Signs Your Tires Need to be Replaced

A monthly check of your vehicle’s tires can save you from dealing with potentially hazardous situations down the road. The tire’s tread is what allows it to deflect water as you’re driving in rain or snow. When you don’t have enough tread, your wheels are going to skid on the pavement when you try to stop.

Perform a visual inspection of the tires and then check each tire’s tread. If using a quarter, place it with Washington’s head down between the treads. If you can see the top of his head, then it’s time for new tires. An alternate method is to look for one of six wear bars placed horizontally between the treads throughout the tire. If the bar is flush with the tread, you need to get a replacement right away.
