Tracy’s Automotive will help you when it’s time for a new set of tires.
It’s that time of year when the greens of summer are giving way to the reds, yellows and tans of fall as leaves change color before falling to the ground.This year, you’re considering taking a long weekend and traveling around Kansas to get a look at the changing leaves.
That’s a great idea, but, before you head out on your trip, make sure your car is ready for the journey. There are few worse things than having your car break down when you’re in a strange place. And while you’re having your car’s engine checked out, be sure to take a look at your tires.
You want to make sure your tires are at the right pressure and they’ve been rotated and re-aligned to give you the best performance possible.You also want to make sure they’re in good shape and to replace them if needed.
“You should replace your tires when they are too damaged, too worn, or too old to drive safely,” kbb.com says. “It’s easy to repair most minor tire damage caused by running over nails or screws. A tire shop, or a home mechanic with a few basic skills, can plug a puncture hole in a tire, often for less than $20.
“But damage to a tire’s sidewall can threaten the structure of a tire. That kind of damage can occur if you brush up against a curb at high speed or run over an object at an awkward angle. A tire with a weak or damaged sidewall must be replaced to avoid a dangerous blowout.
“Most tires are considered too worn to drive on at all when the tread is less than 1/16 of an inch. So you should replace them before they get to that point. We recommend tire shopping when the tread depth on your tires reaches 1/8 of an inch.”
If you’re not sure whether it’s time for new tires or what kind, it’s time to talk with the trusted Wichita tire technicians at Tracy’s Automotive.
