Just because your tires have tread doesn’t mean they’re in good shape.
You had decided to take a short road trip to Old Abilene yesterday to give the kids a bit of fun. But when you started to leave, you had a flat tire. Thankfully, you had a spare and managed to get the tire changed. But your spare is old and doesn’t have much tread, so you decided to put off your drive until you can get your tire situation worked out.
What’s especially frustrating about the flat is that the tire has tread and you were unable to find any punctures or nails in it. So you’re unsure why it went flat.
Sounds as if you’re like most drivers who don’t pay much attention to their tires until the TPMS light comes on or until they go flat. But waiting that long isn’t wise, according to businessinsider.com. There are other indicators signaling the need for new tires.
Businessinsider.com quotes Ron Montoya, the senior consumer advice editor for edmunds.com: “A lot of people just wait until the (tire pressure monitor) light to come on. That’s not when you should be replacing the air in your tires. At that point, it’s actually a little too late and it’s an emergency situation.”
Among the signs that you need new tires, according to businessinsider.com:
- Falling tire pressure
- Low tire tread
- Uneven tire wear
- Odd vibration or noise
- Bubble on the side of the tire
- Cracked rubber
- Old tires
