Your tires are the foundation of your car, but regular use can cause the tread to become worn down. In addition, pot holes, curbs or accidents can cause damage. To know when to replace your tires consider wear and seasonal conditions.
Wear and Damage
Every time you take your vehicle on the road, your vehicle’s treads give the car traction. Even driving on smooth roads will cause wear over time. Fortunately, it is easy to determine if your tires need to be replaced due to normal use; all you need is a penny. If you can see all of Lincon’s head when inserting the penny head-side down in the tread, it is time to replace them. Beyond normal wear, you may also need new wheels if you hit something or cause damage. A cut, tear or visible bulge in the tire indicates problems that require replacing it.
If you live in an area where winters are harsh with snow, ice and unsafe roads, you may also want to replace your tires for winter driving. Tires designed for winter weather can improve traction on slippery roads, but also cost more. Toyo tires offer durable all season tires so that winter weather doesn’t hold you back.
