Last but not the least, are the wheels and with them, the tyres and the brakes. No matter how well maintained the rest of your car is, these components are the only things that connect you and your car to the road. So if either of these are in a bad mood, believe me, you are in trouble!
It’s good to start off by checking for the tyre wear. If the grooves don’t look too promising, get the tyres checked from an expert. In some cases, the grooves may look deep enough but considerable age on the rubber may lead to hairline cracks. These could meet a similar fate in the rains as the other cracks, dings and paint-cuts might. Moreover, such an old tyre will hardly offer any grip on the half-wet road conditions that a typical rainfall aftermath offers. Get your tyres checked and replaced if necessary to avoid any grip related mishaps.
