Tires are literally the life of a vehicle. They’re the propellers of a vehicle. Without them, your vehicle cannot move. With that said, it’s necessary that you drive on tires that are in fine shape. Oftentimes, we ignore this truth, but it’s not fine. Driving with expired and bad tires can expose you to dangers. Always make sure you keep an eye out for indicators you may need to replace yours. These tips will help you with that…
WATCH OUT FOR A WORN THREAD
Tires these days come with thread wear indicator bars; a technology added to help notify you when it’s time to replace a tire. These bars are usually invisible, but as a tire gets older, they begin to show. You know it’s time to replace your tire when the thread wears off so much the indicator begins to show.
Vibrations occur in your wheels when tires are wrongly aligned or balanced. It also happens when there’s a fault in the tire. You should immediately stop to change it as it could expose your life to danger.
CRACKS OR CUTS IN THE SIDEWALL
Tire Cracks and cuts are dangerous for both you and your vehicle’s wellbeing. They can lead to a sudden collapse or blowout of your tire, and can cause serious damage to your health. Every now and then, check for cracks and cuts on your tire.
BULGES AND BLISTERS
If the outer surface of the tire gets weak, bulges and blisters will occur and will extend outward from the rest of the surface. Keep an eye on the tire bulges and blisters, because these can cause a sudden blow out of the tire. Bulges and blisters are clearly visible and can be noticed easily.
Take care of your tire, take care of your vehicle, take care of your life.
