Be careful when buying tires from unauthorized dealers because you just might be paying the price for new tires but getting illegally retreated/regroved tires! Although there are regroovable tires in the market intended for trucks and large vehicles, scammers are making lots of money by selling tires even for smaller vehicles.
Using these recycled tires might seem alright because they do look new and have grooves at the right places yet you put yourself and anyone in the vehicle in danger because these tires are actually worn out already and are thinner than the regular tires! Such could be very dangerous when you drive at high speeds in busy highways or even on bumpy roads. You could easily meet an accident that way!
Always make sure you are only using new tires when replacing your old ones. Do not go for retreated ones – even if they might be sold cheap by the scammers. You might be paying cheap for the retreaded tires but this could cost you your life in the long run! When it comes to keeping your vehicle in tip-top shape, it is always best to be safe than sorry…

Preventive Maintenance for Vehicles
In buying a car, you must understand that you just can’t sit and drive there forever without some form of maintenance done on the vehicle every now and then. In fact, it is very important to keep your car in tip-top shape to ensure that it runs properly. This ensures lower accident rates from problems like skidding off the road because of worn out tires or losing control of the vehicle because of faulty brakes.
Car owners are advised to read the manual that came with their vehicle.
These are some of the important things you should always check and keep in best shape:
- Oil and other fluids
- Spark plugs
- Engine air filter
- Cabin air filter
