When is it time to replace your tires? You’ll want to partner with your auto repair experts to get the most out of your tires. If you properly care for your tires, not only will you get better gas mileage, but you’ll be able to get many more months and miles out of them before having to invest in a new set. Take a look at the photo below to see signs of a problem before it gets any worse.
Here are some tips on what to look for and how to get the most out of them:
Get in the habit of looking for wear and tear on your tires. The more you know your tires, the easier it will be to identify a problem. Regularly check the air pressure in your tires and when you do that, take that time to give the rest of your tire a once over.
Inspect the tire tread depth and wear. Use a penny to help you assess the depth. If you can’t see Lincoln’s head because it’s well nestled into a deep tread, you’re good to go. If it’s completely exposed, the depth isn’t where it needs to be and can now be dangerous to be on the roads. It’s time for new tires.
Inspect the outside of the tires too. You’ll want to check for bubbling, cupping, or any bulges in the outer walls. If you see any of this, don’t drive on them until you’ve replaced these tires because it’s now dangerous to drive. The last you want is to experience a blowout! Yikes!
While you’re down there in the treads, check around for any foreign object stuck in the tread or even the sidewalls. It may not yet be deflating your tire, but if you can catch that early, you are far less likely to be stuck anywhere due to a flat tire. Get it fixed ASAP!
