Signs of Worn-Out Tires

rain tiresKeeping you connected to the road are four very important pieces of rubber. Your tires are a crucial part of your vehicle’s safety, and when they get old and worn out, they could jeopardize your safety. That is why it is very important to know when you have worn-out tires. Here are some of the ways to tell when it is time to replace your tires.

  • Tread depth. With a simple penny, you can test the depth of your tread. Put a penny head down into the grooves on your tire. If you see the top of Lincoln’s head, your tread is too low. Do this test on a few places on each tire since they do not always wear evenly.
  • Other signs of wear. If the tires have any cracks or bulges on the side wall, you need to get them inspected as soon as possible.
  • Age. Regardless of wear, tire manufacturers recommend you replace your tires every 6 to 10 years. Check the recommendation for your specific tires.

If you are concerned about the wear or age of your tires, schedule a service appointment here at Pantili Mitsubishi and we can inspect your tires and let you know if they are in need of replacement.
