Time to check your tires, St. Louis!

October 25th, 2016 by

It’s that time of year: the cold winter months are rolling in, which means we all need to prepare for the snow-covered roads and long drives to work. The most important piece to preparing your car for the colder months is to check the status of your tires. First things first, check your tire tread. You can take a look at this handy visual below, which explains the differences between poor, moderate, and good tire tread.

If you’re not sure how to check your tire tread, we’ve also made a short video tutorial for you to watch. All you’ll need is a penny!

Lastly, the most impressive and helpful feature you’ll find when checking on the status of your tires in your Acura is the Tire Pressure Monitoring System. You can find the TPMS by scrolling through the menu on your dash, which will tell you the exact PSI of each of your tires. And of course, we’ve created a helpful video tutorial on how to check your Tire Pressure Monitoring System for you to watch!
