National Tire Safety Week

National Tire Safety Week

May 28– June 3 is National Tire Safety Week, the U.S. Department of Transportation and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is reminding drivers that proper tire maintenance is essential for safety and for reducing the cost of vehicle ownership.   1.
