How Do You Know If You Should Change Your Car Tires?

how do you know if you should change your car tires?

Tires are one thing on our car, truck, or SUV that we don’t ever consider until there’s an issue. Yet, there could be some concerns ready to materialize even if the tires appear normal. Replacing your tires may boost your fuel efficiency, improve performance (specifically in emergency situations), boost dependability, and lessen the risk of damage caused by a flat tire. We can help advise you about the positives and negatives of not replacing tires at the right time if you have concerns about getting tires too quickly.



What Are The Potential Hazards of Not Having Your Vehicle’s Tires Changed?

The reduced safety of your car is the largest hazard of not switching your tires. Worn tires may increase braking intervals and diminish traction in crisis conditions. The next time a vehicle pulls out in front of you it might take longer to stop and be more challenging to dodge. Even though you may never encounter an emergency situation, the frustration of having to repair a flat is an event a lot of people would prefer to avoid. On the other hand, the advantage of switching worn tires is that it will take less distance to stop in emergency situations and you’ll have increased handling to miss such situations. Another positive, you won’t need to get grimy changing a worn tire on the highway.

How to Know When Tires Need to be Changed

It’s imperative to understand when to replace your tires. There are 2 simple methods to understand when it’s time to replace your tires. The 1st way is knowing the age of the tires. If your tires are more than 6 years old then you should change them. The second method in determining if you should replace your tires is the tread depth. The recognized smallest safe tread depth is 2/32 inches. You ought to change your tires if it has worn down to that measurement.

tire tread depth: how to figure it out

How to Gauge Tread Depth

But how do I know my tread depth? There are specially designed gauges that will figure out precisely how much tread depth is left. Those tools are perfect if you must know the exact depth, but if you just want to figure out if you need to change your tires, all you need is a solitary penny. Turn the penny so Lincoln’s head is face down and put it into the tire tread. If his head is the same as the tire tread then you ought to start looking to replace your tires.

how many months are tires safe?

Do Tires Go Bad After Time?

If the tires are 6 years old (and older), then you should change them, even if they have plenty of tread left. Extended exposure to the elements and other factors may make the tire to decay over time. When your tire starts to break down it could be more likely to develop blowouts and/or air leaks. Warning signs of your tires breaking down include color fading, brittleness, and tire cracks. If you see any of these indications you may want to switch your tires immediately.

what are the options after a blowout?

A Tire Blew Out, Now What Should I Do?

If you have a blowout you might want to only switch out the tire that failed. Depending on your car and the tread depth remaining on the other tires it may be necessary to change out two or even all 4 tires. If the tread between your tires is not the same it can cause irregular tire wear and excess wear and tear on your drivetrain. It is urged that when you are switching out a tire that you also replace its matching tire on the opposite side. Change both front tires or both back tires, never 1 tire alone. The exception to this rule is All-Wheel Drive cars. All 4 tires need to be changed out to assure that the system works accurately.

My wife and I had a wonderful experience purchasing a certified pre-owned C300 from Mercedes-Benz of Georgetown.

I recently purchased a new GLE 350 at this dealership. Linda was my sales consultant and she was great! Very personable but professional. She spent a lot of time with me and dealt with all my questions and indecision with patience and honesty. Several other employees and Ali were vey diligent in addressing me and following up. Kristin was my finance manager and she was also a pleasure to work with. I'm very pleased with the overall experience and love my vehicle!
