How Would You Know If You Need New Tires?

You buy a car, take care of it like your baby, repair the dent whenever it appears, and make sure that nothing happens to the body of the car; and what not! But, even after doing so many things for your car, you end up neglecting one of the most important parts of your car – the tires.

Tires are the most important parts as our and our car’s life depends on them. You must make sure that you take the right care of your car.

There are so many times when we get confused whether or not we should change our tires. To make sure you don’t get confused about replacing your tire, here are a few tips for you—

Know the basic –

No one can exactly say how long a tire exactly lasts. The lifespan and mileage of a tire depends of a combination of factors: its design, the driver’s habits, the climate, the road conditions and the care that's put into the tires.

Keep these things in mind –

1.    Five years is the minimum duration your car’s tire will last for. After it crosses five years, keep inspecting the tires once a year by professionals.

2.    If the tires haven't been replaced 10 years after their date of manufacture, as a precaution, Michelin recommends replacing them with new tires. Even if they appear to be in usable condition and have not worn down to the tread wear indicator.

   If you take proper and good care of your tires, your tires’ longevity will increase.

Whether to replace your car or not?

There are a few ways you can determine whether or not you need to replace your car’s tire. But before that, you must make sure that when you are replacing your tire and opting for tire installation in Vancouver, you only approach professional tire installation services.

So here is when you need to replace your tire –

1.    The tread is worn beyond the recommended tread depth levels
2.    Pay attention to the kind of “feel” you get while driving your car.
3.    If you notice vibrations or other disturbances while driving, immediately reduce speed, drive with caution until you can safely pull off the road and stop, and inspect your tires.
4.    If a tire is damaged, deflate it and replace it with your spare. If you do not see any tire damage and cannot identify the source of the vibration, take the vehicle to a tire dealer for a thorough inspection.
