When do I Need to Have my Tires Looked at?

The Importance of Tire Safety

Tires are one of the most important and often overlooked parts on a vehicle. A powerful engine is useless if the power can't g transferred into the ground. Likewise, tires are an essential part of the braking system. Braking safety can get compromised if tires become too worn. Therefore, it is important to regularly have your tires inspected, rotated and replaced regularly by an automotive professional.

How Often Should Tires Be Replaced?

Tires should get replaced approximately every six years, 60,000 miles, or when the tread is worn 1/16th of an inch or more. There are ways to check these on your own, but it gets recommended that you have them inspected professionally as quality tires are imperative in the safe operation of your vehicle. Tires should get rotated generally every six months or 6,000 miles. Tire rotation ensures that your tires are going to wear evenly over time.
