How to Tell If You Need New Tires

A vehicle's tires are essential to safety and performance. By driving a car with worn-out tires, your car will perform poorly, and be putting others at risk. Therefore, you should always inspect your tires to check if they are roadworthy. The following is how you can tell if you need new tires:


Tires will age and deteriorate naturally with use. Heat, ice, water, and other chemicals that react with rubber will lead to tire degradation.

When your tires have cracks due to wear and tear, it is time to get new tires. These tires are a
major risk because they may lead to a tire bust and possibly a road accident.

The good news is that it is easy to check for and notice cracks in tires.

Tread Depth

The most common way of knowing if your tires need replacing is to check their treads. Tire treads should create friction between the tires and the road. The deeper the treads, the more grip the tires have.

Therefore, the tire treads should be as deep as possible. If the treads are shallow and you feel you do not have enough grip, replace the tires.

Also, check for uneven tread wear, as it can lead to performance issues. Rotating the tires should help with uneven tread wear.

Tire Pressure Issues

You should maintain your car's tire pressure at a specific setting, according to the owner's manual. You should check the tire pressure as often as possible.

If you are having tire pressure issues, you should first check to see if you have a slow puncture. Otherwise, you need new tires.

The above are several signs that you need new tires. If you need new vehicle tires, bring your car to Complete Automotive today.
