When Is It Time To Replace a Tire?
At Westerville Automotive in Westerville, we change many tires that should’ve been replaced long ago. Your tires can go for miles and miles, but there always comes a time to replace them. So how can you tell when the right time is?
Blowouts are an inconvenience you can do without; besides the danger of losing control or damaging another vehicle, going through the hassle of getting your vehicle towed or replacing a tire on the side of the road is an experience best avoided. Inspect your tires before every trip for tread depth, uneven wear, and low tire pressure. Be sure to thoroughly inspect for uneven wear...sometimes a bad suspension component will wear out the inside of the tire very rapidly, over the course of just a few hundred miles, and at a glance from the outside of the tire the tread may look fine. If the tire is only wearing in one spot, it’ll go quick, no matter how good the rest of the tire looks. Watch for sidewall damage and dry-rot as well. Both severely weaken the structural integrity or the tire, increasing the potential for a blowout without warning.
