Do I really need new tires? Performance Repair Automotive in Coaldale offers some tips to help you tell if it’s time to replace your tires


Like it or not, tires on a vehicle eventually have to be replaced. But how do you avoid being fleeced for tires that you don’t really need? Lots of tire shops have fast-talking salespeople whose sole job is to upsell you products you don’t need. At Performance Repair Automotive in Coaldale, we believe that being informed is your best weapon against being ripped off. Read on for easy tips to consider.

  1. Age. How long have you had your current tires? Most tire manufacturers recommend tire replacement at 6 years or so and no longer than 10 years. All tires have a date stamp on the sidewall that indicates the year and month of manufacture.

  2. Weathering. Tires are obviously exposed to a wide range of elements. Because rubber is a natural material, it will break down over time. Check your tires regularly for fine cracks in the sidewall and between tread blocks.

  3. Bulging. Significant impact with potholes or curbs can sometimes cause a bulge in your tire. This is caused by air getting between the inner liner of the tire and the outer material layers, resulting in an air pocket forming at the weakened area. If this is not dealt with, the bulge could rupture, causing serious damage or potential injury.

  4. Tread depth. The tread of your tires is essential to provide traction on the road. Without suitable tread depth, your tires are a safety hazard. Once your tread reaches 2/32 of an inch, it’s definitely time to replace your tires. To measure tread, you can use a tread depth gauge or use this simple coin trick:

    • Using a nickel, insert the coin with Queen Elizabeth's crown facing down in several different locations in the tire. If you can see the top of the Queen's crown, your tire is below 2/32 of an inch and needs to be replaced.
