Inflate the Tires

It's not technically part of a home inspection, but Carolla is quick to remind guys to check that their tires aren't losing air. "Check the inside of the door of your car, make sure that all four are the same," he advises. "Every single one of those Ford Explorer rollover deaths happened because of faulty tires you know, 15 years ago, because they weren't properly inflated."

Carolla is a gearhead – he has a collection of Paul Newman's vintage racecars – and a stickler for this sort of stuff. He compares driving on deflated tires to trying to bike on them, it's a bad idea and a waste of energy.
