How do I know if I have a problem with my tire?
Usually it’s obvious, but this is not always the case.
- Excessive or too little air pressure
- Foreign objects have penetrated the tire (nails, screws, glass, etc.)
- Problems with the suspension
- Splitting or protruding treads or sidewalls could indicate there is wear or a weak point
- Tread is tearing away from the body of the tire
- Unequal tire wear might also indicate you need to rotate your tires
- Wheel alignment or tire balancing issues
How often should I inspect my tires?
Inspect your tires monthly for excessive or irregular tread wear, scrapes, snags, cuts, bulges, cracks, impact damage, punctures, stones, or other debris embedded in the tread, etc.
We will do everything we can to salvage your tire. Indeed, simply a plug and a patch can add thousands of miles to the life of a damaged tire.
However, sometimes a tire is beyond repair.
According to professional industry standards set by the Rubber Manufacturer’s Association (RMA), a tire with a tread puncture larger that ¼-inch (6mm) should not be repaired. In addition, puncture repairs are only applicable for the tread area. Tires worn down to the tire’s treadwear indicators or to 2/32-inch remaining tread depth should not be repaired.
