When you’re driving and the ride feels smooth, you’re not thinking about your tires. So, it may be that you reach five years and do not realize that it’s time to update your tires. If you check your owner’s manual and consult with a service technician, they’ll let you know that this is a fact.
For drivers who ride on rough roads or uneven terrain, your tires may need to be replaced much sooner. If you’re going to regular service appointments, your service tech will check them out and let you know how they’re doing. Reviewing the inflation level monthly and getting tire rotations every six months can keep them in shape.
You may not realize that your tires need an update. When you know the signs of tire wear and tear, then you can plan to get them replaced, squirrel away the cost, and make an appointment in advance. The signs can nudge you in the right direction.
Does your tire pressure light appear on the dashboard? You may need more inflation, or your tire may possess a leak. It’s best to let one of our service techs examine them and either patch the leak or guide you in buying new tires.
Take a moment to look at your tires up close. If they look worn out, shabby, or cracked, this may indicate that your tires should be replaced.
Treads can predict how close your tires may be to being retired. You can even measure them yourself to find out. Take a quarter, insert into the tread. If Washington disappears into the depths of the tread, your tires can hold out a while longer. If George stays at the top of the treads, it’s time for new tires.
As we mentioned earlier, tire rotations are important and should be performed once every six months. If you forget to do this or skip the appointment, your tires may wear out unevenly. This can lead to an uneven or wobbly ride, which won’t be a comfortable experience and could shorten the life of your tires.
