Cracks

Cracks

Cracks in your tires are a significant warning sign that it is time to replace them soon. If they are cracking, this can mean that they have been stretched and worn down. This is a result of tire wear and over time your tire will further degrade and dry out, causing a loss of integrity which reduces the effectiveness of the safety features that have been implemented into the tire’s design.

Losing-Tire-Pressure

Losing Tire Pressure

There are plenty of factors that may lead to your tire losing pressure. Most commonly there is a tear or puncture that can be an inexpensive repair when you bring it in to us for a patch. Another cause may be that your tire’s valve stem is damaged, hindering its ability to hold air properly. You may also experience air loss if the wheel rim’s seal between the tire and wheel becomes worn or damaged. If you notice a pattern of low pressure, we are available to inspect your vehicle on our service drive.

Tread-Depth

Tread-Depth Is Too Low

A good rule of thumb is the penny test; if you put a penny upside down in your tire’s tread and can see the top of Lincoln’s head, your tread depth is below recommended levels. It is very important to be aware of when our tires start to lose tread as it can be very dangerous during the rainy season. The more shallow the tread the more easily it is to lose grip on the road, if you hear squeaking when you make turns, this can be an indicator of your tires’ status. Tread depth that is too low can also have effects on your vehicle’s stopping distance by inhibiting effectiveness.

Regular Maintenance Is The Key To Ensuring The Life Of Your Vehicle And The Safety Of Everyone.
