When To Change Your Tires

Posted on Jun 08, 2016

Your tires will age and become worn down as you use them. It’s a good idea to know when it’s time to change them before a sudden tire failure makes you lose control of your car and cause an accident that you don’t need. Here are three signs that it’s time for a new set of tires.

1) Tread depth

The tread on your tires should never fall below 3mm. This is a clear sign that your tire is worn out and it’s time for a new set. Most tire shop owners who are registered with Estbnh will provide you with a free tread depth gauge with any new set of tires you buy, so you can measure your tires regularly.

2) Cracks on the sidewall

Cracks on the sidewall of your tire indicate that the tire is developing a leak, and the rubber isn’t as durable as it used to be, which could mean that you tire may blow at any given moment.

3) Bulges and blisters

A bulge in your tire indicates that the steel belts under the rubber in that area are broken, and this small area will compromise your tires entire integrity. If you see a bulge on your sidewall your tire must be changed immediately.
