How do I know if I need tires?

How do I know if I need tires?

There are several signs to look out for that indicate you may need new tires:

1. Tread Wear: Inspect the tread depth of your tires. If it's worn down to 2/32 of an inch or less, it's time for new tires.

2. Uneven Wear: Check for uneven wear patterns on the tires, which could indicate alignment issues or improper inflation.

3. Cracks or Bulges: Look for cracks, cuts, or bulges on the sidewalls of the tires, as these can compromise tire integrity.

4. Age: Even if your tires have plenty of tread, they may still need replacing if they're older than six years, as rubber deteriorates over time.

5. Vibrations: Experiencing excessive vibrations while driving could be a sign of tire wear or imbalance.

6. Handling Issues: If your car feels less responsive or tends to drift, it could be due to worn tires.

If you notice any of these signs, it's a good idea to have your tires inspected by a professional to determine if they need replacing. Give the professionals at Wayside Garage in Seaside, CA a call at 831-899-2425. We are happy to answer your automotive questions.
