PRE-TRIP INSPECTION

THE IMPORTANCE OF TIRE AND WHEEL INSPECTION

Pre-trip inspections increase safety and maximize uptime. Not to mention they are a regulatory requirement. Make sure you own a calibrated air gauge, then follow the steps below. We've also created two videos to help get you started.

THE SIX STEPS OF PRE-TRIP INSPECTION:
  1. Check your tires for proper inflation. If a tire is 20% below its targeted PSI, it is considered flat and should be replaced. Also, dual tires should be within 10 PSIs of each other.
  2. Check your valve caps to make sure they are properly secured.
  3. Look for tread wear and check proper tread depth. To learn the fundamentals of tire wear, watch this video.
  4. Check for tire cuts or bulges in the sidewall.
  5. Check wheel and lug nut conditions. Make sure there is no rust or bends.
  6. Inspect suspension components.
