Are you debating on buying new tires? Nancy explains three reasons good tire tread depth alone is worth the value of buying new tires today!
Were you and your friends just having this intense conversation about the tires on your vehicle?
Were they giving you tips on when to replace your tires and why?
Wow, you got such good friends because they care about their safety, or they’re boring friends because truly it’s not the best topic of conversation you’ve got going.
Well, I say they’re really good friends.
Hi, I’m Nancy at Kneble’s Auto Service Center.
Purchasing new tires can certainly be costly, so you want to make sure you really need them, because truly I rather spend my money on new clothes or even a vacation, depending on the price of those tires.
Ah, maybe the same.
The simplest and easy way to determine if you need tires is to check the tire tread depth. Anybody can do this. Using a penny, if you can find one these days. Put the penny upside down and inside the tire tread. If you see the top of Lincoln’s head, or you notice that the rubber of the tire appears to be dried out, or you see a cord sticking out of the tire, grease your wallet because it’s time to buy the tires.
Knowing the benefits of a good tire will hopefully ease the blow of that big purchase. Feel comfortable buying new tires because there are many benefits, safety being the biggest benefit, having good tire treads because your tires will grip the road, preventing you from sliding when you have to stop.
You will have a better stopping distance with good tread, therefore, feel safe in a panic stop if you have to, because you’ll stay firm in place. Better traction for stability depending on whether it’s raining, snowing, dry roads, you have good traction.
Along with good traction, make sure you also have a proper tread design for the condition of that road you’re driving in. For example, if you’re driving on the road or on the beaches, you need beefy tires for the beaches. If you drive on heavily snowed areas, consider purchasing the mountain snowflake-rated tire.
Make sure your tires are designed for the terrain you drive on and the season for which you need them.
Having the right tire tread, depending on the good design for gripping the road and the ground gives you better gas mileage. If your vehicle needs to work harder because those tires are worn out, well, your gas mileage is going to be affected negatively.
Remember proper air pressure in the tires helps the tires not to wear out before they should.
Remember you want good optimum gas mileage, so you want the right tire tread.
