Signs Your Car Needs New Tires in Vallejo, CA

Tires are incredibly important for your vehicle’s safety, capability, and performance. However, they don’t last forever, so it’s a good idea to watch for these warning signs that tell you it’s time to install new tires.

Your tire treads are worn

Treads help your tires grip the pavement, but over time they will wear down. If you don’t have enough tread depth, your tires won’t have enough traction and you could lose control while driving. To test your treads, stick a quarter upside down between them. If you can see the top of George Washington’s head, your tires are too worn and need to be replaced.

You see cracks, gouges, or bulges in the sidewalls

Every month or so, inspect your tires for cracks, bulging, or gouges in the sidewalls. These can weaken your tires, putting them at risk for leaks or blowouts. If you note any of these types of damage, it’s best to have your tires examined — and most likely replaced.

You feel excessive vibration while driving

If you’re feeling an excessive amount of vibration from your vehicle while driving, it could be a sign that your tires are defective or damaged and need to be replaced. Your best bet is to have this checked out as soon as possible. If it’s not an issue with the tires themselves, it could also be a problem with alignment or balance that will lead to premature tire wear.

Your tires are old

How old are your tires? Even if they aren’t showing any outward signs of wear and tear, their lifespan could be nearing its end. Check your vehicle owner’s manual for specific age limits and replacement recommendations.
