Tire Tips For Teens

Address The Basics Of Car Maintenance With Your Teen

Ideally, your teen driver would graduate driver’s education knowing everything there is to know about cars. Unfortunately, that is not the case and car maintenance is often overlooked. To help your teen driver start learning to care for his or her vehicle, use these tire care tips together.

  • Proper Pressure: If car tires are overinflated or underinflated, they will not have as much traction as they should. This poses a serious danger, since those four tires are your teen’s only point of connection with the road! Pull out the owner’s manual together to find out the proper psi, then go together to fill up the tires when needed.
  • True Tread: Without tread, your tires lose functionality. Teach your teen to regularly check that his or her tires have enough tread depth by inserting a penny into the tread. If the top of the tread cannot reach the top of Lincoln’s head, it is time for new tires.
  • Spare Swap: Knowing how to change a tire is a huge asset to a teen driver. Take the time to practice swapping a tire for a spare together.

Another thing to teach your teen driver is the importance of auto insurance. For all of your car coverage needs in Menifee, Murrieta, and the rest of Southern California, contact Carver Insurance Services.
