Do You Know Enough About Your Tires?

Do You Know Enough About Your Tires? | Weber Automotive | Cleveland, Ohio

Tires are one of the most important parts of your car. They are a wear item, and they're not cheap, so you want to keep maintain them by keeping them inflated. However, when it does come time to replace them, Weber Automotive is here to help!

Why is it Important to Keep Up on Your Tires?

Tires are your contact between your vehicle and the road. They're essential for safely stopping, turning, and accelerating. Traction is also hugely dependent on your tires, and if they are old and worn, it can cause some problems.

How to Tell When it is Time for New Tires

It is important to know when to replace your tires. All tires have a wear bar on them; it is a horizontal line that becomes visible as the tire wears down.

How to tell when your tires need to be replaced | North Olmsted, Ohio

 

Another trick to tell when it is time for new tires is with a penny! You take the penny and stick it into the tread on your tire, and if you can see the top of Lincoln's head, your tires are worn out, and it's time for some new ones.

Many people don't know that the age of their tires is important, and you can tell how old every single tire is. All tires have a Department of Transportation (DOT) number on them that signify when that tire was manufactured. The last four digits on that number tell you how old it is; the first two numbers of the last four number are the week (out of 52), and the last two are the year. 

There is no federal mandate for retire age, but most tire and auto manufacturers believe six years is about as long as they last. This is because the rubber compounds change, the tires get harder, making it more dangerous to drive in certain weather such as snow and rain.

Don't Let Tire Salesmen Fool You!

Something to watch out for is that some stores may sell tires that have never been on the road, but they are actually old. Though the tires still have all their tread, they still aren't 100% safe because they are older. Be sure to check the DOT number before buying new tires!


If you need a new set of tires, just one tire, need a rotation, or anything of the like, contact us at Weber Automotive today! We always have great specials on tires, we offer scheduled maintenance, and we offer free tire rotation for life when you buy four tires!
