Subjects of the new videos – which feature Pat Keating, YTC’s senior manager of technical engineering, and actress Leslie Lank – are:
-- Choosing the Right Tire for Your SUV/CUV
-- Make Your Tires Last Longer
-- Why are Speed Ratings So Important?
-- On the Front or Rear?
-- Why You Should Rotate Your Tires
-- When is a Tire Repairable and When is it Not?

-- Summer vs. Winter vs. All-Season
According to Alan Holtschneider, YTC’s director of marketing, the Tire Tips series, which began in 2010, was created to increase consumer awareness and educate the public about a wide variety of tire-related subjects. “We designed the Tire Tips videos to be short and entertaining,” he said. “The idea is to really help consumers understand just how important tires actually are, especially since they are the only part of a vehicle to touch the road.”
