Time for New Tires? Know the Signs

How Do You Know if You Need New Tires?

You need to be aware of three things when deciding if you need new tires:
Tread Wear, Exposure to the Elements and Tire Age.

Tread Wear
Who says a penny or a quarter won't buy you anything? With this easy test, a penny or a quarter can buy you peace of mind when it comes to your safety.

Place a penny head first into several tread grooves across one of your tires. If you always see the top of Lincoln's head, your treads are shallow and worn with less than 2/32" of tread left. Your tires need to be replaced immediately.

If you can see the top of Washington's head but not Lincoln's, the tire is worn with less than 4/32" of tread left and you should consider purchasing new ones.


Why Worry About Tread Wear?
The most important reason to worry about tread wear is safety. When your tire treads are worn, your car may respond poorly in bad weather conditions like rain and snow. With good treads your car will grip the road better. And worn treads can make other parts of your car wear prematurely.

Exposure to the Elements
Exposure to heat and the sun's ultraviolet rays may cause structural changes to your tires. These changes are not usually a concern in moderate climates.

Tire Age
How old are your tires? Regardless of tread wear, vehicle manufacturers generally recommend you replace your tires at six years. Most tire manufacturers recommend you replace your tires at 10 years. Check the manufacturer's recommendations on your specific tires.
