Top 4 Reasons To Change Your Tires

1. Tires Worn Out

If your tread wear indicator bars are worn, your tires need to be replaced right away. They're little raised bars along your tires grooves that mark the minimum permitted tread depth.

2. Uneven Tire Wear

There is excessive camber in the front suspension, causing the wheel to lean too much to the inside or outside and putting too much load on one side of the tire. The car may simply need the wheels aligned, but misalignment could be due to sagging springs, worn ball joints, or worn control arm bushings.

3. Mechanical/Weather Damage

Replace your tires if they have mechanical damages or cracked and weathered side walls. Weather cracking is a naturally occurring condition that results from exposure to heat and sunlight.

4. Tire Age

The date of manufacture is the last four digits of the DOT code. The first two digits are the week of manufacture, and the last two digits are the year. Even if there are no signs of rot, the industry standard is to swap out tires before they hit 10 years old, and some tire companies recommend replacement as early as six years after manufacture.
