Take Care Of Your Tires. After All, They'd Do The Same For You If They Were Sentient And Had Opposable Thumbs

-Driving around this great land of ours, many things can get stuck in the treads of your tires: Rocks, gaudily oversized diamond pinkie rings(if you're driving through a New Jersey bog), and bits of possum carcass, to name just a few. Resist the urge to collect debris in your treads. Removing these objects will decrease your rolling resistance and increase your MPG.

-Wildly fluctuating temperatures from one day to the next may be the harbinger of the coming apocalypse, or maybe the weather's fine and your outdoor thermometer is broken. We just don't know. However, we do know that it's a good idea to check the pressure in your tires after a sudden change in temperature. Improperly inflated tires can decrease your car's fuel efficiency and lower the life expectancy of your tires.

- Contrary to popular belief, Mongol warriors in the 13th century did not drive around in cars, pillaging and looting. In fact, they rode horses. However,if they did drive cars, you can be certain that they would regularly check for uneven wear patterns and flat spots on their tires. You should too. Mongol warriors also wreaked terror and the mass extermination of anyone opposing them. You should not do this, however.
