"Testing your battery and checking your tires. Those are the two things that if you wait until it's too late, you could find yourself in a really inconvenient and possibly unsafe situation," says Jarmusz.
Jarmusz also says it's safer to have a professional look at your battery, but you can easily check your tires using a quarter.
"Grabbing President Washington by his neck and sticking him head first into the treads of your tires. If you can see the top of his head, then that means there's not enough tread depth left on your tires," Jarmusz explained.
