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.

What are the different types of tires and what is right for me?

Advantages of Winter Tires

Winter tires are specifically designed for the colder months. The special tread design and rubber compound used in winter tires make the rubber softer in the winter compared to summer or all-season tires. This provides better traction in winter weather conditions , for handling on snow and ice-covered roads. Drivers can enjoy better control, stability, and shorter braking distances, even on slippery roads.

Advantages of Summer Tires

Summer tires are perfect for handling warm weather and dry roads, which makes them a popular choice for high-performance vehicles and drivers who enjoy a sportier driving experience. They have a more rigid tread pattern and a harder rubber compound, making them ideal for warmer temperatures.

Advantages of All-Season Tires

All-season tires offer a good balance between winter and summer performance, making them a convenient choice for drivers who don’t want to switch tires between seasons. However, it's important to note that all-season tires may not perform as well as dedicated winter or summer tires in extreme conditions due to it being more of a compromise between the two types of tires. If you live in a region with harsh winter weather, all-season tires may not provide the same level of safety and performance as winter tires. For those who live in areas with moderate weather conditions, all-season tires might be the most convenient and make the most sense for year-round driving.
