It’s no secret that tires play a vital role in vehicles functioning properly. Tires provide the traction, balance and control necessary to get from Point A to Point B, and without them, a vehicle is as good as stuck. Over time, tires experience wear to thread and can become damaged due to a lack of preventative maintenance paired with excessive breaking, hitting potholes, speed bumps and sharp objects and driving at high speeds. While services like tire rotations and wheel alignment help prolong tire life and help make them last longer, inevitably, tires need to be replaced every few years because they are typically built to last between 40,000 and 70,000 miles. If you need new tires, visit us at Jack Ingram Nissan for a tire replacement service appointment.
There are several signs that indicate when tires should be replaced. Initially, measure the thread depth and if it is around 2/32-inch, it’s time to have the tires replaced because they are no longer safe. Another indicator that tires need to be replaced is when the side of the tire has bulges or bubbles, cracks and cuts in the side wall or embedded nails or rocks. If you notice any of these symptoms on your vehicle, schedule a service appointment today.
