Colder weather causing car troubles

Posted: Updated:

Tire shops across eastern Iowa say the drop in temperature may be the reason they are seeing a lot more flat tires and blowouts.

Jim Lind Service in Waterloo says the reason for this is colder temperatures cause the air pressure in your tires to drop. 

That's why it's important to check your tires before hitting the road, so you can avoid major problems while driving.

While you are checking your tires, the three things you should be looking for are: bald spots, cracks and whether the tire is low.

If it looks cracked or worn out, that's a problem. 

If you are still concerned about what you should be looking for, you can go to any shop in eastern Iowa.

Most check tires for free.
