In the wake of Tyre Safety Month, with damp mornings becoming normal, you'll see where a car's been parked overnight. As shown here.
Those four small damp squares show you sum total of how your car keeps you connected to Mother Earth while you're driving. Your whole two-tonne weight, moving at up to 100 km/h, relies on that tiny area for grip. That's nearly 2 kg every square centimetre. A lot of pressure, figuratively and literally, on some small bits of rubber.
So be kind to them (no kerbing or dry-steering). After all, they're your "feet", and you wouldn't want worn or damaged shoes to make you slip over, would you ?!
