Why Replace Your Tires?
Replacing your tires helps keep you safe. When tires wear down, they do not grip the road well, are more prone to blowouts, and can make your braking less effective. Keeping your tires inflated properly can help maintain their good condition for longer.
Depending on what type of tire you have, the manufacturer, and how much you drive can all affect when your tires need to be replaced. On average, tires should be replaced every six years.
Signs Your Tires Need Replacing
There are a couple of signs that let you know that it’s time to replace your tires. A couple of signs to keep your eye out for are:
- Bubbles and bulges in your tire
- Vibration in the steering wheel
- Sidewall cuts or cracks
- Debris embedded in tires
A test to check your tires at home is the penny test. Take a penny and turn it, so Lincoln’s head is in the tread. If the top of his head disappears, your tire is fine. If you can see his head, it’s time to replace your tires.
