Construction Equipment: Take Time to Eyeball Tire Damage

Construction operations in rocky soil will cause serious wear-and-tear on your vehicle tire’s treads and sidewalls. That means getting down on hands and knees to take a close look for gouges, tears or slits in the tire’s surface before and after the day’s run. If you find anything serious, tell your mechanic.

And don’t forget tire inflation. Always use the pressure called for in your equipment’s -10 TM. It’s sometimes different than what’s stamped on the sidewall.
