How To Make Sure Your Tires Are Safe

If you’ve been having the feeling that your tires are wearing out, then there is a chance they might be due for replacement. It’s important to know when this should happen so don’t wait too long! Here are some tips on checking if it may need replacing:

-Look at their tread depth–shouldn’t show much more than 2/32 inch in places; otherwise known as “legal”. This can also mean whether or not traction has suffered since excessive wear could cause accidents with other drivers who do not see what appears only like smooth pavement until something goes wrong

Check Tread Depth

Your tire’s tread should never fall below 1/16 of an inch or 1.6 millimeters and if you regularly drive on wet surfaces, it would be better with twice that much traction for your safety! There is also an old trick to estimate how much usable depth there still left in the road which doesn’t cost more than a penny: take Abraham Lincoln’s head (down) and put into its original position where applicable; If all his features can be seen from when lodged inside out – meaning Abe has been placed at least this deep through proper alignment-, then drivers have enough remaining rubber before needing new tires.”

Check Tire Pressure

With the right air pressure, you can help to promote tire durability and prolong tread life. Keeping your tires properly inflated will also allow for a more comfortable drive because it reduces road noise so that everyone in the car is happy!
-Properly inflating each individual tire keeps them strong enough while not overdoing it which might cause problems with blowouts or underinflation during extreme conditions

 

Consider The Weather

Cooler temperatures are the perfect time to check your tire pressure. You never know when you will need them, so it’s best not wait until there is an emergency! Cold winter months can cause underinflated tires that may lead towards dangerous situations on roadways with slippery roads causing more hazards than they would have during warmer weather where traction might be less of a factor in accidents caused by loss of control at high speeds due primarily braking distance rather than design characteristics alone since stopping distances increase exponentially as speed increases

Consider Tire Quality

Tires are an essential part of your car, but they can’t last forever. A tire’s life and quality will vary by car type, like high-performance or all season tires; even road conditions affect how long the tire lasts before replacement is needed. Today many tires have treads that can withstand 50 thousand miles of travel on average without needing to be replaced again – this means you should check with manufacturer recommendations for their specific types if there is any doubt about whether it’s time for new rubber!
