When should I replace my tires?

Most tires have an average lifespan of 25,000 - 50,000 miles and most people follow the general rule to buy new tires after six years or 40,000 miles. Without knowing when to replace your tires, drivers are risking flats, blowouts, or losing grip during harsh conditions.

Depending on external factors such as weather, storage conditions, and conditions of use, tires can degrade much faster. You should definitely replace your tires if they are older than 6 years or you notice any of these conditions:

    • The tread has worn down to less than 3/32"

    • Bulges, blisters, or bubbles

    • Cracking in the tread grooves

    • Punctures, cuts, snags, or separation in the tire tread, shoulder, or sidewall

    • Sudden loss of tire pressure

    • Poor handling or traction on slippery surfaces

    • Pulling to one side while driving

    • Sudden vibration while driving

    • Tires that have been driven while flat

You should also replace your spare tire when you replace the road tires or after six years due to aging even if it has not been used. Always check your owner’s manual for specific guidelines.

When should I rotate my tires?

Tires should be rotated every 6,000-8,000 miles or as recommended in your owner's manual.

Tire rotations are important in making sure that they wear evenly, extending their life and the time between new tire purchases..

Front tires can wear faster than back tires due to weight differences and the way you drive. This maintains your vehicle’s handling and traction capabilities, especially in inclement weather.
