Do you pick out stones that are stuck in your tire treads?

Something my Dad told me to do eons ago, still do...

Driving across a gravel drive will load you up again.

If there were a good reason to do so it might be worth the time. Those stones won't hurt anything and eventually they will get thrown out but again re-enter the next gravel road you travel. When I have my tires off or raised so I can rotate them I pick the stones out so I can look for possible nails, screws, etc.

Had not thought about this. This could be serious. Need to go check my tires.

Me too. Might just be a retired thing.

I don't go out on a mission to rid my tires of stones, but while I'm tinkering, if I see them I'll pop them out.

When my folks drove the Al-Can to AK in 1978, Dad plucked sharp stones from the treads twice each day. The constant barage of sharp stones allowed some to start to work their way into the rubber. It was very true, at the time. Many flats for the unaware back then.

Get the speed up to 100+ mph and they'll throw out.....(somewhere...).

I can sure believe it.

While I don't think picking stones out of our tires is a big deal normally, IMHO, anything that gets us to spend a little time looking at our tires can't be a bad thing.

I picked up a triangular rock on the Cassiars Hwy and three days later after leaving Prince Ruppert it worked its way through and flattened the tire :(. Wish I would have been looking for that one.
