Common Signs

That Indicate You Need New Tires

Tread Wear:

The most obvious sign is worn tread. Over time, the tread on tires wears down, reducing their ability to grip the road, especially in wet conditions. A simple way to check this is the “penny test.” Insert a penny into the tire tread with Lincoln’s head facing down; if you can see the top of Lincoln’s head, it’s time for new tires.

Irregular Tread Wear:

Uneven wear can be due to a variety of issues, including improper inflation, misaligned wheels, or problems with suspension components. It’s important to address not just the tire replacement, but also the underlying cause of uneven wear.

Sidewall Cracks:

Check the sidewalls for cracks, cuts, or grooves that are visible to the naked eye. This could be a sign that your tire is developing a leak or is close to failure.

Bulges or Blisters:

Sometimes the tire’s outer surface weakens, leading to a bulge or blister that extends outward. This weak spot can cause a sudden blowout and should be addressed immediately.

Vibration or Unusual Noise:

Excessive vibration while driving (not related to road conditions) can indicate an issue with your tires. While this can be caused by alignment or suspension issues, it could also suggest that the tires are unevenly worn or damaged.

Age of the Tires:

Even if the tread isn’t heavily worn, old tires should be replaced after a certain number of years due to the aging of the rubber. Most manufacturers recommend replacing tires every 6 years, regardless of tread wear.
