    Do you ever look at your tires before you drive away?

    Men might, women maybe, if you had a flat before.  Do you just turn the key and peel out?

    After the flat tire I and a friend had on a road trip, yes I do.  Especially if I am in an unfamiliar place.

    Sadly, I have to say no, and I know better!  I've had a flat on several occasions and even will think I should look at them before just jumping in and assuming things are gonna roll smoothly.  Lol, I guess I'm a "typical" woman driver!

    Your vehicle is a tool.........a modern day horse.....

    You need a good battery (hay) good shoes ( tires), oil pressure ( ability) and fuel........

    You just have to know........that you MUST maintain your ride.

    Yes, I look at my tires, my radiator, my cooling agents, my oil pressure, my fuel lines, my lights, my heater, my cooking system............

    Yes, I maintain my vehicle.

    Not only, do I want my auto to get me to work, I want her to get me home again.

    No. I glance.  I catch more problems by feel when I am driving.

    This is something I should probably do more often.

    I often do.  I look at them as I approach the car, especially when I have been parked in a high crime area like and underground suburban mall.  I have had nails put under my tires and got flats.

    Sometimes I will glance at some of my tires as some of my tires have been known to leak (and those are in the garage for the winter).
