Keeping your car on the road this Memorial Day weekend could be as basic as making sure your tires are ready for the trip.
Walt Brinker with Roadsidesurvival.com was a guest on WNPV’s AM Edition Friday. He says 75 percent of car problems are tire related.
“Blowouts or they lost their tread or they just have a regular old flat tire. Three quarters of cars coming to a stop are tires. The remaining 25 percent of a combination of running out of gas, the engine overheats, the engine cuts off and will not restart due to a minor electrical issue.”
Brinker says, he’s helped more than 2,000 drivers over the years and he urges people to simply listen to their car for potential problems to avoid a breakdown.
