When Do You Know You Need New Tires?

It is a fact that tires will eventually need to be replaced. Many people put this part of vehicle maintenance off as long as possible because good tires can be expensive. However, that is dangerous because tires are what keep your car on the road.

There are some signs of when your tires need replacing. The penny test is a way to see if there is tread left. Put a standard Lincoln penny with Lincoln's head upside down into your tread. If his entire head is visible, you need new tires. Look for cracks or damage in sidewalls. These can be obvious, but some look like scratches or grooves. Sidewalls can't be patched, so you will need new tires.

Drivers understand that good tires equal safety. We at Acura of Laurel understand that too and can quickly replace your tires. Come to our Acura service center to have your tires checked and replaced.
