How to Check Your Tires for Wear

Tires wear down at different rates depending on factors like the way you drive your vehicle and the conditions you’re driving in. Uneven wear can lead to pulling, loss of traction, and other problems that will make it difficult to maneuver your car properly, so you need to know when you should get new tires in Santa Clara, CA. Watch this video to learn how to check your tires for wear.

Bald tires are dangerous, so check yours often to see if it’s time for a replacement. Tread wear indicators go across the surface of the tire. If the tread matches the level of the wear indicator, you need new tires. Uneven wear could indicate a problem with your alignment and suspension, and cupping suggests that your shock absorbers are malfunctioning. If you put an upside-down penny into the groove of your tire and can see the top of Lincoln’s head, your tread is worn.
