Automotive Tips from Amity Motors: Tire Replacement Overview

Posted July 11, 2017 2:13 AM

Tires are an expensive purchase, so knowing when tires should be replaced is important for Woodbridge drivers. Tires will just wear out with normal use. The depth of the tread on your tire determines how well it will stop, start and steer – especially in wet conditions. 4/32th of an inch (3.2 mm) of tire tread is considered a safe amount of tread.

Uneven tread wear can be a symptom of other problems, and simply replacing your tires will not prevent the same uneven wear from happening to the new tires. At Amity Motors in Woodbridge, we can inspect your tires for excessive or uneven wear. Unusual wear may lead to further inspection of steering, suspension or alignment problems. We can help with necessary repairs and with getting you the right tires for your needs.
