The wheels on the car go round and round

All through the town

The wheels keep going round and round until the treads get tired — and driving on worn down tires or improperly inflated tires is dangerous.

Daniel E. Young, an instructor in Milwaukee Area Technical College’s Automotive Maintenance program, can help you make sure your tires — the only part of your car that actually touches the road — remain round and rolling.

Young is featured in “Pro Tip,” an MATC how-to series in which the college’s expert instructors explain simple yet important life tasks, helping viewers increase their knowledge and perhaps consider taking courses at MATC.

In the video, Young explains how to determine if tires are properly inflated, how to assess proper tread depth, and how to be alert for potential warning signs that your tires have issues.

Tire care is the latest subject covered in the how-to series. In the first installment, How to Carve a Turkey,” released in November, Culinary Arts instructor Bryan Quinn demonstrated how to carve and present a Thanksgiving turkey that would dazzle family and friends.

In the second episode, Photography instructor Darin Dubinsky explained how to take better photos.
