Have you been having more than your share of flat tires lately? It is probably time to replace those worn-out tires! Even with regular tire service, such as alignments, balancing, and rotating, tires can only last a certain number of miles.

So when should you get new tires for your car? Under normal driving conditions and with proper tire service, standard tires should last up to 50,000 miles, unless you consistently drive on poor roads shortening the life of your tires. Most tire manufacturers recommend that tires should be replaced about every six years, regardless of whether they have been driven 50,000 miles or 50 miles. This is also typically the time limit for warranties, regardless of mileage or treads depth. If your tires reach the ten-year mark, the rubber has weakened, and driving safety is compromised.

With the tire service tips below, you can keep your tires in good condition for as long as possible:

  • Maintain correct Inflation pressure – The right air pressure (psi) will ensure that your tires are connecting with the road with the least rolling resistance, that the tread wears more evenly, and that you are getting the best fuel economy.
  • Inspect your tires – At least once a week, check the condition of your tires by looking for cuts or slashes in the rubber, tread belts that are showing, or uneven tread wears patterns.
  • Rotate tires – Have your tires rotated about every 6,000 to 8,000 miles (about every other oil change) so that the tread and rubber wear in an even pattern.
  • Necessary wheel alignments – This keeps wheels going straight in the same direction, and prevents uneven tread wear.
  • Tires balanced – Weights placed on specific points of the tire balances the weight of the tire and wheel, ensuring they work together in tandem for a smooth safe ride.

When you visit your auto shop for other car services, such as oil changes or tire rotation, ask your mechanic to give you an estimate of how much longer your tires may last. Unusual vibrations or hard steering are signs that your tires may be wearing out. Don’t compromise the driving safety of your vehicle due to bad tires!
