Like everything, eventually, tires come to the end of their life and need to be replaced. A tire failure can be disastrous, especially at high speeds or in vehicles such as trucks or SUVs. Fortunately, some specific warnings signs tell you it is time to have them replaced.

  1. Tread wearing down- All tires have treads designed to help your vehicle have better traction. After a time the tread will start wearing down, even giving your tires a more sleek appearance. This treadwear pattern guide is handy to detect different kinds of wear on your tires. If it is obvious the tread has worn down to the point that your tires are smooth, they should be replaced.
  2. Cracks and bulges- When your tires are nearing the end of their use, cracks will appear on the side wall. This could also signify your tires leak. Also, bulges and blisters will be visible on the surfaces. These weak spots could cause a significant blowout if not caught in time.
  3. Excessive vibration- If you feel your vehicle vibrating more than usual, especially at increased speeds, it could mean they are out of balance or need to be replaced altogether.
