Your Subaru tires are built tough and ready for all types of terrain and road conditions, but they do need to be replaced eventually. Here are three signs that you should visit the tire shop here at Lester Glenn Subaru.
Frequently Losing Air
If you fill your tires to the proper pressure and notice that one or two of them keep losing air no matter what you do or what the temperature outside is like, you might need new tires. There could be damage that you can’t see that is causing your tires to leak air. Our mechanics might be able to fix them, but if they cannot find a fix, you’ll need to purchase new tires.
Obvious Signs of Damage
Obvious signs of damage like cracks, bulges, and puncture holes need to be addressed immediately. In some cases, the damage is too extensive to be fixed, so you’ll need some new tires.
Uneven Wear and Tear
All four tires should wear down at roughly the same rate. If you notice that one of your tires is wearing down much faster than the others or that some tires are not wearing down evenly, you might need to replace your tires with new ones that will deliver a more consistent ride quality.
Once the tread on your tires gets too shallow, they can’t deliver the traction you need to stay safe in all kinds of driving conditions. It can be hard to eyeball this, but there is a simple test that you can do to see if your tires are too worn down.
Place a penny upside-down in the tread of the tire. If you can see Abe’s entire head, your tread depth is too shallow, and you need new tires.
