Tire Repair Signs

There are many noticeable signs of wear and tear on your tires that can help you seek an automotive repair shop sooner. Head to the nearest repair shop if you notice these warning signs:

  • Bent rims: Most cars today come equipped with aluminum tire rims. If you happen to strike a large object, the rims are more susceptible to bending.
  • Bulging sidewalls: If you happen to run over a large object like a tree limb, the tire could bulge out sideways making a noticeable bubble shape.
  • Car pulling to one side: If you notice the car attempting to continuously pull to either the left or right, the alignment of your tires may be off.

How Long Do Tires Last?

Tire repairs may come about if you've recently run over a nail on the street or perhaps you got into a small fender bender. The occasional bumping into a curb can certainly require a repair as well. But for many folks, the tire repairs we handle are mostly due to one simple thing-old age.

Tires only last so long. As a tire ages, the tread on the tire diminishes, leading to a loss of traction and, consequently, a loss in overall performance for your model. So just how long do tires usually hold up? The answer depends on certain variables we're happy to go over with you, and the most common answer is somewhere between five and seven years, or just over 50,000 miles.

The lifespan of your tires is going to come down to things like the type of driving you do each day, the type of model you have, and the type of conditions your vehicle is exposed to. Here's a quick breakdown:

  • How Performance Affects Tires: If you have a performance car or even a more casual vehicle, but you do a lot of aggressive driving on your favorite back road, your tires may begin to wear down more rapidly than the usual set. Hard driving means hard braking during high acceleration, which means your tires are running hot and are being asked to do a lot of work.
  • How Weather Affects Tires: If you log a ton of miles each year no matter the weather conditions, this can also play a role in the overall lifespan of your tires. Tremendous cold or long days spent driving in excessive heat can cause the tread of the tire to wear down or even cause the rubber to bubble and warp.
  • How the Tire Types Affect Longevity: Finally, there are different types of tires you can have installed on your vehicle. In our shop alone we can install winter tires, performance tires, all-terrain tires, and more. If the type of tires you've installed don't match your driving habits, this may cause the set of tires to fade early. For instance, performance tires won't hold up well to off-roading, while summer tires will perform poorly in the winter months.

How Can I Check if My Tires Are Still Good?

If you're beginning to think your tires are wearing down, you can actually check their effectiveness on your own before booking a visit to our tire repair shop. The basic premise of this procedure, which is referred to as the penny test, is to determine how much tread is left on your tires:

  • First, grab a penny and flip it upside down so Lincoln's forehead is facing the ground.
  • Next, place the penny into the tread of your tires.
  • If your tires still have general grip left, the top of Lincoln's forehead should disappear into the tread. If, on the other hand, the top of his forehead is completely visible, it suggests most of the tread has worn away and you need a new set of tires installed.
