Are you tired of not knowing anything about your tires? Then it’s a good thing that Yokohama Tire Corporation has just release the second installment of Tire Tips.

A series of short educational videos designed to help consumers learn more about tires, Tire Tips has already covered the importance of properly inflated tires, and is now tackling the issue of how to read the sidewall of your tires. Hosted by off-road racing champion and TV commentator Cameron Steele, viewers will gain insights on keeping their vehicle running in tip-top shape by knowing the importance of tire maintenance and safety.

“Most consumers don’t fully understand what all the numbers and letters mean on a tire’s sidewall,” said Fred Koplin, Yokohama Tire director, marketing communications. “Cameron and Yokohama employee Paul Algarin explain everything in an entertaining way that’s easy to follow and understand. That’s the reason we are producing these videos: to teach consumers about all aspects of tires, including care and maintenance.”

The second video follows on the heels of Tire Safety Week, which took place June 6-12. Other videos to look forward to in the near future include ways to achieve better fuel efficiency and how to pick the right tire for your vehicle.
