CYPRESS, Calif. (May 26, 2016) — To mark the upcoming National Tire Safety Week, May 29-June 4, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. has posted four new videos in the Tires 101 section of its website.
The new videos address four tire safety topics: “How to Check Your Tire Pressure”; “How to Check Tire Tread Depth”; “How to Inspect Tire Wear” ; and “How to Read Your Tire Sidewall.”
National Tire Safety Week, promoted by the Rubber Manufacturers Association (RMA) and supported by industry partners, is designed to educate motorists about the importance of tire safety and maintenance.
In addition to the Toyo website, the videos can be viewed at YouTube.com/toyotires. More about National Tire Safety Week is available on the RMA's website.
Toyo is one of the thousands of tire manufacturers, tire dealers, independent repair shops and associations that support National Tire Safety Week, which is part of the RMA's ongoing “Be Tire Smart—Play Your P.A.R.T.” tire safety program.
The week-long event is designed to educate motorists about the importance of proper tire inflation and maintenance. Toyo quoted the RMA as saying that only 17 percent of motorists know how to check tire inflation properly.
