How Can I Tell When I Need New Tires?

Are you concerned about the condition of your vehicle’s tires? There are various ways to check the health of tires. There is the handy penny trick that you can use. Just put in a penny in the tread of the tire head first. If you can see the head on the penny, it may be time to get new a set of tires because the tire tread is too low. You may also want to consider the age of the tires, and when they last got put on your vehicle. If it has been quite a few years since you last had them replaced, make an appointment with our Service Center for a tire inspection. Other factors to look out for include bulges and flaws in the tires. If you notice that one of the tires looks different than the others, this may mean that there is something wrong with it. Be sure to see us promptly to avoid a blowout. While driving, if the ride feels bumpy or is pulling to one side, this can also be a sign that the tires are worn. You may also need an alignment, so it is wise to make an appointment promptly.
