Tires Mississauga, ONClosely examine the sidewalls and keep an eye out for bulges, cracking (some cracking due to age is normal), scrapes and gouges. The sidewalls' material is pretty tough and can stand up to curb scrapes, but use your own judgment as to what might be signs of more serious damage. You’ll know.
