Just how do I know if I need to get my tires fixed or replace?

Tire concerns endanger your driving experience, putting you and your passengers at a greater risk of a crash. If you get a flat or worn tire, you will either have to get the tire fixed or replaced completely.

The most noticeable indicator of a damaged tire is a loss of atmospheric pressure, which could cause air to leak out gradually or all at once. Leaks usually do not stem from a slit or cut in the tire; the source of the leakage might be the valve stem on the tire that has broken over time. For punctured tires, the tire can most likely be fixed with a spot or a plug and doesn’t have to be totally changed. However, tires with a cracked or split sidewall can not be safely fixed and the tire will need to be replaced.

Like any part of your car, your tires can break over time. Here are some indications your tires need to be changed soon:

Your tires are bald (they’ve lost tread and also are flat).

Your tires’ sidewalls have cracks. The sidewalls can wear down in time because of rain, ice, as well as natural aging.

Your auto is constantly shaking, even on smooth roads.

You have been driving with a spare tire for a while. Spare tires are not as resilient as regular tires and supply much less traction and much less cornering capacity.

You have cables showing. If any kind of cords from your tires are showing, this is a sure indicator that they need to be replaced.

If you are in Lake in the Hills or bordering areas and notice that one or more of your tires is over inflated, under filled with air, or are tilted horizontally or up and down, bring your car or truck to SJM AutoWerks today and we can assess and also fix the problem.
