Are you wondering if you need new tires? Tires are one of the most important components of every vehicle. Worn out tires not only affect your fuel economy but can also put you in a dangerous situation. Luckily, there are a few indicators that can help you determine if you are in desperate need of some new tires. To learn more about this topic, read this article that TenEyck Distributing, has for you.

How Is Your Tread Depth?

Thread depth is one of the biggest indicators of the condition your tires are in. Take a look at the tread on your tires, measure it, as it should never fall below 1/16 of an inch. Newer tires have a tread wear indicator bar that can be of great and help you realize if your tread is too worn down. Tread wear indicators usually appear as flat rubber bars that run perpendicularly to the direction of the tread. The closer your tread is to the wear indicators, the closer you are to needing a tire change.

Are There Any Cracks in the Sidewalls?

Cracks in the sidewalls is a common issue with tires. If you notice any cracks it is probably due to your tires starting to dry up and degrade. This can be caused by age as well as by being exposed to extreme temperatures. It’s important not to ignore this type of detail as unattended cracks can lead to your tire developing leaks. Before any major issues happening, make sure to get your tires inspected and replaced if necessary.

Falling Air Pressure

When was the last time you checked on your tires’ pressure? When it comes to deflating, tires usually last a long time in proper shape. In average, tires usually deflate about one pound per square inch per month. However, if you start noticing your tires pressure changing, it’s important to look for any factors that may be causing it, like small leaks. Leaks can be fixed by patching them up but if this doesn’t seem to fix the problem, changing your tires may be the solution.

Uneven Tire Tread Wear

Are your tires’ tread wear uneven? Uneven tread wear can be caused by a number of reasons including overinflated or under inflated tires, improper alignment, or even a worn out suspension. If the tread isn’t too word out, a solution can be switching the tires to even out the tread wear. However, if the tread isn’t in good enough shape, getting them replaces is the best solution as it can be dangerous and possibly lead you to be in an unwanted situation.

How Old Are Your Tires?

Tires are made out of rubber, and with time, rubber ages. It’s important to have your tires inspected once a year to ensure everything is in top condition, especially after having them for longer than five years. Even for cars that aren’t in constant use, tires can suffer wear and tear. It’s crucial to ensure tires are in good enough condition and get them replaced when time is due.

Abrupt Temperature Changes

Tires are built to perform best in different circumstances. For example, winter tires have a specific tread pattern to provide extra traction as well as to uphold the extreme temperatures you might face. It’s important to ensure your tires are the correct ones for your conditions, not only to ensure your safety, but to make sure your tires don’t experience any unnecessary wear and tear. You can switch your tires depending on the season and store your other set to ensure they stay safe and protected.
