How To Tell If You Need New Tires

If a tire begins to bulge at the sides, this is an indicator of inadequate tire pressure or a slow leak of air. We recommend getting an inspection of the tire if any unusual features such as cracks or gouges are visible.

Another way to tell if you need new tires is the penny test. Stick a penny into the grooves of the tread with Lincoln’s head pointing down and if his head is still visible, the tread is too worn. However, new tires have something called wear bars, which are rubber threads embedded in the tread. If the tread is worn down to these wear bars, it’s time to get a new tire.

Checking the tire pressure is also another way to tell if you need new tires. Tires lose approximately one pound per square inch of pressure each month, and while this amount of deflation won’t cause a tire to be worn down in a month, it is important to ensure that the correct level of inflation is always maintained. Extreme temperature changes can also affect tire pressure. In colder weather, the tire pressure may drop. 

Last but not least, thumping or vibrations while driving may also be a sign that it’s time to get new tires.
