Is it Time to Replace Those Tires?

As the part of the vehicle that makes contact with the road, the health of your tires is a critical piece in the function of any vehicle. Tire failure can have disastrous consequences, making it important that you stay on top of your tire maintenance. The tire experts at Volvo of Corvallis want you to be an educated driver fully in control of the proper function of your vehicle.

The most common way to test the wear and tear of your tire is to simply take a penny and stick it with the head upside down into the tread. If you are able to see the top of the head, the tread has worn down enough that it is time to purchase new tires.

Other signs that your tires need to replaced include cracks on the sidewall, uneven treadwear patterns, bulges extending from the tires, and excessive vibration while driving.
