It’s easy to know you need new tires when you’ve experienced a blowout on the highway or you see a nail in your tire’s tread. Sometimes, however, it can be a little more difficult to tell when it’s time to replace your tires. Take a look at these indications that your vehicle is due for a new set of tires.
If you notice any cracks on the sidewall of your tire, it’s time to consider replacing your tires. Cracks and cuts develop over time and can potentially lead to a blowout. That’s why it’s important to give your tires a once-over every so often.
If your vehicle feels like it’s vibrating or shaking as you drive, this can be a sign that your tires are unbalanced or misaligned. It can also indicate that a tire has an internal problem. To determine and resolve the issue, you should consider taking your vehicle to the service department.
When you spot a bulge on the side of your tire, you need to quickly have the tire replaced in order for you to keep safe behind the wheel. A blistered or bulging tire is potentially your last warning before a dangerous blowout occurs.
