Are traveling on the roads this holiday weekend?

Then now is a good time to check your tires.

This week is National Tire Safety Week and its important to make sure your tires are in good shape.

Under-inflated tires reduce your vehicle's fuel economy. They can often increase the risk for flat tires, blowouts or loss of tread.

Keeping your tires properly inflated can save you up to 9 cents per gallon on gasoline.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recommends that motorists check tire pressure and inspect for wear and tear at least once a month.
