A Tire Repair Kit

Your tires are the most important part of your vehicle, and they take the most damage typically. That’s why you should always carry a complete tire repair kit in your vehicle, even if you’re not an off-road adventurer. You should take time to learn how to use it – easy to do with YouTube and similar – and keep it in your trunk at all times.

If you need extra traction while off-roading, you can simply drop the air pressure of your tires temporarily. We don’t recommend you do it for longer than necessary, as rocks can cause damage to flatter tires far easier. Just lowering it for a moment, getting unstuck, and then pumping back up with a portable air compressor is a great strategy.
