When Is It Time for New Tires and Which Ones Do You Choose?




 

Just because we don’t have harsh winters in Gilbert like there are in the north doesn't mean that you shouldn't still consider tire service and replacements seasonally. Tires are crucial for your safety and performance when driving in the Phoenix. The right tires or the wrong amount of wear can make all the difference in your driving experience and confidence.

Do You Need New Tires?

Having sufficient tread on your tires significantly changes your handling and stopping distances. If you don’t check your tires' tread depth routinely, it's possible that the depth is too shallow and no longer safe.

What is tire tread? It’s the rubber grooves on the circumference of your tires. Tread wear is a normal part of driving, but driving habits and conditions can cause premature wear or uneven wear. As this happens, tires become less responsive and have a higher risk of popping.

Mesa drivers can check the tread depth of their tires for themselves by inserting a penny head-first into the grooves across and around each tire. The tread is too shallow if you can see the top of Lincoln's head, meaning that there is less than 2/32 of an inch remaining. If you are feeling unsure if you can accurately determine your tires' tread depth, our highly skilled service team is happy to help.

Our factory-trained service team can make the call about tread depth for you and also give you a heads up if your tires are wearing unevenly or when they may need replacing.

Which New Tires Do I Choose?

Again, if you don’t want to go to the effort of figuring it out, then our service team can help you decide based on your vehicle and your driving needs. To find this out on your own, check your owner's manual or the inside of the driver's side doorjamb to learn which tires your vehicle needs.
