After raising three kids and at one time having five drivers under one roof, we have done our share of buying new tires. Thankfully, my husband and my two sons (and even our daughter) know how to maintain a vehicle and do simple car maintenance We save a lot of time and money doing our own oil changes, tire purchasing, and car repair. Making sure your kids know how to determine if they need new tires will keep them safe as they leave home and have to use their own judgement on car maintenance issues.
4 Signs You Need New Tires
Making sure your tires are in tip top condition all year long is important, but you need to pay special attention when it comes to winter weather driving. Driving in bad weather is hard enough and not having good tires on your car could be disastrous. If you are ever in doubt about tire conditions visit your local Sam’s Club for a tire inspection. #DareToCompare
- Vibrations – Some time a vibration while your driving is easy to dismiss. We may think it’s road conditions or other car problems. When you feel a vibration there’s a good chance you have a tire with a broken belt or you need a wheel alignment to prevent further tire wear.
- Bulges – Be sure to examine your tires before you head out on the road. Winter weather means pot holes and extreme temperature changes which can affect your tires quickly.
- Tread Wear – Most new tires have their own wear bars: bits of rubber woven into the pattern at a specific depth so you can easily see wear. If you are unsure, the tried and true penny test is another way to check tread wear: Place a penny into the tread, with Lincoln’s head pointing down. If you can still see the crown of his head, your tire tread is too low.
- Checking or Cracking – If you notice a crack anywhere on the sidewall of a tire, you definitely need new tires.
