As part of this partnership, Giti engages with the organization and promotes positive relations relating to the industry and related sustainability and safety efforts, such as the organization’s Tire Safety Week – as well as other actions.

Safety is at the forefront of Giti Tire's focus - and encomposses all areas of tire research, development, testing, production and quality control.

As drivers begin getting back on the road after frequent vehicle downtime, now is the perfect time to get to a local auto care shop to check their vehicle and tires. During this period, there is a likelyhood that tire pressure or wear has been affected, and it may be the right time for a tire rotation or replacement. For specific reconmendations from Giti about tires on cars that have been parked for a long time, please see our article about the subject here.

Below are some tips from USTMA in regards to tire safety that it is focusing on this week. In addition, more can be found on the Giti Tire Knowledge page, as well as the company's Facebook and Instagram social media pages.

  • An under-inflated tire can lead to tire failure. Check inflation pressure at least once a month and before long road trips.
  • Tire inflation pressure changes depending on the weather. It can increase in warm weather and decrease in cool weather: 0.4 - 1kg (1-2 pounds) for every 10 degrees ferenheit of temperature change.
  • A vehicle’s Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) can help drivers detect loss of inflation pressure. Federal regulations require TPMS to warn drivers when tires are 25% under inflated. For many vehicles, this is too late to prevent damage to your tires and should not replace checking your tires monthly.
  • Have your alignment checked periodically as specified by the vehicle owner’s manual to ensure your tires do not wear unevenly or rapidly.
  • Always refer to your vehicle owner’s manual for rotation recommendations. If no rotation period is specified, tires should be rotated approximately every 8,000 – 12,000 kilometers (5,000 - 8,000 miles).
  • Worn-out tires are 3 times more likely to be involved in a crash than tires with sufficient tread depth, according to NHTSA.
