When it comes to car maintenance, most drivers overlook the needs of their tires. But making sure your tires are in great condition is crucial to being safe on the road. In order to stay safe and optimize the performance of your car, it is important that you check your tires regularly.
These are some of the most common warning signs that suggest you need new tires.
- Falling Air Pressure – If the air pressure in your tires does not stay consistent, you may have a leak or hole that needs to be patched. Look your tires over for a nail or something that may have punctured your tire.
- Low Tread – Over time, the tread on your tires will wear down, which is why you need to inspect your tires twice a season to ensure the treads are in good condition.
- The Car Vibrates – Weird vibrations coming from your tires is an indicator that the alignment is off; however, it could mean there is a more serious problem with your tires. Vibrations or noises could mean you have a damaged tire that needs to be replaced.
- Cracked Rubber – A common sign your tire is old and needs to be replaced is when the rubber starts to crack or bubble.
The best way to ensure your tires are in great condition is to inspect them once a month. Make sure to check your tire pressure at least one a month or have your mechanic give your tires an inspection. Reach out to us if you have any questions about replacing your tires.
