WARREN COUNTY, OH -- Tire Discounters, the country’s largest 100% family-owned and operated tire and service provider, is proud to partner with the U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association (USTMA) for National Tire Safety Week, June 24-July 3, 2024.

National Tire Safety Week (NTSW) is an annual initiative that aims to educate drivers about the easy, yet essential steps for proper tire care, use and maintenance to ensure road safety.

The USTMA points out that today’s tires are made to perform better than ever before, yet improperly maintained tires can put drivers at risk. Worn-out tires are three times more likely to be involved in a crash than tires with sufficient tread depth.

The car care experts at Tire Discounters and USTMA recommend drivers play their PART:

  • Check tire Pressure monthly,
  • Schedule an Alignment every six months
  • Rotate tires regularly
  • Have a professional check Tread depth

“The road safety of our customers is the top priority at Tire Discounters every day, and National Tire Safety Week highlights that,” said Charles Curlee, Chief Operating Officer, Tire Discounters. “We are the home of free alignment, and we also invite drivers to come in anytime for free tire pressure and tread depth checks. All these services are free of charge, and you don’t even need an appointment.”

Tire safety also translates into savings. Routine tire maintenance saves customers money by maintaining optimum performance and tire life. The U.S. Department of Energy reports that keeping car tires at recommended pressure levels can improve gas mileage by up to 3%. In addition, The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that properly inflating tires can save up to 11 cents per gallon on gas.
