Do you need new tires? You likely don't think you do, at least not until you have a tire blow out on you or you have your tires get so bald that it's hard to navigate the roads. Tires have a shelf life based on actual age and how many miles are placed on them at any given time, so your driving habits, the distances you cover, the type of tires you have, and how old the tread you have on your tires is can greatly affect how long your tires will continue to last.
Luckily, when you need to replace one or more tires, the costs are often not that great as long as you shop wisely for new tires. You can also benefit in getting new tires besides just having some aesthetically looking wheels on your car. You can replace your tires with new or used tires, but it's often best to get new tires over a gently used older one. Here are reasons to get new tires if you just aren't sure if you are ready for the investment.
You car can run better
Your car can run a lot better if you do the right thing and get tires when they're ready to be replaced. If your car is skidding all over the place on even dry roads, you have trouble gaining traction on anything other than gravel, or if the tread is so worn your car rides as if it's a bumpy go everywhere you are, get the tires replaced. It's best to replace all the tires on your car, then have the tires rotated periodically to keep the tread wear even all around.
Your car can be safer
A tire that is very old and worn out can be a risk on the road, particularly if you do a lot of freeway driving on an old or balding tire. Your car can be safer against a tire blowing out if you follow the manufacture warranty and guidelines associated with your vehicle's tires and have the tires replaced as they start to get older and worn out.
If any part of the inner softer rubber lining of your tires is exposed, have the affected tires replaced or patched right away. Your auto service technician will be able to assess the overall health of your tires and they will also be able to keep your tires in their best condition by rotating them and repairing them as needed in the future. Research the tire dealers in your area to make sure you get the best tires possible.
