How to tell if your tires need replacing.

1. Identifying different types of damage.

Tire damage is easily the most annoying reason to ever have to replace a tire. Potholes, curbs, debris in the street, and much more can turn a routine drive into a lengthy and expensive ordeal. Slow and discrete air leaks or just low tire pressure can be the death of your tires, so if you notice any cracking or small damage to the sidewall or that the tread is not deep enough, you should replace your tires sooner rather than later.

2. Wisconsin seasonal effects. 

The first night of cold Wisconsin weather will start to change the air pressure in your tires. Temperature changes in Wisconsin cause fluxtuations in your tire pressure because the air will expand and contract inside them. When your tire pressure drops in the fall and winter, potholes, curbs, and debris have a higher potential to cause a flat. Not to mention trying to drive on snow and ice without reliable tread on your tires. 

3. Unnatural Sounds & Vibrations

Every month, your tires will deflate about one pound every square inch. It is highly unlikely you’ll ever lose your full tire pressure in 30 days, but keeping an eye on your inflation pressure will be key in monitoring the status of your car or truck’s wheels. If this isn’t monitored, vibrations and noises can occur while you’re out driving. If you notice these sounds coming from under your car seats, there’s a chance your tires may no longer be balanced – this can also cause your steering wheel to vibrate. Being aware of your car tires and their pressure will be key in helping you know when your tires are ready to be replaced or not.

Replace your tires at Sturtevant Auto & Save Money

Sturtevant Auto sells lightly used tires for way less than what you'll find at your neighborhood tire shop for a brand new set of Firestones or Bridgestones. We offer tires (and rims) of all sizes for cars and trucks. We also offer winter tires for our harsh Midwest winters. Check out our tires page for more info.
