NEW YORK, June 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- America's Romance with the Road is back on - and cheap gas isn't the only reason! AAA says we drove a record 3.15 TRILLION miles last year. Road trips are the hot trend for vacations – popular with young families and all generations. Lauren Fix, The Car Coach, checked in with some tips on how to make your car, van, or camper road-ready for the summer.
"I like to remember THE FOUR C's – check, clean, carry and convenient."
The two of the most important things you can do before you hit the road is to check your tread and check your tire pressure.
Driving on under-inflated tires is the most common reason for tire failure. Check your air pressure when tires are 'cold' in the morning and compare that number to the sticker in your vehicle's doorjamb before hitting the road for holiday travel. Use a digital gauge and don't forget to check the air in your spare, too. A great all-season tire is the Pilot Sport A/S 3+, which delivers true all-season performance and superior wet and dry braking.
The Pilot Sport All-Season 3+ helps transform your ride. It is a new Ultra-High Performance tire from Michelin and it delivers all-season performance - so you don't need to change out your tires for winter. They come in 90 sizes and fit a wide range of vehicles, and start at $179 per tire…(not a lot for a high quality branded tire).
