PRE-TRIP INSPECTION

EVERY HAUL STARTS WITH YOUR TIRES

A mandatory step before taking out the next load should be your pre-trip inspection, which increases safety and improves uptime. (Also, pre-trip inspections are a regulatory requirement.) Make sure you own a calibrated air gauge, then follow the steps below.

THE PRE-TRIP INSPECTION IN SIX EASY STEPS:

  1. Check your tires for proper inflation. If a tire is 20% below its targeted PSI, it is considered flat and should be replaced. Also, dual tires should be within 10 PSIs of each other.
  2. Check your valve caps to make sure they are properly secured.
  3. Look for tread wear and check proper tread depth. Click here to learn more about irregular wear patterns.
  4. Check for tire cuts or bulges in the sidewall.
  5. Check wheel and lug nut conditions. Make sure there is no rust or bends.
  6. Inspect suspension components.
