Inflation Pressure

1
Check tire pressure. Set the inflation pressure using an inflation calculator. If a tire is 20% below its recommended PSI, it needs to be replaced.

Wear

2
Inspect the tread and shoulder for irregular wear or flat spots. Stubble damage or exposed cords may call for a replacement.

Tread Depths

3
Be on the lookout for mismatched tread depths. Tire pairs should be within 10 PSIs of one another. Be sure to use an accurate gauge.

SIDEWALL

4
Look at the sidewall to make sure it hasn’t been degraded by oil leaks or any foreign objects stuck between the duals. Wash and wipe off any fuel, oil or grease.

CRACKS AND CUTS

5
Check for cracks, growing cuts, snags or splits.

BULGES

6
Look for bulges or separations from the belt or the beads.

VALVE STEMS

7
Inspect your valve stems for cracks, corrosion or dirt. Avoid loose or damaged valve stems and replace missing valve caps.

contact areas

8
Check contact areas. Make sure you don’t see any space between the lugs and the ground.

WHEELS AND RIMS

9
Look for rust and corrosion or any damage to the flange. Missing or broken lug nuts, studs and welds should be repaired. Properly tighten all replacements.

Penetrations

10
Check for foreign objects such as nails or screws that may have penetrated any part of your tires.
