Warning Signs on When to Replace Tires

There are a handful of warning signs on when to replace tires. If any of these signs accurately describe your current cruiser, it's best to get a new set of tires on immediately as worn-out tires can decrease performance.

A few signs of tire wear include:

  • Tires that are bald, with no discernable tread: Trying to make turns or maintain your position becomes much more difficult with bald tires.
  • Cracks or lumps on the sidewall: If you see noticeable cracks running along your tire or find a few lumps or bulges developing, you need new tires!
  • Your vehicle shakes or pulls in a specific direction: Worn tires inhibit performance. If you can't figure out why your vehicle doesn't run in a straight line or pulls to the left during every turn, it may be from worn tires.
  • You've Exceeded Tire Warranty: Often, tires will give you an approximate mileage or age for their use. If you exceed the warranty, it's time to get a new set.
  • Winter is Approaching: If you've recently gotten appropriate tires, winter should be manageable. However, if you haven't had your tires changed in a while and the roads are about to be covered in snow or ice, it's best to get a new set on!

What Causes Tire Wear?

In the same way that symptoms of tire wear vary, there are several factors that will wear down your tires more quickly.

For example, spirited driving with an emphasis on acceleration, hard braking, and corner-carving can quickly run down the tires. Inclement weather will also play a role, too.

How Long Does It Take to Change a Set of Tires?

Our service center wants to provide efficient and effective care each time you stop in. When swapping out a pair of tires, we can accomplish the task in under an hour on average.
