When Should You Replace Your Car’s Tyres?
If you are planning to replace your tyres, there is a wide range of tyres available from Gold Coast Tyres that will beat any competitor in terms of price and quality. However, before you replace your tyres, it makes sense to determine whether you actually need to buy new ones. If you are not sure during inspection, you can ask the tyre dealer for his suggestions.
How will you know when it is time to replace your tyres? Physical factors that will affect your tyres include age and wear. Your tyres can easily be damaged if the road conditions in your area include potholes, speed bumps, curbs, sharp objects and obstacles. It is important to have the tyres professionally inspected in the event that they have sustained damage while driving on rough roads.
The treads will tell you if you need tyre replacement. The penny test will tell you whether the tyres are still safe on the roads. Place the penny head first on the tread grooves across the tyre. If you see the top of Lincoln’s head, it means that your tyres are worn out and need replacement. If part of Lincoln’s head is always covered by the tread, there is still 2/32 of an inch of tread depth remaining which means that that the tyre can still be used safely.
It is very dangerous to drive on the roads when the tyre is already damaged. The car can respond poorly when it rains or if there is snow on the roads. Good treads will allow the tyre to grip the road better. Your attention may be called by the authorities because insufficient tread is considered illegal in some states. Before you go on a long trip, inspect your tyres for shallow tread, uneven tread wear and damaged areas to ensure your safety on the roads.
If you are unsure about the results of your inspection, have it examined by a professional at Gold Coast Tyres because they have the expertise and knowledge to determine whether your tyres need replacement. The tyres will be balanced and fitted to guarantee 100% satisfaction.
