The video also includes animation that explains pinch shock, which causes a bulge to appear on the sidewall of the tire after striking a pothole, curb or road hazard.

Tire Safety Starts with Winter Tires

  • Winter Tire Replacement is another consumer and industry educational video that covers three specific areas:

• The differences between all-season and winter tires.

Tire Safety Starts with Proper Tire Repair

  • Tire Safety Starts with Proper Tire Repair places a camera inside the tire so drivers can see what happens to the tread each time the tire makes a revolution. After multiple revolutions, the tire runs over a nail and viewers get a slow-motion replay of what it looks like inside a tire when a nail pokes through the innerliner.
