When driving in a car, all cars have some sort of vibration going on. It’s inevitable you will feel some vibration, there are little rocks on the road and no road will ever be perfectly smooth. But this is where personal judgement has to come into place. If you feel like there is too much vibration you probably need to get something fixed. If you have to much vibration going on it could ruin your tires or it could just be a sign that you need new tires.

  1. Bulges and Blisters, Cracks

Bulges, blisters, and cracks.  These call for 911 emergencies to the service center to get new tires. These are caused by the sun or old age of the tire. These can cause air to leak and the probability of the tire blowing out increases drastically.

  1. Tread Wear Indicator Bar

Most tires nowadays have a mark indicating that the tire needs to be replaced. When you first purchase your tires these marks aren’t very visible. To check to see if your tread is to low you can also do the penny trick. You take a penny and place lincoln’s head downward if you can see all of his head then you don’t have enough tread.  Get those tires replaced ASAP.

Tires are the key to your safety on the road. We want you to be safe out there on the roads so please, make sure you tires are in good shape!
