Potholes

If you haven’t noticed, besides the ice, snow and rain, make sure you notice the pot holes that seem to be everywhere. Not only are they irritating, but they can be dangerous. What may seem like just a nasty hole that you fell in; you may have just caused damage to your tires that may or may not be visible.  The damage can become worse as you drive and may not even be noticed until months later. The best advice—don’t hit the pot hole! If you do damage a tire it will need to be replaced. Also, don’t forget to have the wheel alignment checked as well. Even if you didn’t damage the tire, you may have knocked the wheel alignment out of the correct adjustment and this could also cause abnormal tire wear resulting in tire/tires replacement. So the next time you see the road crews filling those nasty pot holes don’t be mad because you had to wait in line to get around them, you should be thanking them!
