After scouring the web for authoritative information on tires, we created TireTrend to tie it all together.
Look, we aren’t scientists, and don’t have advanced degrees in rubber compounds and friction. We are two Dads who geeked out on tires after not being able to find accurate information. So our informed – but not expert – opinion is this: far too many of us take tires for granted, either by ignoring them or by trusting the wrong “commonly accepted” knowledge. However, if you are carrying anything close to precious cargo (like us), take time to learn more about tire health and care for them similarly as you would for the cargo in your vehicle, because the two are more related than many of us ever know.
Remember, when in doubt, consult a professional!
