormal wear.  Don't forget to check the tire edges for damage caused by misalignment or under-inflation.
