How to Maintain Tire Safety Amid COVID-19 Pandemic

05.05.2020

Livonia, MICH. (May 5, 2020) –  COVID-19 has upended daily life, affecting work and school schedules, sports and how we interact with one another.

While this situation is unique, it should not affect how vehicles should be cared for. With travel decreasing, cars across the country are sitting idle in driveways and garages. This can lead to expensive, preventative problems.

 

When vehicles remain idle for long periods of time, the tires will begin to deflate. The tires will lose air pressure unevenly, which can lead to bent rims. 

 

 

To prevent expensive repairs, drive the vehicle one to two blocks a couple of times per week to ensure the tires remain properly inflated. 

 

Users can also check tire pressure by using the ATEQ VT56, VT36 or branded VT46 tools. Simply scan the TPMS sensor to view all sensor information, including the tire pressure.
