When Do I Need New Tires?

As you know, tires can get worn down after a while. After all, they are the only part of your vehicle that touches the ground. The best way to know if you need new tires is to pay attention to the warning signs.

The most important thing you can do is pay attention to the tread depth. The tread on your tires should not fall below 1/16 of an inch in depth. The good news is, you can test your tread depth yourself by using a penny. That’s right, a penny. Just take your penny and insert it head-down into the tread. If Abe’s entire head is visible, bring your car down to the Prime Subaru Hyannis service department in Hyannis and purchase a new set.

Another warning sign we tell our Barnstable drivers to look out for is any cracking in the sidewall. If you see any cracks, your tire may have a leak. If you see any blisters on the tire, it could lead to a blowout, so it’s important to keep your safety in mind.

If our Yarmouth or Harwich drivers feel vibration when they drive, your tires could be unbalanced. But that’s not always the case, sometimes the problem is the tire itself. Again, it’s better to be safe and have your tires checked by one of our professionals.
