Signs it’s Time to Change Your Tires

  • Tire Tread Depth – The easiest way to tell it’s time to change your tires is to check the tread depth. Take a penny, turn it upside down, and insert it into the tread. If you can see the top of Lincoln’s head, then your tires need to be replaced.
  • Sidewall Bubble – If there’s a bulge on your sidewall there was probably some impact damage to the tire and you should replace it right away.
  • Rough Ride Quality – If you’ve realized that your car isn’t riding as smoothly as usual, it could either be an issue with your suspension or a sign that it’s time for a new set of tires.
  • Frequent Low Tire Pressure – If you find your tires frequently have low tire pressure, then they likely have a leak and/or need to be replaced.
