Understanding Tire Wear

New tires should last about 50,000 miles as long as you drive your car regularly. If you drive less than 6,000 miles a year, then they may wear out sooner because of age. Many drivers, however, find that they have to replace their tires sooner than that. If that is your case, then examine the tire wear pattern as it will give you clues on why your tires are not lasting as long as they should.

If you notice wear on the inside or outside edges of the tire, then you probably need to have your car aligned before you put new tires on your ride. This can happen if you hit a large pothole or if the vehicle is in any type of accident.

Alternatively, if the center of your tire seems to be wearing out first, then you need to check the tire pressure. Usually, the tire does not have enough air in it.

Regardless of the reason, come see our tire experts. They can help you figure out the best tires for your vehicle.
