"National Tire Safety Week is an opportunity for the tire industry to focus its collective efforts to educate motorists about the importance of proper tire care," said RMA Senior Vice President Dan Zielinski. "Regular tire maintenance is critical to optimizing tire fuel efficiency, maximizing tire tread life and promoting a safer driving experience."
