When Should You Replace Your Tires?

There are two major aspects to keep in mind, when thinking about tire replacement:

Tire Age

Aging tires means when the components begin to change. Environmental conditions such as snow, rain or extreme heat could have an effect. On the other hand, if your car is sitting idle for too long, this could have its own impacts.

Tire Wear

Tire wear is part and parcel of your car, no matter how good a driver you are. Over time, the tire should wear evenly rather than only on the outside or inside of the tire. If there is irregular wear, that is indicative of your tire pressure or alignment. Wear, in this case, could be accelerated if not taken care of immediately. 

A good way to know when to change your tires is by reading the manufacture date. Every tire has this indicated on it. This can help you decide when to change them.

Industry experts recommend replacing tires at about 6 and before 10 years of age. This depends on how the tires are doing.
