T is for Tires

Before heading out on a car camping adventure, be sure your tires are up for the trip. At a minimum, you should have:
  • Decent tires on all four wheels
  • Decent spare (preferably full size)
  • Tools to change a tire (and the know how to do so!)
  • Tire repair kit (and the know how to use it)
  • Tire pump
Also, check your tires periodically for uneven wear, especially when traveling unfamiliar rough roads – you can easily knock a wheel out of alignment and wear the edge of a tire bald (ask me about Durango, CO).

These Amazon affiliate links are to the exact items I bought, chosen based on customer reviews/ratings. Fortunately, we didn't have a need for either on our trip but they now live in my car and I sure feel better being prepared for a flat!
