Philadelphia, PA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/29/2017 -- Gridiron Tire, a leading tire provider for the East Coast, advises drivers to be aware of the condition of their car before planning a long drive this summer. According to Pete D'Amelio of Gridiron Tire, making sure that a mechanic looks at a car and verifies that tires are in good condition sets drivers up for a safe, hassle-free trip.
"More people use their car in the summer compared to other seasons. Places they would usually walk to in the spring, like the grocery store or to the corner store, are now being driven to because of the heat," said D'Amelio.
He continued, "Aside from driving more for little things, many people travel in the summer time, and with the price of gas continuing to be cheaper than in the past, more people are comfortable driving instead of flying. Being on the road to your destination and blowing out a tire can not only dampen the whole trip, but could also cancel the vacation all together."
Gridiron Tire also warns motorists against traveling by car for vacation on a "donut" spare, which is intended to be a temporary fix until a brand-new, full-size tire can be installed. The general consensus is that the most anyone should drive on a donut is 70 miles. It is important that drivers do not put off getting a new tire installed on their car.
It is also important that drivers be aware of the condition of the remaining tires as well if they are forced to get a new one installed. Having one brand new tire and three worn tires will make the new tire degrade quicker. Gridiron Tire advises drivers to replace both of their front or back tires at the same time.
