Outside Wear | Maple Street Tires

Tracy’s Automotive on Maple Street will help if your tires are wearing down on the outside.

You were walking back to your car today after Fan Fest when you noticed your tires looked worn. Trouble was, they’re not evenly worn. They’re worn on the outside of the tire.

“Outside tire wear can be caused by a number of variables, all of which require special attention,” according to cartreatments.com. Among the causes of excessive outside wear are under-inflation, excessive camber (the tilt of the tire), incorrect toe adjustment (the inward/outward angle of the tire’s adjustment), and worn or damaged suspension components.

Don’t blow off the situation. Worn tires can be dangerous. Cartreatments.com explains:

“If such irregular wear has just started, and is rather minor in appearance, one can often salvage such a tire by rotating it to another wheel end location. Of course, the root cause of this abnormal wear must also be corrected.

“On the other hand, any tire that has been structured compromised by abnormal wear should be discarded without hesitation. This includes those that have begun exhibiting significant outer edge wear. If secondary rubber (structural non-tread rubber), or belting material has become visible, the use of this tire should cease immediately.

Tires exhibiting irregular wear can be at risk for a blow-out, which in turn, can cause a wreck. This is especially true of any tire with cord or belting material visibly showing.

“Driving on tires in this state can be extremely hazardous, and can significantly increase one’s chance of being injured in a wreck. Therefore, periodic tire inspection is of the highest importance, and can even save lives in certain cases.

“If in doubt, it is always better to discontinue the use of a particular tire, rather than risking your safety, or the safety of your family. Though tires can be relatively expensive, they are worth every penny when one’s life is on the line.”
