Five Important Signs You Need New Tires

 

Signs You Need New Tires

Too often, the signs of wear and tear on your tires can go unnoticed. Over-worn or bald tires are a major safety risk, and could cause you to lose control of your car at any time, but especially in wet weather. Don’t wait until it’s too late. Replace your tires as soon as you notice any of the following five signs that you need new tires.

  1. Low tread depth. Make sure that your tires’ treads never fall below 1/16-inch in depth. In fact, if you often drive in wet or slick conditions, it’s recommended your tires maintain twice that depth. Check out the old penny trick to quickly and easily see if your tires pass the test.
  2. Tread wear indicator bar. It doesn’t get much easier than this. New tires feature tread wear indicator bars that are built right into the tires. When you begin to see flat rubber bars appear that run perpendicular to the direction of the tread, it’s time to replace those tires.
  3. Sidewall cracks or bulges. Even if your tire’s tread seems to be fine, but you notice cracks or bulges in the sidewall, it’s time for new tires. Cracks and bulges in the sidewall are a sign that your tire is weak, and may even be close to blowing out, so make your way to Warsaw Buick GMC’s service department as soon as possible.
  4. Tire pressure. If you notice that your tires are losing more than one pound-per-square-inch (PSI) per month on average, you may have a leak.
  5. If you notice that your car is vibrating, your tires may be misaligned or out of balance, or you may have suspension issues. Either way, you should have your technician look at it right away. Even if the tires themselves aren’t causing the vibration, they will almost always be damaged by it.
