Before fishing season opener, now is a great time to inspect your vehicle and trailer that you will be towing. There are several parts and components that you will want to check on it. Doing so will help to ensure that the vehicle is ready for you to drive. The tires are an important part that you will need to inspect them regularly for your vehicle. Make sure that the tires are always inflated to the correct amount needed. You can find this in the vehicle owner’s manual, or we can advise you on it. Tires need to have the proper inflation, otherwise they are more prone to blowing out or picking up a nail.
