SIGNS OF WEAR
AND DEGRADATION

WORN-OUT TREAD

Caused by too much air pressure or too little air pressure

UNEVEN TREAD WEAR

A sign of possible problems with wheel alignment

FEATHERED TREAD WEAR

May also be caused by wheel alignment issues, as seen from different levels of smoothness and height of the tread ribs

AIR PRESSURE

Check your tire pressure once-a-month. The proper PSI for your vehicle will likely be labeled on the side of the door.

Check and adjust your tire pressure after drastic weather changes. Increases in heat or cold affect tire pressure.

TIRE TREAD

Test your tread monthly with the “quarter test.” Insert a quarter into the most worn groove of a tire. If the top of Washington’s head can be seen, start looking for a new tire.

Tires with proper inflation and tread are more fuel-efficient.

TIRE ROTATION

Every vehicle varies, but tires should normally be rotated once every 5,000 to 7,000 miles.

New tires go on the back axle. This helps drivers maintain control on slippery roads

TIRE BALANCING

When a new tire is installed (or an old tire after a puncture repair), a professional balancing is needed to prevent uneven tire wear or damaging vibration.

WHEEL ALIGNMENT

Misalignment affects tire tread, fuel efficiency, and driving performance.

If your car pulls to the left or right, a professional wheel alignment may be necessary.
