Rotate your tires

Angie's List auto service pros say not rotating your tires on time will dramatically decrease the life of your tire treads.

"If you don't rotate your tires and your tire treads are worn down, you could get stuck with a flat tire or worse, cause an accident," consumer expert Woroch says. "You can't put a price on the risk of injury in a car accident, but even without an accident, think of the extra cost of perhaps needing a tow truck, missing a flight or missing an important meeting for your job."

Not only should tires be rotated, Woroch says, but all drivers should keep a spare tire in their car and learn how to change it themselves for safety.
