I love almost anything that has wheels and burns fossil fuels, with the lone exception being my snow blower. Why? Because I’m a car enthusiast, and if I’m blowing snow that means I likely won’t be doing any spirited driving (well, maybe a few parking lot donuts). I’m an amateur racer and performance driving coach with the Porsche Club of America, and have worked with programs that teach teens advanced driving skills to make them better, safer drivers. All of which means that I love tires and understand that how they roll plays a big role in making sure we get home safely, whether it’s from a quick trip to the corner store, a weekend at the racetrack or a cross-country adventure. So come along for the ride, and I’ll give you my perspective on why tires are the most important performance and safety feature on your vehicle. And BTW, you may notice that I’m the only RightTurn.com blogger whose name doesn’t start with a J. I wonder if I should change my name from “Dan” to “Jan…”

Unfortunately, something is killing teens in record numbers in this country, yet few people are talking about it. Worse … Continue reading
