That's why we want to talk about your tires. Your vehicle's tires are some of the hardest working components of your car. That's why it's imperative to keep an eye on their health. Like many parts, your tires will wear out over time. Ensuring your tires wear evenly is simple with a few at-home tricks. 

Tire pressure is an essential part of your tire's health. Your tire pressure fluctuates as the weather changes. This fluctuation can cause your tires to have the wrong tire pressure, resulting in less gas mileage, more engine exertion, and increased risk of damage. To make sure your tires are correctly inflated, get a tire pressure gauge, and regularly check your tire pressure. You can consult your Honda owner's manual to find the right pressure levels for your vehicle. 

Another critical area on your tires is your tire tread. Your treads are the ridges and grooves found on your tires. Your treads help you grip the road, and when they're too worn, you increase the risk of an accident. To check if your treads are healthy, place a penny head down into the tread. If you can see the top of Lincoln's head, you need to replace your tires.
