5 Signs you need new tires to you vehicle

1 Bulges, gouges or cracks

When a tire in Lebanon deflates, it bulges at the sides. This is a sign of low tire pressure or a slow air leak. “If you see cracks in the sidewall, gouges or anything that looks odd, take it in to Bridgestone dealer and have them look at it.”

2 Tread wear

Place a penny into the tread, with Lincoln’s head pointing down. If you can still see the top of his noggin, the tread is dangerously low. Most modern tires, however, have wear bars: bits of rubber woven into the pattern at a specific depth.

3 Tire pressure

Tires deflate at a rate of about one pound per square inch (PSI) per month. You’re not going to wear your tires down in a month, but you should check that you have the right inflation pressure.

4 Temperature

Tire pressure drops in extreme cold. If you’re heading out on a road trip with an underinflated tire, it will generate more heat and wear out faster.

5 Vibration

Watch out for vibration or thumping when you’re driving. If it feels like it’s coming from under the seats, the rear tires may be out of balance. Vibration from the steering wheel could indicate suspension issues.
