Are Your Tires In Bad Shape?

You don't want a blowout on the road. A blown tire can lead to a fatal accident. Unfortunately, not everyone knows when it is time to replace a vehicle's tires. Educate yourself about tire wear. Be on the lookout for some visible signs.

Worn treads represent its time to get new tires. Once the treads become too low, the tires cease to be safe to drive. Performing the basic "penny test" could reveal how worn the tires are. If the treads are visibly showing treadwear patterns, the tires' condition is poor. And do the tires mysteriously lose air? That's a bad sign, too.

Cracks on the sidewall and dry rot due to age or the weather represent dangerous tires. Dry rotted or cracked tires may come apart while driving and create a severe accident risk.

Don't drive around on old, dangerous tires. Go to Genesis of Amherst to purchase and install new ones on your car.
