How to Know Whether You Need to Get Your Tires Replaced
Not sure if you need to get those tires changed? Yeah, happens to the best of us and here are three factors that you need to pay attention to, in order to determine whether you need to get those tires changed: tread wear, age of your tires and exposure to elements that could affect their performance.
Treads are what make tires useful. These enable the car to grip and stay on the road. These might get affected by weather conditions, snow and rain. If the treads are worn out or have become shallow, it’s probable you need new tires.
Exposure to elements
Climate conditions, the sun’s UV rays, nails and extreme temperature are likely to cause structural changes to a car’s tires. All that expansion, contraction and exposure to nails, stones and shards of glass on the road can get stuck in your tire and thus cause them to get punctured, too.
The older the tires, the more prone they are to structural changes and other factors that are likely to affect their performance. Experts advise car owners to change their tires every 2-3 years. However, if you are someone who drives in areas with rough topography and poor infrastructure, getting your tires changed every 1.5-2 years is a good idea.
