Signs You Need New Tires

Like any other part in your vehicle, tires wear out eventually. Thoughts on the subject do vary, but generally speaking tires should be replaced every 10 years, if not a little sooner. Tires do have an expiration date, which can be a handy guide to replacement.

Other than the expiration date, how can you know when it’s time to buy a new set of tires for your vehicle? There are several signs you can keep an eye out for. Regular visual inspections can alert you to any issues like tears or abrasions.

Another simple check you can do from time to time is the penny tread test. Simply place an upside-down penny in your tire tread. You shouldn’t be able to see Abraham Lincoln’s head popping out. If you do, though, it’s time to retire your tires.

Also, if you ever experience odd vibrations while driving, noises that are out of the ordinary, or any other indications that something’s not quite right with your tires, our technicians can help confirm whether it’s time for a tire change.
