How Do I Know When I Need New Tires?

One of the most noticeable signs that you will need a new set of tires is when you begin to notice notable wear, low tread depth, and unnatural vibration when you drive. Some of the common damage markers are uneven tread wear, damaged valve caps, rocks or nails, or lack of tread

This, in addition to a rougher ride can mean it is time for a new set of tires. If your tires do not show signs of wear and tear, but are older, then it could be time for new tires. Tires are rated to last no longer 10 years and should be changed around that time. Finally, if you drive at excessive speed, during extreme conditions, on rough roads, or neglect the basic maintenance, your tires will wear down quicker and cause you to have to replace tires more regularly.

How can I check my car's tires for safety?

Keeping your tires in check is something you can do right at home on your own. You can check your tire pressure, use a penny to check the tire tread, and inspect the tires for any cuts or damage. Still, determining when you need new tires can be tougher.
