How to Tell if Your Tires Need to be Replaced

At Prestige Lexus of Middletown, we have a goal to help our drivers stay safe when they are behind the wheel. Your vehicle's tires are vital because they help control traction, handling, steering, braking, and stability. If you notice any of the following signs, your tires may need to be replaced.

Tire damage can sometimes surface in the sidewall, which is why it is important to look for cuts or cracks in the sidewall. When there is a crack, you may observe grooves that are noticeable after the first or second glance. A crack in the sidewall is a sign that your tire is starting to leak, so be sure to have it inspected as soon as possible.

Another sign of a worn tire is when the outer surface begins to blister or bulge excessively. Bulges and blisters make a tires extremely susceptible to a sudden blow out. Be sure to make an appointment at our service center if you notice anything protruding from the tires' surfaces.
