4 Signs of Tire Wear
Tears in the Tread
The tread is the rubber part of the tire that gets the lion’s share of wear and tear. If there’s a tear in the tread or it looks like it’s pulling away from the casing, the tire needs to be replaced. A pulled nail can cause a tire to lose air.
Car tire wear indicators appear when rubber has been worn down to a certain amount. If there are two or three indicators on a tire, it needs to be replaced. Measure the distance from the base of the tread to the surface of the tire with a ruler.
Sometimes a driver will hear whining, thumping or other noises they know aren’t correct from one of their tires. This is a sign of either poor alignment or tires that are very worn out. Now is the time to either get the tires aligned or to buy new ones.
Tread Wear Patterns
Underinflation, over-inflation or poor alignment can cause a tire to leak. If the wear on the treads indicates that the tire is underinflated, it’s time to check it.
