Where the Rubber Meets the Road

Tires are the only part of your vehicle which contacts the road, and so are a critical part of how your vehicle moves and stops when you’re driving. Keeping your tires in good shape and properly inflated should be part of your regular maintenance schedule to keep you, your passengers, and other drivers safe on the road. There are several considerations for when you should replace your vehicle’s tires, including your driving habits and the environment in which you drive most often. There are also signs your tires need replacement you should not ignore.

Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Tires

You should inspect your tires regularly and ask your mechanic to inspect them when you have your oil changed. Regular inspection can help you notice some of the signs your tires require replacement. One of the signs to watch for is uneven or excessive tread wear. There are several reasons for uneven tire wear, including alignment issues and problems with the quality of the tires on your vehicle. If you notice uneven tire wear, you should take your vehicle to a certified service center like Titan Auto and Tire in North Chesterfield, VA, to have the experts inspect your tires and make recommendations on how to proceed. Another sign you may need tire repair or replacement is loss of tire pressure. If you find you’re filling your tires each time you pass a tire pump at the gas station, there’s something wrong. It could be a puncture or something else, but it’s definitely a sign you need to have your tires inspected by an expert. You may not have uneven tire wear, but you may not have enough tire tread. If you insert an American penny into the tread with Lincoln’s head inserted into the tread and you can see the top of Lincoln’s head, your tires have too little tread and need replacement.
