3 Signs It’s Time to Purchase New Tires , Lihue, Hawaii

While some may wait until they get a flat before replacing their tires, the experts at Tire Warehouse Kauai in Lihue, Hawaii, have found that this leads to further car damage and costly repairs. Rather than just having to replace your car’s tire, you may have to replace the rims and wheels. Don’t wait until it’s too late. Instead, look for these signs that it’s time for new tires and have them replaced before they start giving you trouble. 

3 Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Car Tires 

1. The Treads Are Worn

The most obvious sign you need new car tires is worn treads. Inspect yours regularly to ensure they are still in good shape. Newer tires are now made with tread wear bars that rest between the grooves. When the tread bar becomes level with the treads, then this is an indication that your tires have become too worn and they need to be replaced.

While each car make and model differ, on average, you should replace your tires if you’ve put 25,000 to 50,000 miles on your vehicle since you last got new tires. For a specific mileage number, you can refer to your owner’s manual. This is an important sign to consider if you have a long commute or drive long distances regularly.  

3. It’s Been Over 6 Years Since They Were Last Replaced

Another good rule of thumb is to change your tires every six years. Even for those car owners who rarely hit the road, 10 years is the maximum amount of time you should go between getting new tires. At this point, the manufacturer's designated life has expired, and they’re no longer safe to drive on.
