A waste tire is a tire which is no longer usable for its original intended purpose because of wear, damage, or defect or a tire which has been discarded or disposed of by its owner.

Extend the Life of Your Tires
  • Check the air pressure in your tires at least once a month.
  • Regularly check the tread depth of your tires.
  • Rotate your tires every 6,000 miles as a rule of thumb.
  • Practice good driving habits. Observe speed limits, steer clear of potholes and debris on the road.
  • Finally, be alert to changes in vehicle handling, and look for uneven wear on your tires.
