Safety First

Parents always ask me, "What tire is the safest? Michelin, Goodyear, or some other brand?" That depends on what you’re going to do with it. But there are no safe tires, only safe drivers. You could equip your car with the stickiest racing slicks known to NASCAR, but sometimes, those guys still end up on their roof!

So please make "safe" your responsibility as a licensed driver.

On a lighter note, I'll be vacationing in Ontario this summer and I'll be driving. The American love affair with the automobile is alive and well.  Until then, I'll leave you with these quips to lighten up your tire research.
