How do I know I need Tire Replacement?
There are several signs that it might be time to replace your tires. As your only contact with the road it’s important to look after them and always be vigilant when things aren’t right.
Vehicle pulls to one side
This can suggest an underinflated or worn tire on one side; though it can also indicate a problem with your brakes and wheel alignment.
Vibration / thumping
Can be caused by an unbalanced tire possibly with a flat spot or a separated belt.
Low tread depth
The US Department of Transportation recommends a minimum of 2/32 of an inch tire depth when measured in a major tread groove. This is best measured around the central circumference of the tire.
Cuts and tears in the sidewall or bulges are all indications that you need to replace your tires sooner rather than later.
AAA testing has shown that tires with only half of their tread depth can take up 6 feet longer to stop from 40 miles-per-hour on a wet surface, even with the antilock braking system engaged.
The AAA recommends these maintenance tips to extend the life of your tires:
• Recognize Noises/Vibrations – If you notice any new and unusual noises or vibrations (especially after hitting a pothole), your tires should be inspected asap.
• Alignment – Vehicles rarely stay perfectly aligned, potholes, bumps and sidewalks can all cause misalignment, which leads to instability and irregular tire wear.
• Rotation – A four-wheel tire rotation is recommended by most tire manufacturers after every 6,000 miles. Rotating tires every other oil change is an easy way to keep track of this service.
• Inspection – Check your tire pressure at least once per month, Check the tires for cracking, bulges, slices and bubbles. Don’t ignore any damage to your tires, if you think they may be worn get them checked out. Many good tire shops will inspect your tires for free, and only replace them if it’s necessary to do so.
