Signs of Tire Damage
You can come to us as soon as you notice signs of tire damage. Our technicians will immediately inspect the issue, diagnose it, and act quickly whether the tire must be fixed or replaced. Signs of serious damage that can affect your safety include:
Worn treads: Modern standards dictate tire tread depth should be at least 1/16 inch deep. Treadwear indicators are present on most tires, but you can use a treadwear gauge as well. Also, if you insert a penny into a tire groove and the top of Abe Lincoln’s head is visible, excessive wear is present.
Uneven wear: Tires should wear evenly. If not, it can indicate more serious tire damage or other problems, such as wheel misalignments or suspension damage. The tires may have been inflated improperly as well.
Visible damage: Other signs of damage include cracked or cut sidewalls. A blister or bulge in the sidewall indicates a weakness that can cause the tire to blow out; the only solution is to replace the tire right away.
Vibration: Excessive vibration in a car can mean many things. Sometimes it’s a shock absorber or alignment problem. It can also be due to internal tire damage that will get worse if not corrected.
Tire pressure leaks are common. Air can easily leak from the junction of the wheel and valve, and through the rubber as well. A leak can be so slow you don’t notice it and even change with the seasons, but significantly affect vehicle control. That’s because the sidewall flexes much more at lower pressures; a minor change in pressure can affect handling, make your car wallow, and reduce fuel economy.
If the leak is localised, our technicians can patch your tires at the site of the problem. This is done quickly, and you can typically get right back on the road afterwards. If you drive over a nail or sharp object without noticing it, our team has the equipment to find the leak point and use tire patching to save you time and money.
