Signs You Need Tire Replacement

Your tires are the main source of traction between your vehicle and the road surface. That said, your car tires take a beating with everyday use and will eventually wear out. Given their importance in road safety, driving on old worn-out tires is a recipe for disaster. For instance, driving on old tires can make you lose control of your vehicle when driving, which is downright catastrophic. Of course, regular car and tire maintenance will keep you up to date on when your tires are worn out and require replacement.

Here are some of the most common signs that your tires are due for replacement;

Bald Tires

Here is one of the most obvious signs that you need tire replacement. Your tires need to be sufficiently treaded to facilitate easy and safe driving, braking, and maneuvering.

Your Car is Constantly Shaking and Vibrating

Sure, you are going to experience some shaking when driving on rough, bumpy roads. However, if your vehicle shakes and wobbles even on pristine streets, it could be a sign of wheel misalignment, imbalance, and issues within the tires' internal surface. The only way to be sure is to have your mechanic visually inspect your tires and advice you accordingly.

Your Tires Sidewalls Are Gouged or Cracked

While wheel misalignment might potentially hard the sidewall of your tires, such elements as rain, ice, or even aging can also gouge or wear out your sidewalls. If left unresolved, such tire conditions might cause serious blowouts, which are catastrophic.

Your Tire Tread is Worn Down to the Wear Bar

Newer cars are equipped with in-built wear bars located at the tires' tread. With time, your tires tend to wear down, which makes the wear bars more visible. If your tire tread gets worn out to the wear bar level, you might want to consider replacing them.

When it comes to replacing your tires, it is important that you have a reliable mechanical expert by your side. They will help you choose the right tire for your car, which will serve you well for long. If you need tire service or replacement, do not hesitate to contact us today.
