When Should I Replace My Tires?

Changing Tire

There are a few tell-tale signs that it may be time to bring in your vehicle for tire replacement. You should look at the following three areas:

  • Treadwear: While the famed penny test is touted by many a dad, some vehicles require more than 2/32” of tread to get proper traction while some require less. Uneven treadwear is another culprit due to a needed wheel balance or other issues.
  • Sidewall Condition: Watch for cracks or foreign objects that may have found their way into your tire. This type of damage is irreparable and requires immediate tire replacement for your safety.
  • Tire Pressure: If your tire pressure monitoring system keeps letting you know your pressure is low regardless of putting in air, you likely have a tire with damage that you can’t see and need new tires to drive safely on.

If you have any concerns about the integrity of your tires, it’s always wise to bring your vehicle in for a quick tire inspection. Our service center at Bayer Auto Group is always here to ensure your safety for driving in Brownwood and beyond.
