Many car owners assume that winter is the time when they have to be mindful of tyre maintenance.

Pierre Granzotto of Michelin confirms the importance of watching out for the car tyres during summer because of the scorching heat and high humidity which can be taxing for the car and its various components.

It is important to check the treads every now and then because they tend to wear away and diminish effectiveness. Use a penny with the head side down and insert it on the grooves. If you can still see the top of Abraham Lincoln’s head, it is time to buy a replacement. However, another option is to rotate the front and back tyres.
