Damaged or low-quality tires can wreak havoc on your car – and your wallet. Driving on low tread tires or tires with any type of defects drastically increase the likelihood of blowing a tire and causing damage to other parts of your car.
Luckily, if you need tires, Champtires can get you the brand and size your car requires at a huge discount.
If you’re not sure of what kind of shape your tires are in, here are a few things to check for:
- Worn treads. Stick a penny in the tread, top first. If the tread doesn’t touch Lincoln’s head, your tires are worn. (Watch a short video demonstration.) If you have low tread, you’ll want to replace that tire(s) immediately. Champtires can help you and either get one, two or three tires to match your other tires’ tread levels or fix you up with a whole set.
- Damage to the treads or sidewalls. This indicates that the tire is not performing properly. Again, at Champtires, you can get one, two, three or a full set of high-quality-used tires for a fraction of the cost of new tires.
- Objects, like a nail or glass, poking into the tire.
- Tread pulling away from the tire.
If you notice uneven wear, that could mean too much or too little air pressure, problems with your car’s alignment or problems with the steering or suspension. Stop by Champtires, and we’ll take a look for you.
