Kick the tire of a car they’re looking to buy? Does it mean something significant that I’m unaware of? I don’t really need an answer but feel free to add your own

"Kick the tires"


Etymology
Early 20th century. Tires on early automobiles were made of thin rubber and were sometimes of poor quality, hence a prospective buyer might kick them to see how thick they were or if they would deflate.

This is probably a good way to go about this. I’m onboard.

 

If a Mexican calls you Wey just know it’s not always an endearing phrase. Kick him in his nuts.

Why do Asians HAVE FINGERS?

1. To recover from their Hennessy/Nottyhead hangover

2. For biological cellular repair after 16 hours of winning.

3 To hold and operate graphing calculators

To make sure the tires don't fall off like the car just traded in will do as soon as it's driven.

It's literally a saying when looking at cars, like "is he a buyer, or just kicking tires?". It's just like guys that drive 18 wheelers, they have a tire bat, it's a way of telling how much air is in the tire. It's not going to tell you of your tire is 5lbs low but when hit with the bat a tire that is really low makes a different sound and bounce.
