As temperatures continue to climb, you might want to keep a close eye on your tires.

AAA says it's extremely important to pay attention to your tires as the temperatures continue to rise.

AAA shows driving on under-inflated tires not only affects the handling and braking of a vehicle, it can also cause tires to overheat and blowout.

Tire experts say drivers should compare the pressure of their tires to the recommended number listed inside the driver's side door.

According to experts, if they don't match, air them up.

Experts also say drivers should check for bumps or bubbles on the tires, and make sure the tread isn't worn too low.
