You may need new tires if you notice any of these indicators:
- Your tread is below 4/32″, or cannot pass the “penny” test
- Footstep is visibly lowered or flush with the tread bars
- Uneven tread wear
- Bulges, bumps or soft spots on the tire
- Damage to the tire that cannot be mended
Noticing any of these signs of wear? You should have a technician check your tires and determine if you need new tires.
All tire tread has a finite lifespan and begins to wear, eventually creating a potential safety hazard for you and your passengers. Tire wear happens with typical driving, although various other factors such as driving habits, driving conditions, and weather may shorten the life of your tires. Keep your tires in working condition.
