Check your tires

Friends:

If you missed this TV program, be sure to click on the link below:

This is a very important video from ABC News that all should take the time to
watch. This is probably the most important thing you can learn about how
the age of so called 'new' ti res can affect the performance of the tires. A
definite 'must know'.

I recommend that you consider passing this on to all your friends and family.
It's that important.

That's crazy. I wonder if they will truly ever admit and make a shelf/service lift on tires and stick with it.
