How to tell when you need New Tires

How do you know you need new tires? 



Treadwear

Honest Abe never lies. Even when it comes to your tire treads. Just place a penny head first into several tread grooves across your tire. If you can see the top of Lincoln's head, your treads are dead and you need new tires. If part of his head is always covered by tread, your tires may be good to go. When in doubt, see us for a free tire inspection and air pressure check.



Exposure to Elements

Driving in a place with extreme heat with prolonged exposure to ultraviolet rays can cause structural damage to your tires. Not good. Tires are tough, but extreme weather will wear them down. Structural damage caused by freezing temperatures, extreme heat, rain, rocks and snow all take their toll on your treads. Be sure to take a look at our different tires for all the different seasons. Whatever the season, we've got the tire to handle it.



Tire Age

Regardless of treadwear, most tire manufacturers recommend you get new tires after 10 years. Check the manufacturer's recommendation on your specific tires
