How to Know When it’s Time for Tire Replacement

Replacing an entire set of tires can be costly. Therefore, most drivers are looking to extend the life of their tires for as long as possible. How do you know when it is high time to replace your tires?

Check Your Tread

Once the tread of a tire has worn down considerably, to around 232 of an inch (0.16 cm), the tire is generally no longer considered safe and legal in Texas. Tires typically have a tread bar which helps you determine when it’s time to replace your tires. If the tread bar is flush with the tire’s surface, you should replace your tires immediately.

Look for Damage on Tires

Tires tend to wear down differently depending on whether they are at the front or the back of the vehicle. Irregular wear and tire damage can also occur with misalignment or improper air pressure. Uneven tread wear does not necessarily mean that you have to replace your tires instantly. However, you should consult a tire shop promptly as you may need to rotate your tires or align your wheels. 

If you notice a bubble or bulge on the sidewall of your tire, you should seek help from a tire repair shop as soon as possible, as you may be susceptible to a tire blowout. Bulges and bubbles point to tire damage and typically appear after hitting a curb or a deep pothole. 

Steering Wheel Vibration

Any vibrations of the steering wheel can point to unevenly worn tires that could need replacing. However, if your tires are not overly worn, your car may simply need a wheel alignment, tire rotation, or wheel balancing. 

There can be other signs of damage that may require tire repair or replacement. Getting advice from a professional tire shop can help keep you safe and save money in the long term. The tire professionals at Driver’s Edge can assess your tires and either recommend repair, replacement with brand-new tires, or maintenance services that can solve your tire issues.

Why You Should Choose Tire Repair Professionals

Having new tires fitted or getting tires repaired by tire experts can provide you with a safer car as well as better performance. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 738 individuals died in accidents due to tire issues in 2017 alone. The NHTSA further states that poor maintenance, low air pressure, and skipping tire rotation can lead to flat tires and blowouts. 

The number one reason for using a professional tire shop to service and replace your tires is safety. Other reasons include:

Better Results

In theory, almost anyone can fit a set of tires or repair a tire. There are even online tutorials that can show you how. However, in practice, only qualified tire experts can ensure that your tires are repaired and replaced professionally and safely. Experts have the experience, training, and tools to do the job properly. Working with a respected and trusted tire shop in Dallas can give you better results and peace of mind. 

Tire Deals and Other Savings

Quality tires are a considerable investment. However, a professional tire repair shop can make tire purchase, repair, and service more affordable with special offers and coupons. Driver’s Edge frequently provides offers and coupons for services and products, including new tires, tire rotation, and wheel alignment, for example. Why pay more if you don’t have to? Simply sign up to our email offers and display coupons on your phone or print them when you come to the repair shop. 

Guarantees on Products and Services

A good tire shop that is confident in its products and services will offer warranties on tires and guarantees on its maintenance services. Using a professional tire change and repair service can save you headaches and money. If you require tire repair and servicing, Driver’s Edge in Dallas can help.

What to Look for in a Tire Store

Finding a trustworthy and professional tire store will require some research. According to Consumer Reports, things to look out for when choosing a repair shop include:

The Tire Shop Stocks Your Tires

Tire shops that focus on your preferred brands of tires will have the training, expertise, and equipment required to fit and repair the tires adequately. They are also more likely to have tire deals making tire replacement more affordable. Driver’s Edge specializes in all major tire brands, including Bridgestone, Goodyear, Dunlop, Kumho, Firestone, Michelin, and many more. 

Referrals from Friends and Family

Getting a referral from friends or family can be a great way to find a trustworthy tire shop. Another good way to check the reputation of a tire shop is to browse reviews on Google, Yelp, or Angie’s List. 

Mechanics Should Be ASE-Certified

If you want to ensure that work on your car is carried out to a recognized standard, look out for certification by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). The mechanics at Driver’s Edge are ASE-certified and comprehensively trained.

The Tire Shop Helps You Save

One sign that you have found a professional and trustworthy tire shop is that there is no aggressive upselling. For instance, if only one of your tires needs repair or replacing, you may not need to purchase four brand-new tires. A quality tire shop will honestly advise you rather than focusing only on profit. A good tire shop should also have tire deals, special offers on services, and coupons saving you money too.

Questions to Ask a Tire Shop

Questions that can help you narrow down your choices of tire shop include: 

  • Are there warranties and guarantees on tires and maintenance services?
  • Do you have a location near me?
  • Is there a pickup and drop-off service?
  • Do you have a customer lounge with WIFI if I need to wait? 
  • Do you offer any savings on services and tires, such as special offers and coupons?
  • Do you carry all major brands of tires in case I need a replacement tire? 

Getting a “yes” to all of those questions will make your life a little easier when it comes to having work done on your car. Driver’s Edge offers all this and more. Book an appointment at a Driver’s Edge location near you.
