When was the last time you put new tires on your vehicle? If you’re like many drivers, until you get a flat tire or end up hydroplaning on the highway, thinking about purchasing new tires is not at the top of the list of your vehicular priorities! However, there are many small signs that indicate it’s time for new wheels to keep your car and passengers safe while you’re driving.
6 Signs That You Need New Tires
Bald Tires: The most glaring sign that you need to replace your tires is tired that is obviously bald. Bald tires are more likely to fail in any conditions, but especially in rainy, snowy or icy conditions. Without tread, your tires cannot properly brake, turn corners and drive safely.
Cracks or Gouges in the Sidewalls: Any damaged tire is unsafe to drive on, so if the sidewalls on your tires are cracked or have gouges in them, you should invest in new tires. Poor wheel alignment can contribute to this problem, so make sure that you have your tires aligned whenever you go in for vehicle maintenance.
Shaking: Is your car shaking when you drive? While poor-quality roads might be the culprit, poor tire quality, bad tire alignment, and balance issues are also common problems.
Out of Warranty: Most tires come with a manufacturer’s tread wear warranty that ensures them to last for a certain amount of time or a certain number of miles. Once your tires are out of warranty, you should strongly consider having them checked and think about buying new tires that will be under warranty.
Spare Tire: Have you been treating a spare tire like it is a normal tire? If you are relying on your spare tire, you need to replace it with a regular tire that is built for regular usage. Spare tires are only designed for temporary use, so you will have less traction, less cornering ability and poorer driving experience.
Cords: Can you see the cords through the rubber on your current tires? That means that your tires are not safe for use while driving, and you are putting yourself at an increased risk of a blowout or flat.
