HOW DO I KNOW WHEN MY TIRES NEED REPLACED?
Low Tire Tread
The Department of Transportation (DOT) considers tire tread depth below 2/32" as having reached the end of its useful life and should be replaced.
If your tire(s) are punctured in an area that's unable to be repaired or if there is any material such as steel or fabric that is exposed and is visible, the tire will need to be repaired or replaced immediately.
Visually check your tires for uneven or irregular wear, bulges on the sidewalls, or any other signs of irregular or uneven tire tread wear.
Should I replace 2 or 4 tires?
The best practice according to the
Tire Industry Association (TIA)
is to replace all four tires at one time to
avoid drive-train damage and maintain consistent tread wear
. For certain all-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive vehicles, the manufacturer recommends all four wheels to be replaced to avoid inevitable drive-train damage.
If you need only two tires, then we recommend mounting the new tires on the rear axle of the vehicle.
Please check with your vehicle's owner manual to see if your vehicle qualifies for these manufacturer requirements.
WHY SHOULD THE NEW/BETTER TIRES BE INSTALL ON THE REAR AXLE?
While the best practice is to replace all four
, when replacing only two
should be installed on the
of the vehicle. If the
are installed on the front axle with worn
, then the vehicle may be more likely to lose control when turning in wet or slippery conditions.
