Best Time to Get a New Pair of Tires

by | Sep 2, 2020 | Time for tires, Tire, Tire inspection, Tire Repair, Transmission fluid | 0 comments


There is no set time to see when exactly you will need a new pair of tires. The mileage and lifespan of a tire depend on a combination of multiple factors such as the driver’s habits and the road conditions. It is also determined by its design, and how much care has been put into the tires.

Tires need to be replaced before the tread gets below 1/16 inch – if you do it sooner, it will maintain proper handling and braking. Anytime that the tires start to show signs of wear and age, make sure to have them inspected by us. We can advise you on what we recommend, and if new tires are needed.

Timelines to Know

5 years

For tires that have been in use for more than five years, they should be checked thoroughly. This should be done at least once a year to help ensure they are in proper condition.

10 years

If they haven’t been replaced in over ten years after their manufacturing date, consider replacing them. Even if they seem in great condition, you will want to have them inspected. This applies to spare tires as well.

Lifetime Care

Increase the lifespan of the tires by maintaining the ideal air pressure in them. Other maintenance includes regular vehicle maintenance and regular tire rotations.

What Damages Your Car Tire?

There are a few ways the tires can get damaged. Fortunately, the most common causes of tire damage are entirely under your control. One problem can be tires that are over inflated or under inflated. Either of these can lead to irregular tread wear for the tires. Also remember to slow down. Driving at high speeds can also damage the tires. Applying the brakes at high speeds can cause the tire to build up heat, abrasion, and even air loss.

Getting your tires replaced at the right time is very important. It protects you and your loved ones from facing roadside emergencies, giving them a smooth driving experience.
