Flat Tire? Don’t Stress.

Flat Tire? Don't Stress.

Having a flat or damaged tire is never going to be fun or happen at an ideal time. But Champtires can help alleviate some of the financial stress by saving you up to 80 percent on a replacement tire.

With more than 30,000 premium used tires in stock, Champtires can simply match the tread depth — and even the brand — to your remaining tires.

It’s important to note that if you’re replacing one tire, its tread level should match its counterpart. So front tire tread depths should match and back tire tread depths should be the same. Front and back tires should always be within 2/32 of each other.

If someone tells you that you can’t only replace one tire (or two) and insists that you need to buy two (or a whole set), be sure to question them as to exactly why…tread depths matching is what matters.

How To Find Your Tire Size and Determine Tire Tread Depth

Find Tire Size

Tire Size

Tire sizes are a series of numbers that refer to the tire’s width, aspect ratio and rim size. They are typically found in two places:

  1. On the tire’s sidewall. (See above image for an example)
  2. On a sticker on the inside of the driver’s car door.

You can also search Champtires’ website to find out what tire size(s) fits your vehicle.

Tread Depth

In the U.S., the accepted measurement for tire tread levels are in 32nds of an inch. Tire tread gauges are used to obtained specific measurements. Most passenger tires start out with a tread level of 10/32. States, like Pennsylvania, that have vehicle safety inspections require tires to have certain tread depths to pass. Typically, tire tread above 2/32 of an inch is considered to be adequate. However, some tests have shown that 4/32 is a much safer guideline to follow.

Learn how to use a tire tread gauge.

When tires are worn or nearly bald, the penny test is useful.

Champtires has more than 30,000 premium used tires in stock, and our prices are so low that you’ll save up to 80 percent off the cost of new tires. Every tire that enters our warehouse is inspected and tested, and we offer a 14-day satisfaction guarantee.

Tire Safety in the Rain

Reduce your risk of hydroplaning and make sure your car’s tires are not worn or bald.

ernest-brillo-745525-unsplash

Typically, tire tread above 2/32 of an inch is considered to be adequate. However, some tests have shown that 4/32 is a much safer guideline to follow, especially in dangerous weather conditions like rain and wet roads.

When tires are worn—or even bald—their grooves are no longer able to adequately obtain traction. This causes hydroplaning, or the loss of steering, braking and power control.

And hydroplaning can occur even on damp roads, so it is important to be aware of your tires tread levels. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recommends checking tire tread levels monthly. Learn how to quickly inspect your tires.

If your tire tread depths are low, don’t let the high cost of new tires prevent you from replacing them. Champtires sells premium used tires at the lowest prices. With more than 30,000 tires in stock, Champtires can get you the size, brand and tread depth you need—all while saving you up to 80% off the cost of new tires.

Why Buy Used Tires?

If you’re in the market for tires, considering used tires is a good choice if you’re looking to save money. However, not all used tire stores are created equally, so make sure that you purchase used tires from a reputable seller, such as Champtires.

Even if you just need to replace one tire, the cost of rubber has increased dramatically recently and has caused the price of brand new tires to skyrocket. High-quality used tires are a much more affordable option.

Used tires are also an environmentally friendly choice – you will be using a premium, recycled product.
