A Few Signs You Should Replace Your Tires

At Bill George's Olathe Kia, we have a goal to keep our customers informed about how they can keep their vehicles in good condition. A monthly visual inspection can let you know if your tires are worn and need to be replaced. Although tires are long-lasting, if they are not replaced over time, it could lead to a sudden blow out.

You can check the tread depth by performing the Penny Test. This test is carried out with a penny. Take the penny and place it between the tread block with Lincoln's head facing up. If you can't see his head, then you have adequate depth. However, if the top of Lincoln's head emerges from the block, then it's time to have your tires replaced.

It is also important to keep an eye out for bulges and blisters because they are weak spots that can lead to a blowout. If you notice cracks or cuts on the sidewall, a leak is probably developing in your tire, so have it replaced as soon as possible.
