Time for New Tires: Know the Signs of Tire Damage


Tires squealing when you turn? Getting tire pressure errors in your dash? You may need to replace your tires. There are some simple things that you can do to test your tire's durability.

For example, you can take a penny to test your tire's tread wear. This is the simplest trick but will save you time overall. All you have to do is take a penny and place between the tread grooves. If you can see the top of President Lincoln's head, then your tread is quite low. It's time for some new tires.

Why is it important to check your tires? For one, you do not want to get stuck on the side of the road. There are other issues besides tread that can affect your driving experience, such as tire age, bubbles, and tears. If you feel any of these while driving, you may want to get your tires looked at immediately. You can always go to the experts at Scaffidi Motors located in Stevens Point for any tire checks and balances.
