WSJ: Majority of teens say they don’t know how to change a tire

Filed under: Run-flats, Tires — Notch @ 11:48 am

The Wall Street Journal (subscription required) reports survey results indicating that the majority of teens do not know how to change a tire, let alone basic tire maintenance.

A new survey, released Tuesday, finds 52% of U.S. teens ranging from 15 to 17 years old don’t know how to replace a tire. A total of 44% don’t know how to examine the tire tread depth and 32% can’t figure out how to check tire pressure.

Notch Consulting published a report earlier this year that focused on the ongoing trend to eliminate the spare tire from many new cars, as well as the systems that will replace them. Information on this report, Prospects for Extended Mobility Systems: Run-Flat Tires, Tire Repair Kits & Self-Sealing Tires in OEM Passenger Car Markets, is available here.
