Partners in Business tip: Driving habits and tire life

Updated Jul 7, 2021

Hard braking, rapid acceleration, curbing and tight turns cause tires to wear faster. Many of the problems caused by bad driving habits show up as uneven tire wear. If you notice shimmying or repetitive bumping, inspect your tires. Even absent those symptoms, look for irregular tread wear in your daily inspections.

The Partners in Business program is produced by Overdrive and the consultants at ATBS, the nation’s largest owner-operator business services firm. The program is sponsored by TBS Factoring Service.
