Top 3 Signs Your Tires Are Failing, Paterson, New Jersey

Your tires are essential to your safety, as proper traction diminishes slips and accidents during inclement weather. However, extreme weather conditions may wear them down quicker. Tire failure is often gradual, so many drivers may wait too long before replacing them. Here are the signs to look out for so you can be sure you always stay safe on the road.

How to Spot Tire Failure

1. Uneven Tread

When tires are properly inflated, the tread along the exterior should wear evenly. If you notice that the tread along the middle is worn down more than the rest, it means they were likely over-inflated. If there’s more wear around the outer edge, they were under-inflated. Either way, any noticeable difference in the tread level could impact its ability to grip the road effectively.

2. Overly Worn Tread

tiresEven if the tread has worn evenly, you should look out for excessive wear as well. Most tires have a minimum safe tread depth of 1/16 of an inch, and there is most likely a gauge that will start to show when that depth has been reached. If there isn’t one, inspect it by placing a penny in a groove. If the top of Lincoln’s head is visible, the tread is worn and you should consult a professional to replace it. 

3. Vibrations

If you notice an excessive vibration while driving, schedule a service appointment right away. This could be a result of several issues, including misalignment or damaged wheels. However, it could also be an indicator of a damaged tire, so you may need replacement or repair services. A professional can assess the issue and fix it accordingly.
