Tires are a crucial component of vehicle performance and your safety on the go. As you drive around the Murray, Mayfield, and Paducah areas in your daily driver from Chip Wynn Motors, be on the lookout for these tell-tale signs that you need new tires:
Worn tire tread
If your tires are balding, you run the risk of losing traction and thus control of your vehicle. If the tires fail the classic penny test (when you can see Lincoln’s head), it’s time for new tires.
Loss of air pressure
If your tires continue to lose air pressure despite refilling, you likely have a leak. If patching the tire doesn’t do the trick, you will need to replace the leaky tires.
Uneven tire tread wear
If your tires are not wearing evenly, this could be a sign that your wheels are misaligned, your tires aren’t properly inflated, or your vehicle may even have damaged suspension parts. Whatever the case, you may need to replace some tires earlier than others if this happens.
How to get the most mileage out of your tires
To make your tires last, make sure they are always properly inflated. Get regular tire rotations to ensure even wear on all four tires and get regular wheel alignments when you go in for service.
