Pothole repair and avoidance tips
Tires should be inspected for both sufficient tread and proper inflation.
To check the tread depth, insert a nickel into the tread groove with Jefferson's head upside down. The tread should cover part of Jefferson's head. If it doesn't, then it's time to start shopping for new tires. When checking tire pressures, ensure they are inflated to the vehicle manufacturer's recommended levels. This number can be found in the owner's manual or on a sticker on the driver's door jamb.
