Why You Need to Replace All-Season Tires

 

Although they may say "all-season" tires, that doesn't mean they can last for all seasons all the time. There comes a time when you need to plunge in and replace those year-round tires. Why do you need to be diligent about replacing your tires?

 

For one thing, a worn tire can blow out while drive, causing you more trouble than expected. Also, when tires start to get worn or threadbare in certain spots, you may not be able to stop adequately if the ground is slippery at all. When this occurs, you could end up hydroplaning, skidding, or losing control of the vehicle. All these potential occurrences can lead to an accident. So, to be safe on the road, it's crucial to always drive with good tires.

 

When to Replace Your All-Season Tires

 

You may not know when to replace your tires. The tire manufacturer gives recommendations on when to replace them. On average, tires may last for 96,000 km to 120,500 km or 5 years. However, some people are harder on tires than others. Plus, there are items that can cause damage to your tires and cause them to wear down faster.

 

It's always good to inspect your tires even if it hasn't been that many kilometres or years. You can look for worn-out spots on the tire tread. Also, if the tire tread is not tall anymore, then chances are you need new tires. Other signs that you might be ready for a new set of tires includes:

 

  • Vibration while driving
  • Cuts to the sidewall
  • Bulging parts of the tire
  • Visible damage to the tire
  • Slowly losing air
  • Embedded things in the tire

 

If you're not comfortable checking them yourself, you can have an auto technician look at your tires for wear and tear. They will measure the actual tread depth with a piece of equipment so that you can be assured of whether you need new tires or not.
