Smart Warren County Iowa drivers plan ahead for a major road trip – and there are a lot of things to get ready. Where should you start? You could start with the tires. Look them over for tread wear and check to see that they are properly inflated. Check the spare tire too. What are the age of the tires? Tires older than 7 years have a higher risk of blowout failure due to the release of bonding agents they use to make the tire.
